Corny Gets Aid

Tina Price of the Creative Talent Network went to Cal Arts on Tuesday and gave Corny Cole a check on behalf of the animation community. Cole, a veteran animator and educator, lost his home and possessions in a fire last month. CTN’s online fundraiser raised $12,168 thanks to the donations of his many colleagues, fans and students (and quite a few Cartoon Brew readers). Photos of Corny receiving the funds are posted here.

Our sincere best wishes to Corny Cole!

    That man is amazing. And he should be treated that way.

    What a relief. There is nothing to stop people from making further contrinbutions to Mr. Cole, I’m sure. Thanks for posting this.

    I was fortunate enough to be in his class when they brought him his check. It was very touching. Hehe… Corny made jokes that he would take the money and flee to Mexico.

    Tell Corny I have copies of some of his old (political) artwork he had given me 20 years ago, and I would be happy to hand them off to him if he would like!!! (Also, a very funny original caricature of hime talking “surfing”, by the equally funny Alfred Gimeno!!!

    Corny,

    I somehow knew you’d never give me that original drawing of me as Don Quixote…
    Anyway, I was glad to bring you some cd’s and some art books after that horrible fire, going to miss the integrity of you my friend…
