Character designer, illustrator and animator Shane Glines never anticipated his own success. The Oregon native's career got it's start in 1992 when he sent a letter to Spumco animation studios, along with a few samples of his work, asking for a little advice on where to get the best education and how to then break into the business. The reply he received in essence told him that the best way to go was to ditch the classes and seminars and come on down to Spumco to start working as an intern on the "Ren and Stimpy" show.
That fortuitous offer turned into an animation career that lasted for several years for Glines. He revelled in the creative atmosphere at Spumco, and enjoyed the creative community that worked behind the scenes in the entertainment industry in general. The decision makers at Spumco had been correct; on the job training was honing his skills through the collaborative atmosphere of the studio.
