John R. Smith III was born and raised in the woods of Pennsylvania where his early work took shape in the form of crude doodles in the edges of notebooks because it was more fun than school.

He currently resides in Brooklyn in a sort of  "pig in the city" situation. He makes jpgs & draws pictures for brands, thinks a lot about cartoons, and has strong opinions on the quality of generals tso's chicken in the area.  

It IS his real name. He does NOT know Pocohantas. His parents are NOT unoriginal.
