PEPPER ANN CHARACTER DESIGN

You
wanna get
a lil 
old school,
with me?

Like 
PEPPER ANN
kinda
old school?

Sure ya do!
So let's go!

First,
for those not up on
ancient
Mr. Warburton
trivia,
I was the lead character designer on
Disney's Pepper Ann.
And it was
FUN!

The show was produced in 
Los Angeles,
but I was in
New York City.
So they'd send me a script,
and a design list like this:
And then I'd get drawin'!

This episode,
THE MERRY LIVES OF PEPPER ANN
was based at a 
Renaissance Fair
so it was a HEAVY show.
Lots of characters in costume.
Here's  a samplin'
of what i done
circa 1998:













After I was done,
I'd fax my drawings to
LA.
Back then,
fax machines used those 
curly rolls of crappy fax paper.
There's be lines and shmutz all over the faxes
and the poor production assistants had
to use white out to clean them up.

Funny coincidence?
One of those production assistants was
Darren Clark,
who is now
our star 
technical director 
on
Fish Hooks!


Good times!

If I hadn't read it, I would have sworn they were from KND!

Hi! I'm a HUGE fan of PA and I read somewhere that there are rumors of a Pepper Ann episode airing this year in October just in time for Halloween. Seeing as you worked with the series, I was wondering if you could shed some truth into this. Thanks so much.
