Mad About Cartoons

Bill Wray is trying to make the transition fine art but is known as a cartoonist, a background painter/ Art director and sometimes animation director. This will be the place he post his ocasional animation and cartooning work and also be a place to bitch or wax sentimentally about cartoons in general. It’s been a love and hate relationship for many years and the long journey may not be quite over.

More Samurai Jack

Since I didn't ask permission from Cartoon Network to post the SJ partings, the least I can do is promote the new DVD. Scott also sent along a few more of his BG's. Enjoy--

More dynamite stuff! Thanks for sharing these, Scott and Bill. Looks like Scott did very well to take a page from your book for that second one from the bottom, perhaps. Awesome awesome.

The Backgrounds are what first drew me to watch Samurai Jack...just revisited the series and I'm still blown away. I'm luck enough to own a couple of SJ BGs...just don't know if they're by you or Scott.
