My first animation gig was working on Eric Fogel’s The Head at MTV Animation. Eric later created the stop-motion cultural phenomenon, Celebrity Deathmatch, and ensured his place in our collective consciousness.
His personal projects are an ode to the kid drawing lightning bolts and skulls on the back of his notebook. The challenge, and appeal, of this work is that it is both youthful and gruesome. It has a base appeal that celebrates the bit of darkness in all of us. The little bit of weird that we’re afraid to share. Thankfully, Eric has no such fear.
How would you describe you what is it that you do?
I’ve been creating, directing and producing animation professionally for over 20 years.
