Andy Suriano: The man, the myth, the Hair

Thalia Lemon | Nov 8, 2022

So one minute you’re concocting space bachelor vom-a-thon comics to escape from under the thumb of the universe's most monopalistic mouse, and the next minute you’re getting rug-pulled while sculpting an extended toy commercial into an artful and hilarious cult-classic.

There’s no denying
Art Ward and Andy Suriano brought a renewed energy and style into this middle-aged franchise, with a frenetic style, vivid characters, and character depth that feels astoundingly 3-Dimensional. We felt blessed to connect online in 2020 to hear them talk about the series production,

And now
Andy Suriano, along with Ant Ward, are making it out to TAAFI in real life to talk turtle, and share the experience of further elevating this troupe of scrappy sewer terrapins into a feature-worthy foursome.

But will we learn the big secret behind this illustrious artist that fans are fighting to find out?  Let’s hope so, because in spite of hours of internet research, I still don’t know how he gets his hair to look like that.

Is it genetics? Is it products? Do you take supplements? Who is your hairstylist, and do they have a waitlist? The fans want to know, Andy.

But will Toronto find out... 🐢

Don't miss their LIVE closing talk @ TAAFI 2022!

TAAFI is a local reunion for global animation.

Our Animation Industry Conference starts Thursday November 10th and runs till Saturday November 12th with both IN-PERSON as well as ONLINE talks, panels and presentations. Thursday night and Friday are online, but Friday night turns to IN-PERSON at a VIP mixer event sponsored by Nelvana. Then all day Saturday is IN-PERSON downtown at the Toronto Reference Library for exclusive in-person only talks followed by a party at the Artful Dodger. 👀 ya there.
