I&PG-081, Brooklyn Lee, Animator and Character Designer

Welcome to the Ink and Paint Girls podcast- a look at animation through the women who make it!

Hosted by Cassie Soliday.

---

This week is all about the animators of the inspiring documentary about rapper/producer/Ph.D. candidate Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo, also known as Sammus, which is currently crowdfunding on Indiegogo! With 12 minutes of hand-drawn animation, I just had to have these animators on the show.

Today's guest is Brooklyn Lee, animator and character designer!

Brooklyn discusses how she made a sketchbook her safe haven to be herself and explore her feelings, how she left retail to find a day job that allowed her mind space to create, and how she creates with her little sister in mind!

I&PG-080, Shammah McVay, Storyboard Artist, Animator, and Associate Producer

Welcome to the Ink and Paint Girls podcast- a look at animation through the women who make it!

Hosted by Cassie Soliday.

This week is all about the animators of the inspiring documentary about rapper/producer/Ph.D. candidate Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo, also known as Sammus, which is currently crowdfunding on Indiegogo! With 12 minutes of hand-drawn animation, I just had to have these animators on the show.

Today's guest is Shammah McCoy, storyboard artist, animator, and associate producer!

Shammah discusses the animation process for the documentary, her longing to see herself represented in the media when she was growing up and how it fuels what she creates today, as well as how she learned to be kinder to herself because she is not an art-making machine!

I&PG- 076, Teri Hendrich Cusumano, Color Supervisor

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, color supervisor 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.

Visual Development Artist who has worked in TV and Feature animation at places like Disney, Dreamworks, Nickelodeon, Duncan, as well as the kids book series “Winter House”.
