I became aware of Jones' work while following the work of Barry Windsor Smith, in the late 70's and saw the similarities in both artists pencil drawings. I was also drawn to the masculine tones and themes of Jones' work that I found similar to Frazetta's. Seeing as Smith and Jones shared studio space I guess they must have rubbed off on each other. Maybe Smith was influenced by Jones, I don't really know. I often thought that both were influenced by Frazetta's work. I could be wrong. Either way, both are Great artists.
