Kids cannot follow stories. They don't know what the hell is going on in a cartoon. They like to see funny visual things happening.
The generic Canadian style of illustration is different from the generic American style.
From 20 years of experience hiring artists out of the schools, I know-they get worse every year. They're absolutely ridiculously retarded now.
My style is very strong poses and expressions.
I don t think cartoons are only for kids, but I think kids will love anything as long as it's visually interesting.
Cartoonists are untrained artists, while illustrators are more trained.
There's tons of people with talent; it's the system that's all screwed up.
The only character I ever remember actually creating in a flash of inspiration was George Liquor. God planted that in my head in an instant.
The storyboard department doesn't talk to the layout department, which doesn't talk to the writing department. They're all jealous of each other.
If you're a kid wanting to be a cartoonist today, and you're looking at Family Guy, you don't have to aim very high.
In old movies, the cinematography is a thousand times better than anything today. Writing, a thousand times better.
You buy any book on color theory today, and it's just complete poppycock. Everybody comes out of school painting pink, purple and green. The whole damn cartoon industry has pink purple and green on their mind.
Joe Barbera's s always complaining that he can't get humor into cartoons anymore. Just do it. You've got your money. Why do they let the networks run their lives?
George Liquor is really the richest character I have. I'm amazed there aren't 365 episodes about him on TV already.
My intended audience was everybody. I just want to make cartoons for human beings.
