penn ward

Now that season 2 has aired I will post some of the work we did.
One of my favorite worlds from season 1 was “cereal world” for 2 reasons: I love Jay Ward, and some of the first professional work I ever did was on cereal characters like Trix Rabbit, Lucky Charms, etc…
Most of the time I didn’t have the luxury of taking poses this far in terms of completion but this one was so specific to cereal characters that I really felt I needed to put more attention in to these. They ended up being some of my favorite special poses from this episode.


Remember that Penn Ward interview where he said he was obsessed with The Simpsons growing up as a kid? And that his mom brought him to meet the creator of The Simpsons and he gave him some advice on how to get into animation?

Also remember when Pen said The Simpsons opening is what inspired the Adventure Time opening sequence???!!!

Part 2 here.

alright, so, basically, at supanova on the weekend, hynden walch, who does the voice of princess bubblegum got asked about bubbline. she revealed that she had asked penn ward about it too, and this was the answer:

marceline has a peter pan complex, and therefore has always befriended kids, and that’s why she likes finn so much.

so, back when PB was still a young girl, she became friends with marceline. they grew super close, and hynden described marceline as PB’s ‘only friend.’ but then PB grew up, and had to start ruling the candy kingdom.

and so marceline left, leaving PB heartbroken.

basically, that was the gist of what hynden said - whether or not something happened after these events and before what was missing, i’m not sure. but that’s their history as we know it, and, as far as i know, as hynden knows it.


Howdy, new followers! Thanks for jumping on board! Maybe now is a good time to re-post this old short I made, for those of you who missed it. It features the voices of Jackie Buscarino (Susan Strong), Thurop Van Orman (Flapjack), Penn Ward (creator of Adventure Time), Justin Roiland (Lemongrab) and Eric Bauza (Lord Stingray from Superjail plus much more… you will be hearing Eric’s voice elsewhere soon, but I won’t say where). It also features the wonderful Abed Gheith, of Channel 101 fame. It has a couple bad words in it, kids, so don’t say I didn’t warn you.
