Annie Poon is an artist and animator living in New York City. She grew up in New Canaan, Connecticut and started cartooning as a kid by illustrating little books in elementary school. She went on to study painting at the School of Visual Arts but eventually returned to her roots by animating her own characters using paper stop-motion. Her cartoons have shown in venues including the Museum of Modern Art, The National Gallery, the Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of Art and Design, the New Museum, and others. They are also popular at film festivals and on TV including the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival, PBS and Nickelodeon.
Puppy first broke onto the scene in 2009 when Fred Flare.com started publishing his weekly escapades. Since then his adventures have been collected into a compendium titled ‘Oh Puppy!’. Puppy also starred in two animations: ‘Oh Puppy’ the rap video, and ‘Puppy’s Super Delicious Valentine’s Day Biscuits’ which was a hit on the film festival scene and sold as a zine at Printed Matter.
