Jackie Khones Private Eye, Case Closed!

So, over a year ago I had the opportunity to pitch ten episode ideas to Craig McCracken, creator and director of "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends". Out of those ten ideas he liked two, and out of those two one was actually made into an episode of Foster's. The title of the episode is "Jackie Khones and The Case of the Over Due Library Crook".

When I pitched it to Craig all I said was; "Jackie Khones Private eye, Case Closed" and that was enough to get the ball rolling. I was invited to temporally join the story crew for the episode (I say temp. because my normal job is just drawing) and we sat in the conference room for half a day until the story was fully figured out. Then the amazingly talented Darrick Bachman wrote the script. After several months of hard work from tons of people the show was finally completed. It aired on Cartoon Network March 13th 2008.

I also did some drawing on the episode. The three screen shots below are from the awesome montage/ song about Jackie Khones.



Aaaand if that isn't cool enough, I found a very nice review of the episode on Firefox News (link below). So long story short, if you get a sec check out the review and the episode. I'm not sure when the next air date is but when I find out I will post another note.

Thanks for stopping by,
Joey
