Picture this: quite possibly the most important street photographer of the 20th century was a 1950s children’s nanny who kept herself to herself and never showed a single one of her photographs to anyone. Decades later in 2007, a Chicago real estate agent and historical hobbyist, John Maloof purchased a box of never-seen, never-developed film negatives of an unknown ‘amateur’ photographer for $380 at his local auction house. John began developing his new collection of photographs, some 100,000 negatives in total, that had been abandoned in a storage locker in Chicago before they ended up at the auction house. It became clear these were no ordinary street snaps of 1950s & 60s Chicago and New York and so John embarked on a journey to find out who was behind the photographs and soon discovered her name: Vivien Maier. Since then, the work of this incredibly talented and mysteriously private woman has rocked the art world, receiving international mainstream media attention alongside exhibitions all over the world including London, New York, Los Angeles, Chiago, Hamburg and Oslo.

Here are all of the keys I painted for the Cookie Cat sequence in Gem Glow! I made them as animated GIFs so the overseas studios would know how to treat the moving backgrounds. Check out these really cool early designs for Cookie Cat on Jeff Liu’s Blog! Cookie Cat was masterfully colored by Tiffany Ford who made the brilliant (and delicious) decision to make him two-flavored. I don’t think there has ever been a more delicious prop created for an animated TV show. Cookie Cat’s final design is thanks to Angie Wang! And this sequence was boarded by Joe Johnston.
