Disney 2

In 2001, armed with my creator owned comic Big Baddy Danger in hand, I walked into Disney Studios. Not only did the pitch go well, but shortly after I was hired to lead design on Disney’s animated series the Emperor’s New Groove and Nikki Tikki Tavi, reimagining and retooling the characters for a new audience. It was an amazing experience, being able to add my personal edge to the Disney brand.

Adam was great pitching his comic Big Daddy Danger that day in my office. I remember saying, this guy understands how to tell a story. The characters and the art of Big Daddy Danger had very broad appeal. I liked it, and I liked Adam. And that’s why Disney ultimately purchased the property.
