A little something I drew that Bog Bergen (the voice of Porky Pig) was kind enough to record for me and I turned it into a quick bit of animation. The story ended up being shown on news stations all across the country to remind people to "stay home and stay safe" in March of 2020

I've loved cartoons my whole life. Every Saturday morning as a child, long before the sun came up my brother and I would sneak out of our bedroom, down the hall, passed mom and dad's room and into the living room. With the TV volume on it lowest setting we'd sit cross legged in front of it as close as we possibly could in an attempt to not wake up our parents all while still enjoying our favorite shows.
30 years later my love of cartoons and all things animated has not changed.
In addition to watching cartoons I've also been drawing almost as long as I've been talking. It wasn't enough to just watch the cartoons, I wanted to draw them as well.
Long before the internet we used to have to use these big machines known as 'VCR's and I would record my favorite shows, play them back and pause the tape and try to squint through the bouncing image while I tried to recreate it on paper.
Now days I get paid to draw for a living and I still get a lump in my throat when at work I'm referred to as 'the artist'.
In 2015 a dream came true. My love of cartoons (both watching and drawing) came full circle when I had the opportunity to meet two of my favorite people in the whole world. The Amazing Rob Paulsen and Jess Harnell a.k.a Yakko and Wakko Warner from 'Animaniacs'. I've been fortunate to share my artwork with them and even more so now that after all these years I've actually had several opportunities to work on projects with then directly. I get to draw cartoons for some of my favorite... cartoons!
My younger self would have never believed it.
