    “That looks nothing like me! REDO!”

  • Happy Birthday Sir! A great fan of your work.

  • Look! It’s John Lasseter and his sequel!

  • I met Mr. Lasseter briefly many a year ago when the illustrator Lane Smith brought him into a store where I worked. He was kind, engaging and clearly very passionate about his work. We spoke for all of a few minutes before he started glowing about the project he was working on that turned out to be “Finding Nemo.” It was clearly a memorable conversation for me.

    Happy Birthday, Mr. Lasseter. Enjoy a big bowl of cereal on me.
