I met Lou when I was starting out in animation in New York in the 1970s and we both worked at Nelvana in Toronto the early 1980s. He was a great artist, a great guy and he's gone too soon. Jerry Beck has details. Tom Sito has written a remembrance at FLIP.
I've worked as an animator, writer, producer and director in TV animation for 29 years. I created the cgi series Monster By Mistake.
I hold a Masters degree from York University in Cinema and Media Studies and am currently teaching animation at Sheridan College.
