The name Guy Gilchrist is synonymous with The Muppets. He was Jim Henson’s official cartoonist, and he helped develop The Muppet Babies, all starting at the age of 24! On top of that, he has professional drawn Tom & Jerry, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the Looney Tunes. We discuss all of this, as well as how to reverse engineer a drawing, 100 year-old pen tips, his admiration for Jim Henson, and how he got his first job selling drawings out of his step-father’s upholstery shop.
