“We made an Adventure Time mural!”

May 31st, 2009

Fan Art Mural

Dear Pen,

I am Paula Te. My friends and I live in a dorm at college. We can paint whatever we want on the walls of this dorm. So we decided to paint a mural of a scene from Adventure Time. (We love your animated short. It’s so mathematical.)

Here’s an image, attached. That’s me and Nick (he helped paint Mars). We hope you like it!

We’re looking forward to your new series on CN.


Paula also wanted to credit Phil who painted the green planet to the right and some of earth. — Eric

A word from Pen.

May 17th, 2009

I asked Pen to do an email interview about the show, since we hadn’t heard directly from him in a while. As usual, he came back with something even better.  –Fred

I made this interview for http://www.adventuretime.tv and http://www.frederator.com — Man, I don’t know what I’m sayin.

To follow up on some of these ideas.. what I’m trying to do with Adventure Time is create a cartoon that kids are going to have fond memories of after they grow up… and hopefully will be able to go back into and watch again and appreciate it a new way after they grow up.

I’m tryin to make it timeless - - - like peewee’s play house. With jokes that should be funny for adults and kids. When I was muttering about “real characters” What I mean is… when I was a kid I cared about cartoon characters. I cared about Lisa Simpson when she loved her substitute [Read more…]
