Emmy-award-winning cartoonist visits kids at Louisiana library


MONROE, LA (10/04/20)– Carver-McDonald Library in Monroe had a very special guest today. Emmy- award-winning cartoonist, Bryon Vaughns, spoke with kids about what a cartoonist does and how they can get involved. Vaughns has animated Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Smurfs, and a Tiny Toon character named Buster the Bunny. He also directed a movie called The Adventure of Brer Rabbit. Kids were able to see some of his artwork and learn to follow their own dreams.

“Oh, are you kidding! I think it’s a wonderful experience to share any knowledge I have in giving them a spark, you know,” said Bryon Vaughns, Emmy-award-winning cartoonish.
