Oh Yeah! Joe Bevilacqua & Lorie Kellog.

Joe Bevilacqua is a multi-talented threat; a writer (of radio comedy and the first biography of the legendary voice actor Daws Butler), producer/reporter (for NPR), and voice actor. His wife Lorie Kellogg is no slouch either; she's a graphic designer, writer, and actor. We've all know each other for almost a decade; in fact, Joe did the internet marketing for the original shorts from Oh Yeah! Cartoons.

Which is why we were thrilled when they came in to show us their ideas for the 4th season of Oh Yeah!. Joe's not a professional artist, but he worked hard to show us his cartoons in the storyboard form we prefer. Big Baby Bunion is the first of three we took a look at.

Thanks to Joe for his kind permission to show you one of his storyboard pages.

Oh Yeah! Raul Aguirre & Bill Ho.

Raul Aguirre and Bill Ho are two talented animation artists with a short called Little Letty. It features an homage to the big nose comedy of the 50s that many of us are so fond of, with a story that might be a little adult for our Nickelodeon audience. But one never knows; we'll see what Raul and Bill have in store for Little Letty.

Thanks to Raul and Bill for permission to show their artwork.

How to draw Wubby.

If you haven't had a chance to check out the Wubblog lately, you're missing a bet. Bob Boyle's got the only world class animated show with it's own week-by-week production blog, before the show's on the air (the only one that I know of, that is). A great insight into the 'voice' of a show's creator. We're proud to part of Bob's production (along with our executive producer/partner Susan Miller).

Diane Kredensor & Dana Galin. Oh Yeah!

We're working with Diane Kredensor and Dana Galin on a book for our pre-school book imprint with Bolder Books for Boys & Girls and Random House. And today they showed us at Oh Yeah! Cartoons their charming and fun cartoon, Call Me Bessie!

Thanks to Diane and Dana for kind permission to show a storyboard frame from their cartoon.

Oh Yeah! David Feiss & Michael Fry.

David Feiss created, directed, and produced Cow & Chicken with us over at Hanna-Barbera Cartoons (for our original shorts project, What A Cartoon!) and the Cartoon Network. Michael Fry creates the popular strip Over the Hedge (with T. Lewis). Together they've come to Oh Yeah! Cartoons with the very funny Teddy the Turkey.

Thank you to David & Michael for kind permission to post artwork from their cartoon.
