“Talisman” is the theme this week on Illustration Friday. The first thing that came to mind for me was Indiana Jones, and some mystic artifact. My brain then made the leap to Saturday morning, when I was a kid. Nothing was better than getting up early Saturday morning to watch cartoons. Once I was big enough to climb up onto the counters, I began fixing my own bowl of cereal. Every once and a while, if I was lucky, the cereal would have a prize inside of the box. Finding the prize in the box of cereal was a little like finding an ancient treasure. It is the love of those Saturday morning cartoons, that sparked my love of drawing and animation. I fell in love with imagining something inside my head and then drawing it. The best job title in the world, in my opinion, is Imagineer(a term given to the creators at Disney Studios). I still love watching cartoons and animation. I still love cereal too. How about you? Have a favorite cereal, or cartoon from growing up?
