Lost Sketches Drawn By Bruce Lee

Updated on January 14, 2013

The world knows Bruce Lee the martial artist and movie actor. Few however, have seen his drawings and his artistic talent. In the early 90’s Linda Lee compiled an exhibition of some of his sketches. It is my understanding that the original sketches were purchased by a Japanese collector and have not been in the public since then. For those of you who are interested you can see some of his martial arts sketches in Bruce Lee’s book, The Tao of Jeet Kun Do.

I was friends with a gentleman, since passed on, who had the collection in his possession at that time and was allowed to make a single copy of each sketch. He knew I had studied Jeet Kun Do kung fu under Bruce’s protégé Danny Inosanto and attended the Inosanto Academy with Bruce Lee’s son Brandon Lee. Because of his kindness and my love for all things Bruce Lee, he kindly gave me the copies. I have had them since 1995 and consider them a cherished possession.

I would like to share them with you now and I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I do.

Originally there were seven sketches. I received only six. I have shown one certificate of authenticity I have the other five as well.
