Jef Lippiatt

Jef Lippiatt Owner at Startup Chucktown

It would be too challenging for me to pick just one so here is my list:

  • Jim Henson (Muppets, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, etc.)
  • Walt Disney (7 plane camera, theme parks, cartoons and movies)
  • Dr. Seuss (political cartoons, advertisements, children's books, animated shorts)
  • Chuck Jones (Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote, Pepe le Pew, Marvin Martian, animated Tom & Jerry and helped animated Dr. Seuss shorts)
  • Tex Avery (Bugs Bunny, Daffy Ducky, Porky Pig and Droopy)

Going a bit further back

  • Benjamin Franklin
  • Voltaire
  • Leonardo Da Vinci

I know it is quite a weird mix of people, and many of their were illustrators / animators. However, I feel like the best way to create the future is to spend time in the unknown (imagination) and those people had it in spades.
