What was your experience like working on The Pagemaster? Did you have any involvement with the animation, or did you film your scenes long before the drawing began?

What has been inspiring you lately?

Love all your work, man. My Dandelion Gum LP is on constant rotation.

Mr. Kirkland, would you please list a few of your favorite animated films? In particular, anything off the beaten path you feel a student of animation should be watching? Kudos on all your amazing work!

I will definitely revisit each of these! I grew up with them, but know I'll appreciate them more as an adult.

I am a comic book artist and have been teaching myself traditional animation. I have been watching Simpsons since it premiered (when I was 3 years old!), and it's been my biggest inspiration as an artist. I still watch the cel-painted Simpsons seasons daily, and am continually awed by their beauty.

Thank you again for elevating animation to new heights.
