Marlo MeekinsMarlo MeekinsMarlo Meekins is an award winning caricaturist whose masterful painting techniques boast a sophisticated color palette. Viewers are initially drawn in by the comforting beauty of warm tones, slender figures, soft and furry rendering, and caricatured tongue-in-cheekness, then they're challenged by their circumstances, and finally transported to the artist's final intent- an unknown planet where beings articulate from a suppressed space of frankness about the internal state of emotion- our relationships with ourselves and each other. You can view some of Marlo's work on her blog,, and she can be contacted at

Danny YoungDanny YoungDanny Young: A very sympathetic person once told me, "You have the perfect body for podcasting." And while I don't like to boast, the seat of my chair has almost completely taken on the shape of me. I'm always cruising the internets for savvy cartoon info and I'm ecstatic to be here co-hosting the fruits of my labor with you, and sharing in the wealth of animation knowledge there is to find. I sincerely hope that we all can become better artists because of it.

Michael WoodsideMichael WoodsideMichael Woodside: I'm a relatively new Californian, having recently moved from Central Florida. After volunteering at the ASIFA-Hollywood Archive, I realized pretty quickly that I basically knew a fraction of what was to be known about the world of animation. This podcast is a means for me to uncover these topics and to share them with people like you. So stick around, because we are gonna un-dumb ourselves at an alarming rate!
