Lenord is not only an extremely talented animator/storyboard artist/director/producer but he has tirelessly helped many people get into the industry, including myself! I never get tired of hearing his booming voice call out,”Hey, big daddy!”
Totally agree… Lenord is an amazing talent! One of the things I remember the best about him BESIDES the “Big Daddy” thing was his draftsmanship abilities. No one could draw a woman better than Lenord! He’d draw a lady so fluid and sexy you actually wished she existed so you could ask her out! Fantastic talent!
