Hey ladies and gentlemen! Guess what I found?
THESE!!!
There are some preliminary sketches done for my most favorite action cartoon of all time—Samurai Jack:

And where did I found them, you may ask?

Well, I have found them last night at the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine archive cache for the Samurai Jack page at Cartoon Network.com’s now-defunct Department of Cartoons webpage, of course.

And someday, folks, I am going to be famous for my love of cartoons, especially the work of Genndy Tartakovsky like Samurai Jack. And someday, my fame and fortune will grow to worldwide/international proportions on account and strength of what I’m hoping for the most complete Samurai Jack behind-the-scenes art collection ever compiled and assembled, and by no means imaginable—one which will take the form of a multi-volume series of lavishly illustrated Samurai Jack coffee-table art books (in print, digital interactive ebook or both forms) or a major traveling art gallery show exhibit showcase, perhaps—The Art of Samurai Jack: An Epic Behind-The-Scenes Celebration of Genndy Tartakovsky’s epic action cartoon series Samurai Jack, no less.

So, what do you think?
