Comments on Style:


As described by his friend and co-worker Bronwen “Bronnie” Barry: “I've been fortunate to have worked with John several times in my career; most recently on King of the Hill. It is of no surprise to me that he's always employed-- he's really one of the very best. I've known him as a fellow key assistant animator, and now as board artist and AD. A truly talented artist, he's always kept his technical skill-sets current. I've observed his patience and generosity in sharing his knowledge with those just learning the paperless boarding process. Wonderful to work with, enormously fun and good natured, John Eddings is a great asset to any project.”
