Welcome to the Ink and Paint Girls podcast where we celebrate women working in animation and explore representation behind the scenes and on the screen.
The "Parenting in Animation" series will be sporadic interviews with parents working in Animation, deep dives into topics as they relate to the industry, as well as Q&As from YOU, our listeners.
We want to have a loving home life with kids, and not worry that our careers will suffer because of it. Let's explore the subject together!
Hosted by Katya Bowser and Cassie Soliday.
Today's guest is Teri Cusumano, art director and background painter extraordinaire! Not only do we talk parenthood with her, but also about her journey into animation. Having over 11 years experience working in the Industry, you can see her work on shows like Final Space, Bunnicula, Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja, The Life and Times of Tim, and most recently is working over at Bento Box. We discuss transparency about your pregnancy with your producers, how to ask for what you need (whether it's to work from home or a room at work to pump), and why it's important to stand up for what you think is right-- lifting others up in your same craft.
