On What Inspired the Story
Like many kids who grew up in the 80’s I loved my children’s TV.
Shows like Thundercats, He-man, Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles were personal favourites.My background is in animation, so I naturally lean towards projects that have a more filmic quality to them and so I decided I would create my own version.
At Bright we’re always eager to take a peek behind the creative curtain of our artists’ lives. We had the opportunity to chat with über talented Stephan Lomp following the March publication of his author/illustrated Mamasaurus (Chronicle Books). Read on to learn more about the development that went into Mamasaurus, and what Stephan has in store for this beloved dino family!
