Mark is one of my favorite animation people. Glad to hear an interview from him.

Fantastic interview!! I love hearing his stories about all of the people in animation he's met. I love hearing him talk about Ralph Bakshi. My favorite part was hearing Mark talk about going to Chouinard before it became a part of CalArts. I wish I could have gone there.

Thank you for putting these interviews up.

Good stuff, Steve. I'm glad you've decided to take this on.

I'm sorry that I couldn't recall the good Dave Spafford's name. He sure threw some great parties and was about the craziest animator I've ever known. He was great at Daffy Duck and Woody Woodpecker, among many other things he's done. I'm starting to forget a lot of things, I need some gingko baloba!
