Lynn Interviewed by Gruppeteer Hansen

What’s a “Gruppeteer”, you ask? According to his various online profiles, he’s a young guy from New Hampshire, who hosts a YouTube show called Cartoons VS Cancer, and who “likes wearing pants”.

Gruppeteer Hansen invites people from the cartooning and animation industries to join him for interviews on his YouTube channel (Gruppet Studios); the Cartoons VS Cancer series is a fundraiser for his friend Maddie, who’s fighting Ewing Sarcoma.

He contacted us and asked to speak to Lynn, who agreed — below you can watch their interview, which they conducted via Skype.

We hope you enjoy it!

Making Gift Bows: Lynn’s Video Tutorial

Lynn’s parents, Mervyn and Ursula, owned a jewelry store in Vancouver when Lynn was a kid. Lynn’s mom used to do gift-wrapping in the back of the shop, and she would make her own custom gift bows from scratch, using ribbons.

Lynn’s friends and family appreciate her carrying on the family tradition — you can tell when a present is something Lynn (or her daughter, Katie) have wrapped. Katie’s special talent is gift baskets, but Lynn is the queen of the pom-pom bow. Watch this video tutorial to see how she does it!
