Jonathan Rogers left his animation career to pursue other modes of expression, mainly drawing, painting and writing. Born 1937, Toronto, Canada - Canadian citizen, he has worked and lived in the US since 1981. During his career he also lived in England, Israel, Manila and Seoul. He created and produced animated inserts for Sesame St. as well as worked with Disney Studios and MARVEL on Casper, G.I. Joe and My Little Pony until 1992. Billboard Magazine awarded him "Best Computer Animated Music Video" for Atomic Dog. (George Clinton & the Funkadelics) After years of working he figured out that there was only one medium that encompassed the demands of his creative energies in all modes combined, so he came back to animation. He's happy to be back developing new shows with his partner, the incomparable Jimmy Cross.

Jimmy pours his heart out into his work and it shows in every frame. A 20+ year veteran and a student of Cal Arts Institute, Jimmy started his professional animation career at Saban and DIC Entertainment as a development artist helping both animation studios create successful animation series and establishing himself as a talented and diverse artist. From there he moved over to Fox Kids where he further honed his craft, working with several distinguished veteran producers. While at Fox Kids and Warner Bros., James developed and directed his own projects in addition to storyboarding and designing for several established brands. He's worked for many clients including the NFL (Helped in creating the NFL RUSHZONE), McDonald's, Skechers, Olympics, Coleco, Sprout, Disney and ABC Mouse. He is also the creator of the award winning preschool series, IT'S MONKEY TIME! where he produced and directed under his label, Semaj Entertainment. Jimmy is passionate about giving back to his community by speaking to kids and helping young artists find their voice in animation. He's also the father of four with his wonderful wife!
