Congrats to Rob Kohr!

Rob Kohr

Earlier this week, I traveled to the Bahamas for the wedding of my pal Rob Kohr (seen above in his self-designed cake topper). Rob is not only a friend, but also the webhost and tech guru for Cartoon Brew. He’s the unsung hero who keeps us up and running, and without his attentive daily management and skillful problem solving, there’s a very good chance you wouldn’t be reading this site right now.

Of course, it’s only fitting that Cartoon Brew’s tech genius would also be an animator. Rob’s day job is at Viacom where he works in their on-air promo department, animating Nick Jr. projects in both Maya and Flash, like this:

But having a full-time job and running a webhosting company isn’t nearly enough for Rob, who gives new meaning to the term workaholic. He also recently completed his first independent animated production, the anime-flavored The Lift, which has screened in nearly fifty festivals and won multiple awards. Take a look:

So here’s three cheers for Rob–for finding a great lady AND for keeping Cartoon Brew pumping!

    Congratulations, Rob Kohr!

    Your film “The Lift” has good animation. I like how the story makes you think on what’s happening and what’s the message.

    Happy Wedding Day!

    Congratulations Rob! All your hard work puts the rest of us slackers to shame :)
