Cartoon Network Enrolls in Class of 3000
Joe Strike chats with Tom Lynch about collaborating with André “3000” Benjamin on Cartoon Network’s new animated series, Class of 3000.
"...Lynch and Benjamin’s greatest coup may have been lining up an all-star roster of “guest art directors” from both within and without the animation world. Each episode features a music video sequence with its own unique look, set to an original André 3000 tune. Talent on the order of Ren & Stimpy’s John Kricfalusi, comics artist and illustrator Bill Sienkiewicz, cartoonist Kyle Baker and Aeon Flux creator Peter Chung will be overseeing segments that Benjamin compares to “mini-Fantasias” within each episode."

"...every episode will feature an original Benjamin composition and an accompanying music video, created under the watchful eye of "guest art directors" including John Kricfalusi ("Ren and Stimpy") and celebrated comics artists Bill Sienkiewicz and Kyle Baker."
The brilliant Overton Loyd was also a guest art director -Liz
