About Jeff Smith and BONE

Jeff Smith is an American cartoonist, best known as the creator of the comic book series BONE. After four years of drawing comic strips for The Ohio State University's student newspaper and starting his own animation studio, Character Builders, in 1986, Smith launched the self-published comic book BONE in 1991. As BONE's popularity grew he became known as a co-founder of the Self-Publishing Movement of the 1990s and an early adopter of the graphic novel format.

BONE is now a New York Times bestselling series and has won numerous awards and honors including 10 Eisner Awards and 11 Harvey Awards, as well as European awards from Italy, Germany, and the French Alph Art. There have been exhibitions of his work, and Smith was the subject of a 2009 documentary called The Cartoonist: Jeff Smith, BONE, and the Changing Face of Comics.
