The Striking Visual Universe --- and Limitless Creative Imagination --- of Artist William Joyce

Jun 9, 2014

Our guest on ST today is William Joyce, the well-known children's book author and illustrator, veteran New Yorker magazine cover artist, and all-around creative guru. Joyce's many picture books include "George Shrinks," "Dinosaur Bob," and "Santa Calls" --- and he won three Emmy Awards for his "Rolie Polie Olie" animated TV series. Joyce also developed character concepts for "Toy Story" and "A Bug's Life" --- and his own very popular animated films include "Robots" and "Meet the Robinsons." He talks with us his newest picture book --- and the apps that go with it --- on this edition of our program. Said book is a Fritz Lang-inspired "how the alphabet was created" narrative entitled "The Numberlys." Joyce also speaks about the highly successful Shreveport-based media company that he founded about five years ago, Moonbot Studios.
