I watched a lot of cartoons and movies. I draw incessantly and carry a sketchbook everywhere. I work in animation and self-publish my books. There are monsters in the streets, don't wear red. Mad bulls and monsters hate that color. I still watch cartoons.

Animation folk in the neighborhood

My neighborhood to be exact. I love this photo because I couldn't have staged it better if I tried. And the cast, what can I say? The awesome celebs are Lou Romano and Don Shank talking to each other (man, like long lost brothers every day. I mean, they work four paces from each other), leaning into the shot is the awesome Pete Sohn --we can't love this guy enough and an all around talent of note. And a contest of sorts could be made here. Who can name the individual who's head (cut off) is joyfully peering at us from the bottom of the frame. Write in your guesses.

Shank Pile
Lou Romano

What is more curious is where the photo has taken. It does not look like a coffee shop. It looks like a home.

I'd say definitely David Silverman, but do I get bonus points for guessing who's the tall guy in the back? My guess is Pete Docter.

Thanks for playing, folks. You've likely already seen the post revealing our mystery person.

Gettis--Andrew Gordon does have that signature gleeful smile. He's got a great story to tell. I'll show you one day.

Anonymous--Got it right off.

Bro--Nope. He's in the White House.

Amelia--Andrew should know about his future as a D. Silverman double.

Plati--Thanks for such kind words. Angouleme?! I want to go so bad. Maybe some day. Sigh. I'll check out the website.

Anonymous--again a direct hit.

Charles--It is a home, very inciteful. Can't reveal that. Don't have clearance. I've shown too much as it is without permission. I'll be asking today.

Jamie! How're you doing? Working hard on that book, I hope. Just a party to be all Tiki, 'is all.

Regis--You are correct, sir. Bonus points for making out that fuzzy visage as the great Pete Docter.

And thanks for all the posts!

Oh, I got clearance. It's Pete Docter's house. The Tiki room is by the pool, rightfully so. Food, conversation, drinks and more chances to gab with people you already gab with all day. I mean, who else could you have a yak fest with other than your brother's in arms, so to speak.

No one got dunked in the pool.
