Description

“Raiders of the Lost Art”

In the fall of 1977, legendary drag racer James “Jungle Jim” Liberman asked motorsport artist Kenny Youngblood to do a rendering for a sponsorship proposal Jim was pitching to Aim Toothpaste.
This of course was ‘B.C.’ (before computers) and everything was done by hand; Jim’s Monza funny car was drawn with pens and markers, and mounted on an airbrushed background. Before being shipped however, Kenny got the tragic news that Jim had died in a head on collision.
The rendering became one of the artist’s most cherished possessions and would eventually be on display in the gallery he and his wife Terri opened in Orange, California, in 1992. That is, until it was stolen!
Believing he would never see it again, Kenny was pleasantly surprised and amazed when, in 2019, he received an email from a couple who said they had found a drawing of Jungle Jim in the attic of a house they had recently purchased; a house some 1,500 miles from California!
Battered and bruised from its journey, the colorful little piece of drag racing history would eventually make its way back home after being lost for 27 years.

“Jungle Jim” The Lost Art is available as a 12x18 (standard frame size) Limited Edition Print that comes with the Lost Art story and Certificate of Authenticity.
