Mike Judge, creator of Beavis and Butthead, King of the Hill, Office Space, and Idiocracy, visited the University of Texas tonight for an RTF “Master Class” with John Pierson. I told John I was a huge fan, and he was nice enough to invite me. Of course, I brought my sketchbook.
Note: if you want to cartoon someone, don’t sit front row. Distance = better abstraction.
Mike lives right here in Austin, Texas, and came off as a really smart, down-to-earth and unpretentious guy. He was even nice enough to make a Sharpie doodle of Butthead in my sketchbook!
Last night there was a party in town to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Office Space (I missed it, but heard it was great.)
You can read some good quotes and watch some of my favorite clips by him over on my tumblelog.
