The online source of all Johnny Castaway since 1996

Around 1992, Shawn Bird was working for Sierra and was asked to design a character that was "weathered but likable" for a new    screen saver to  be called Johnny Castaway.  Shawn has written to say: Johnny was created by a small group of guys headed up by Jeff Tunnell. Jeff started Dynamix and spun off a division called JTP (Jeff Tunnell Productions) and we did JC. The lead designer of the project was Chris Cole. He and Art Director Brian Hahn came up and produced all the gags for the screensaver. Animator Sherry Wheeler made much of amazing animations.
