Keith Knight, famed cartoonist (K Chronicles, (Th)Ink, The Knight Life) and entertainer extraordinaire, has joined the cast of Revengeance as Slim, the sour old manager of the EZ-Fence pawn shop in Long Beach, CA. Knight adds; "The best cartooning evokes animation....the best animation always really looks funny." Knight joins Matthew and Ruby Modine, Dave Foley, fellow cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz, and comedian Kristina Wong (along with Jim Lujan) as voice talent for the 2016 feature animated film.
This is Bill Plympton's line art for a character named Luis Escobar. He's a fugitive that we get to meet at the beginning of Revengeance. Rod Rosse has the distinct pleasure of trying to capture this sweaty, hairy, 300 lb behemoth of a man. Trivia fact: Luis Escobar was named after a very nice Luis Escobar, who is NOT a fugitive from the law nor is he 300 lbs hairy or sweaty. The real Luis Escobar works on the Simpson's TV show and is an amazing artist. Jim Lujan decided to name this character after his friend, Luis, because of the total contrast in personality.
