Tall Tale Radio by Tom Racine

Episode Description

Welcome to Part 1 of my talk with John Sanford, artist and writer of "Chippy and Loopus," "K and J," and Dreamworks Animation Director, currently knee deep in season 2 of "Dragons: Riders of Berk." "Chippy and Loopus" has a long history and rabid following out there in the webcomics world, with people loving the antics of the angry, foul-mouthed Chippy, and his dull witted but loyal friend "Loopus." John put "Chippy" on hold for some time, but has re-tooled it and is about to reboot! Find out why! Also in this episode, we start with an interview with the great Jonathan Lemon of "Rabbits Against Magic." Lemon recently found out he's been nominated for a National Cartoonists Society award for Best Online Comic - Short Form. He's been producing many an excellent "Lemon List" for my show for some time, and is a good friend, so I couldn't resist talking to him about his nomination and how it came about!

    I hope you’ll check out Chippy and Loopus, too! John is an amazing artist and student of cartooning in general. And always great for a good comment or a truthful off-the-cuff discussion.

    Why isn’t Chippy and Lopus on GoComics?

    When Chippy first ran, it was rather “adult” in nature an language…John has re-tooled it some to reach a broader audience. Take a listen to the interview, or look on www.talltaleradio.com for some of the older ones with John, talking about language, comics and animation!

    This strip has the feel of a classic. Great unique characters, wonderful spontaneous art and clever interesting writing. How does he fit it in with producing animation shows? Great idea to split the shows for people to listen easier. Smart move. Plus makes you want to come back to hear the rest.
