A Cartoon Kingdom
Artist: Sam Grinberg
Sponsor: Warner Brothers Entertainment
Bio: “A Cartoon Kingdom” illustrates a fantastical dream like land where iconic animation studios are castles; a magician holds a magic pencil, his little penguins help carry ink, and friendly owls carry animation paper from kingdom to kingdom. This image holds easter eggs and homages to all the studios Sam admired growing up; Disney, Nickelodeon, and Warner Bros.
What’s special to him about Burbank is how many talented artists work and live in this one city. He feels the animation and art community that resides in Burbank is a wonderful group of people and he’s happy to celebrate the community by illustrating this fantastical love letter. His hope is for those who see this piece to get joy from it and hopefully inspire the next generation of artists, as he understands that a strong image can resonate with a person for a lifetime.
