I don't have enough information to consider him a genius. If he was a genius he wouldn't even need other people, they never do, specially when their personalities makes working with other hard. Instead he'll suck everything from others around him, get fired and blame everyone for it.
>>79174016 He may not do shit now but his work is super influential. I don't know if we'd have the current movement of boarder-driven cartoons on CN if Ren & Stimpy had never existed. Plus no SpongeBob or anything inspired by it.
>>79173749 He made a good cartoon and in the process almost sunk it due to his power trips which he and his fans write off as perfectionism and tried to get Billy West to tank his career. When he got another shot at Ren and Stimpy all those years later it was complete garbage.
more like highly influential artist who hasn't done anything of note in 10+ years.
it's kind of amazing when you look at the roster for the new adventures of mighty mouse, which he ran for a season, bruce tim started out there, andrew stanton, a lot of people who are big driving forces in animation worked for him, and had good things to say about his influence,
but yeah he's reportedly shit to work with on the other end, he's marveled at how bakshi managed to keep execs out of his hair when he worked for him for years, he's just not a guy who can deal with corporate stuff, which is what you have to deal with to get funds to make a show. but he's also to full of himself to work under anyone else.
>>79174786 True but those last four are complete and total garbage and he almost sank the original Ren and Stimpy due to his "perfectionism" and tried to get Billy West to put his entire career on the line just to help him out despite him being a huge asshole to him while he worked on the show. Also that shit about the George Liguor Program being incredibly early flash doesn't excuse it's insanely terrible writing. He made some shorts and shit for different companies but I honestly only saw the Boo Boo Goes Wild and can't say anything else about the others although if I had to guess they aren't great. There's no denying how important his influence was but he's honestly IMO by-and-large a hack with literally one good original cartoon and who keeps trying to push George Liquor after all these damn years.
>>79175100 You can be abrasive and stubborn, but you should probably have the skill to back it up. John K hasn't had that in a long time, as his obsession with his "principles" have caused his actual animation work to deteriorate into a complete mess.
His art and animation is very unique. His cartoons have a good sense of humor and his use of music and settings are fantastic. The guy is truly an artist. If someone would just throw him a bone, I guarantee he'd turn it into gold
plus he made Ren and Stimpy. He deserves much more than a few nerds that know nothing about the craft calling him a hack.
He's responsible for one of my favorite music videos of all time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ib3ERyJFZvM I know a bunch of ex-Spumco people. They all vouch for the fact that he has a lot of good ideas, but his ego gets in the way. No one worth their salt in the industry wants to work for him anymore so he goes after kids fresh out of LCAD (he had a bunch of students doing the Miley Cyrus stuff) If he got his shit together he could probably do fun things but he's too obsessed with his victim complex. Also apparently he creeped on Katie Rice but that's all second hand info. Is she even working right now?
>>79173775 >that sendup of Wally Man he kept trying to do for years
>his desperation to make roxy take off from that shoe commercial
I don't think he's overrated but it's hard to feel bad for him considering how many hot opinions he's got. And that's ironic considering his personal designs are shit too, your pic related. He was trying so hard to go back to something that it hardly made sense to go back to.
>>79175218 That's not even the principal that's destroying him. It's his bizarre obsession with not keeping to a model and making absolutely everything "funny" that's driving him to draw 24 wacky faces a second as the ultimate extension of his goals, which ends up looking like an ungodly jarbled mess of unwatchable shit.
