Jim Reardon was Supervising Director on the Simpsons before he left to PIXAR to do the screenplay with Andrew Stanton for Disney's
Wall-E (Nominated for Academy Award® for Best Original Screenplay) feature film. It was a drawing that I saw at his desk back in the late 90's that inspired me to draw in blue ball point pen for the show. Seems like a little thing,... but I found out that people were selling and buying my pen drawings at San Diego Comic Con for yrs without Fox permission. How they got it is a mystery,..it's illegal,.. but also a compliment too?
