The crew includes artists from Dexter's Laboratory, Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, & Ni Hao Kai-lan! This one's for the kids, so try to have one with you when you tune in.


I recently received a Kreativ Blogger Award. How 'bout that? The super-talented Scott Brothers listed me as one of his favorites, so much thanks to ya, Scott!

As part of the rules for the Kreativ Blogger award, I have to nominate the next 7 Kreativ Bloggers, and then list 7 things about myself that people might find interesting. Okay, here's my nominees:
  • I call her the best kept secret in animation, but you can just call Brianne Drouhard "Hey You!"
  • John Struan's SUPERPUNCH blog is full of fun just waiting to be discovered.
  • Most excellent French girlie artist Xavier Ramonède needs to put out book. Like, now.
  • My old pal Dan Krall consistently shares killer animation production art and brilliant sketchwork observations of life.
  • Bob Shea & Lane Smith's Curious Pages blog will provide you with cool children's book illustrations from around the world.
  • Batman Smells is the best year-round Christmas kitsch/culture/design blog out there.
  • If you like movies, you owe it to yourself to check out The Art of the Title Sequence blog.

... and 7 things? Okay, you asked for it:
    1. I've been on TV, radio, and in the newspaper at various times in my life.
    2. As a child, I was encouraged to continue drawing by Sergio Aragones, Al Jaffee, Jim Davis, and Frank Thomas & Ollie Johnston. So it's all their fault.
    3. I am currently without a gaming system and it hurts.
    4. My daughter prefers I read the cartoon-based books to her over my wife, 'cause I can do all the funny voices :)
    5. I love toys and action figures, but I don't buy them (unless they're of a show I work on). It's strictly a spectator thing with me.
    6. My Dad looks like Carl Fredricksen from UP (If he was 6'4")
    7. I really want Thai food for lunch today.
