Thanks, Dinesh!

The Felix Comic Art Podcast returns for June 2021 with a special guest: Pixar animator and art collector, Andy Beall.

He was then recruited by the Charles Schulz estate to direct the PEANUTS special, HAPPINESS IS A WARM BLANKET, CHARLIE BROWN, as well as write and draw the original comic THE BEAGLE HAS LANDED, CHARLIE BROWN! But the bulk of his career has been at Pixar, where he was worked on countless favorites, starting with THE INCREDIBLES..
