Artist | Student | Film & Animation
United States
Hello. My name is Tim. My favorite cartoons are Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack, while one of my favorite movies is James Cameron's AVATAR. I always wanted to become a filmmaker and animation artist.
I have an idea:


What if I, Timothy R. McKenzie, would combine the adventurous side of my childhood self (i.e., a curious explorer on a quest) with elements of the fantastic dream-worlds of Winsor McCay as in his Little Nemo in Slumberland and Dream of the Rarebit Fiend comic strips as well as the highly stylized cartoon animation [art]work of Genndy Tartakovsky as in his animated TV show Samurai Jack to create something of my own project called “Dreams of the Ancient Wanderer”?

I thought Japanese/Chinese Boys don't wear Komonos however you spell it.

Well, Japanese and Chinese boys do wear their traditional clothes (kimonos for boys of the Japanese kind) in ancient days, and some modern Japanese boys (or sometimes girls) still wore traditional kimonos, though some wore more modern clothes. 

After all, Samurai Jack is a cartoon to you and I, so Jack still wears a kimono even as a child, given the fact that he is a time-displaced warrior prince.

Hey guys, if you want to see Dexter's Lab and Samurai Jack screenshots and fan musings...






Remember, here there be stills or screenshots from Samurai Jack as well as those from Dexter's Laboratory.

Not to mention my fan musings.

And BTW, while you're at it, what do you see on my Tumblr blog, "Timboxreloaded"?

Dexter Odyssey sounds amazing, are you going to Calarts to learn animation?

Hello, if you're interested in making an epic film, I'd recommend reading "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" by Joseph Campbell. Some of the best directors have used it as a guide.

Here's an update for you, soundofspheres. It's official that I finally got the book "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" by Joseph Campbell yesterday on Christmas Morning 2012. Thank you, soundofsphere, for recommending me to read Joseph Campbell's classic 1949 book The Hero with a Thousand Faces, and I'll make sure to use that book as a guide if I am interested in making an epic film like my intended masterpiece (and proposed Dexter's Laboratory reboot) the monumental and colossal 12-part live action/animated epic that is Dexter's Odyssey.

Again, thanks a lot for recommending that influential book by Joseph Campbell to me.

Once again, Thank You!
