Smile by Jim Mitchell (1971)
'Smile', 1971.

Jim Mitchell was a U.S. underground comix artist. He was an early member of the Krupp Comics/Kitchen Sink group, together with Denis Kitchen, Wendel Pugh, Don Glassford and Bruce Walthers. In the early 1970s, he regularly created weekly strips for the alternate paper The Bugle-American, which were subsequently syndicated to other underground newspapers and college papers via the Krupp Syndicate. Mitchell made a graphic contribution to 'ProJunior’ (Kitchen Sink Press, 1971), a one-shot comic book paying homage to Don Dohler's character ProJunior. 

In 1985, he opened the Distant Thunder Studios, a full-service art studio in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Through this studio, he offers a broad range of creative services including portraits, caricatures, paintings, illustrations, graphic design, websites, logos, murals and T-shirt designs.
