Zach Smith

Howdy! In case you were wondering: I'm a storyboard artist and general maker of cartoons. I grew up in Michigan and Indiana but now live in Southern California with my wife (an elementary school teacher), two wild human kids, and a giant 120lb mastiff. I currently work in development on two of my own shows at Nickelodeon and Nick JR.  In the past I've worked on Pig Goat Banana Cricket, Brickleberry, and created the short, Woodstump!, for Nickelodeon.  When I'm not drawing things for money, my pastimes include but are not limited to: eating fast food alone in my car.
