Iron Giant Art Show

Dan Merisanu, proprietor of Labyrinth Books in Toronto, devotes part of his store space to exhibiting art of various kinds. His latest project is inviting people to contribute art inspired by Brad Bird's The Iron Giant, which was released 10 years ago this month. If you'd like to know more about this exhibit, or perhaps contribute, you can find out the details here. You can see sample artwork and follow the progress of the exhibit as it comes together here.

If you look here you'll see the same character appearing in Bubby and Beezil, Loederer's comic strip.

They're undeniably the same character. Since The Sunshine Makers was financed by Borden's milk, it's possible that Loederer's character could have been brought by the client - possibly from the strip - and Loederer wouldn't have had to work for Van Buren to have designed the character.
