We’re leaving Los Angeles today! We’ve been here for two years and, while we’re moving for Rock Solid Reasons, I’m going to miss a few things very much.
1. Our Friends.
Leslie and I invited over 60 people to our going away party (pictured, photo by Frank Charlton) and could have easily invited more. We love our friends here so much. Everyone we know is cool, individual, funny, and talented. I feel very warm about the whole thing and we’re grateful for the time we got to spend with everyone.
2. Cartoon Network
I’ll be continuing my job from Canada, and that’s great, but I’ll miss being at Cartoon Network proper. It’s been an energizing and fun two years and I’m going to miss seeing the other cartoonists there, going pitches, going to the voice records, and seeing what everyone else is working on. It’s a hive of unbelievably talented and funny people.
3. Los Angeles?
LA was never exactly a fit for us but things won’t be the same without its beautiful movie theatres, amazing restaurants, and Disneyland

"father love dance" video reference for Ocarina
performed by writer/storyboard artist Steve Wolfhard
This was Steve’s last week at the studio. He and Leslie will soon be heading back north to settle in rural Canada. Thankfully, he’ll continue to work on the show remotely.
Bon voyage, y’all.
Look at me go.

Ocarina promo by writer/storyboard artist Steve Wolfhard
premieres Thursday, July 17th at 7/6c.
This is my last week in Los Angeles so instead of making a fresh image to promote ‘Ocarina’ here’s a cut scene that I really like.
'Ocarina' is based on an idea I had fixating on for ages. I think the episode turned out pretty good.
I love the pups!
note: The scene stayed in but the dialog was revised.

Adventure Time Nominated for Emmy
Guess who just got nominated for an Emmy? If you’ve looked over this morning’s list of nominees or read the above “Adventure Time Nominated for Emmy,” you’d know the answer is Adventure Time. The episode up for the statue this year is “Be More,” and the category is Outstanding Short-Format Animated Program.
Congratulations and best of luck next month to Pen, Tom, Steve, Nate, Nick, Kelly, and the entire cast and crew.

Still noodling with Pug Road Trip. Pugs on a road trip.
The tub idea is from Natasha.

I’ve been thinking about an old idea called Pug Road Trip lately and, as an experiment, I decided to re-draw the pugs from memory. The first drawing is from, like, 2011 and the second one is from yesterday.
I think it’s interesting how aesthetic tastes evolve! I’ve been wanting, like, all drawings to be cruder and funnier. At the same time I can totally imagine someone liking those first drawings more.

My wife is so nice that she made me a make-shift website. Its HERE!
It’s only a first pass but it’s the first time in ages that the old Cat Rackham comics and the wedding comic have had a place online.
