A cartoon hero of mine, Gene Deitch, posted up one of my drawings I mailed him of one of his coolest characters: Terr’ble Thompson, precursor to Deitch’s other cool TT: Tom Terrific! Says Gene: "An excitable fan with an exotic name, Jeaux Janovsky, sent me his special interpretation of my Tom Terrific. I love it!"

Thanks for posting Gene! Delighted!

I had met Gene a few years back at a screening tribute hosted by Jerry Beck in 2010 at Cinefamily. Here’s a pic from that night. Sidenote: Jerry posted up my sketch notes from that night on Cartoon Brew too if you’d like to take a gander: http://www.cartoonbrew.com/events/gene-deitch-screening-followup-25101.html
