Interview with Tom Sito

In the latest episode of Art & Story I had the opportunity to pick the brain of one of the legends of animation, Tom Sito. We had a great discussion about--well, let's call it what it was--I had a great time learning as I listened to Tom share his thoughts on visual storytelling.

Tom Sito was a storyboard artist on the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon series and director of some of the later Filmation shows like Bravestarr and She-Ra. For those who don't already know, my work in comics has largely been informed by the storytelling sensibilities of the cartoon shows of the 1980s, so having the chance to talk shop with one of the creative talents of that era was a special thrill for me.
