You know who is  my favorite animator in the whole wide world is, don’t you?

Why of course,  it’s Genndy Tartakovsky, the US-based, Russian-born animator and creator of my favorite TV shows, namely Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack, as the original (2D animated, not CGI) Star Wars: Clone Wars.

I love the incredible work of Genndy Tartakovsky, of course! Genndy knows silence and how to use it to full advantage, and he even got to when it’s funny or when it’s not funny.

My all-time favorite show, Dexter’s Laboratory, is hilariously amazing, while Samurai Jack is just plain beautiful and hits every beat and is up there with the work of Hayao Miyazaki and his Studio Ghibli crew.

And most recently he even do the wonderful 2D animations that opens the average but fun vampire movie, Priest in 3D:

He is currently working at the Animation arm of Sony Pictures Entertainment, toiling, along with comedian Adam Sandler, on a 3D computer generated feature film by the name of Hotel Transylvania, starring those famous movie monsters, Dracula, Frankenstein, and Wolfman.

So since I was inspired and influenced by the works of Genndy Tartakovsky, what if, in the future, I shall someday make a monumental epic series of dialogues and interviews with Genndy Tartakovsky himself (just like when Francois Truffaut interviews Alfred Hitchcock in the 1960’s), all of which shall comprise a definitive and classic study of Genndy Tartakovsky and especially every single one of his works even in full complete detail?

What if such all the interviews and dialogues between me and Genndy Tartakovsky should be published in a lavishly illustrated tome of a book (complete with color plates and photos and black and white photos and illustrations) which shall be a beautiful piece of book making and production at its finest, bringing to mind the illustrated gift books of older days like this 1911 Scribner edition of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island with illustrated paintings by N.C. Wyeth?

What if “GENNDY: A Definitive Study of Genndy Tartakovsky by Timothy McKenzie” shall begin with his birth and childhood, and shall also systematically touch on every single one of Genndy Tartakovsky’s works so far, including Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack, even in full complete detail?

What if, along with getting complete insight into the production of every single episode or so from Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack and even other works by Genndy Tartakovsky, including the Ego Trip TV special and the Emmy award-winning 2-part Samurai Jack episode, Birth of Evil, readers shall get a hearty dose of even the signatures of Genndy Tartakovsky’s works and talent, as well as everything else, including specific characters from his works, etc., even in full complete detail?

And what if  comprehensive and informative as it is, my epic series of dialogues and interviews with Genndy Tartakovsky, known simply as “GENNDY“, would not just be a one-sided question and answer session about everything from animation to creativity, but rather also a dialogue between two people, one  a US-based, Russian-born animator behind such awesome cartoon classics as Dexter’s Lab and Samurai Jack, the other, his admirer and fan of his works like Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack who should talk with even intelligence and humor about all aspects of life and everything?

Even so, would you like to include such an illustrated gift book edition of  my series of dialogues and interviews with Genndy Tartakovsky, the creator of Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack, as part of your personal home library or something like that?
