Another in my series of "I don't have anything I can post so I'm showing stuff I have on the walls of my studio". All are bad photos, so sorry.
This is an original "John K" (we call him "K" because his last name is so hard to get right-"Krisfaluchi"?) of the characters he made famous, REN AND STIMPY. This hangs in our downstairs bathroom, for no real reason. The story behind this one is that John K visited the Florida Disney studio when I was there years ago. Probably around 1995? We were working on the Roger Rabbit short, "Trail Mix Up", I do remember that. At any rate, he wanted to do a behind the scenes tour and he had with him his (then) girlfriend (who's name I can't remember this second) but I had gone to CalArts with her. So, I had an "in". They ended up hanging around my desk for awhile as we talked, so I got geeky and asked him for a drawing. (I think he was still doing the original Ren and Stimpy series at the time.) I remember he had a different way of drawing with not really doing any construction lines first, just started putting down lines. It made me think he had never animated before, but what a good character designer he is. Nice guy.
