Super sharp ink lines! Great characters. I've only seensnippets of Fosters here and there while my 4 year old intently watches. She is transfixed by the show. So you've got to be doing something right!

Amazing designs and great shapes. Especially liking the Mario and Luigi glass guys.

I never post here, but I am subscribed through RSS feeds and every time you upload something all I think about is the strength of your character design skills.

I will be animating a short soon and am struggling adapting the designs for animation. I wish I had a quarter of your talent...

eric- yah, I confess, although I'm probably not that tall.

Mike- Thanks so much, although I've really only been envolved in 4 shows that have aired so far. I took over as the character designer for the 5th season, well after the show had been built into what it is today. Craig McCracken himself designs alot of the main characters, while Craig Kellman, Lauren Faust, Andy Bialk, Pete Oswald, Shannon Tindle, Shane Prigmore, and lots more people who I can't recall at the moment, (sorry), did design work on the show before me.

Thanks Joe and Jorge. What's an RSS feed?

I guess these are good if you like solid appealing drawings. Who am I kidding they are awesome as always. Can't you draw something terrible for once? Maybe you could do some drawing with your feet.
