When I first came across Jit Gurung, he was at his desk working on a pile of illustrations. He is a serious artist who I sometimes compare to R. Crumb. Jit works in Pokhara, a resort town centered around a large
lake in Nepal. I found him by admiring a beauty shop sign featuring a clear portrait of Angelina Jolie and asking around about the artist.
He does wonderfully accurate portraits of people. One of my favorite artists.
