Alex Toth has passed away yesterday morning, appropriately enough, drawing at his table.
We've lost one of the greats, but the impact of his work will continue for ages to come, in both animation and illustration. We were very fortunate to have him as long as we did.
Fairly TMI Scotto factoid - I lost my virginity with my first girlfriend while Jonny Quest, a show Toth did both story boards and character design for, was on TV. (Two Episodes back to back: The 'Q' Missile Mystery and Shadow of the Condor, if you must know, dear journal)
Missed out on the Classic Tv at the singing fountain and Wendy's Birthday party due to being on call. I'm free as of 8am Monday Morning, though! Hopefully, I can hang out with Danny and/or Dave then.
My LJ as a graph -
What do the colors mean?
blue: for links (the A tag)
red: for tables (TABLE, TR and TD tags)
green: for the DIV tag
violet: for images (the IMG tag)
yellow: for forms (FORM, INPUT, TEXTAREA, SELECT and OPTION tags)
orange: for linebreaks and blockquotes (BR, P, and BLOCKQUOTE tags)
black: the HTML tag, the root node
gray: all other tags
Sounds like Mandy's having a grand time at the con - talked to her while in the dealer's room... all sorts of nifty loot there (dealer room is probably my fave part of most cons - I suspect that most of the pirate DVD sellers have to be more honest, now with so many portable players available.
Nice collection of OTR resources (something to tune in to while on call...) Zoot and Zombie Astronaut are two longtime faves.

Usurper of Grover's rightful crown, me? The battle cry seems right, but a little long. Hitman name strangely accurate.
I still wonder how you can have a guest star in a movie.
On a bit of a Juice Newton Kick this weekend. - (No, Newt isn't named for her. Or Olvia-n-john. or Wayne.)
Moment of Lyric - Youtube
and I'm a-waiting
on the twelve-oh-five
Hoping it'll take me
just a little farther down the line
you're just a heartache in disguise;
Won't you keep my heart from breaking
if it's only for a very short time
