This just in from Cartoon Brew:
Legendary animator and CalArts faculty Corny Cole has lost his home and everything in it during the recent fires in Southern California. Corny evacuated before the fire hit and is unharmed, but his home, pets, and all of his artwork, save for what he has in his office at CalArts, are gone.
KTTV has a report with video.
The legendary Corny Cole is one of the great animators -- and characters -- in our business. He has worked in the business for over fifty years and has taught at CalArts for over twenty. It's good to know that he was uninjured, but our hearts go out to him for his devastating loss.
