"We're gonna be the Diego Rivera and Frieda Kahlo of animation!"

Above: husband and wife Jorge Gutierrez and Sandra Equihua, with EL TIGRE in the background, in a photo nicked from today's Diversity/Careers article Computer graphics and digital animation: exciting fields for techies by Laurel McKee Ranger.

Animation World Network interviews my lovely and talented friend Jorge Gutierrez, who co-created the hit Nickelodeon show EL TIGRE with his lovely and talented wife, Sandra Equihua. My favorite quote:
"We're gonna be the Diego Rivera and Frieda Kahlo of animation! [laughs] And she kinda went for it, and here we are. ... without the, y'know, cheating and the trains hitting you part."
Hat tip to Andrew Farago, the very fellow who conducted the interview and the Big Man at the Cartoon Art Museum! Thanks, Andrew!
