Ich bin Oz, der Gross und Mächtige
Now, I’m not going to claim you shouldn’t complain about a TV show or a book if you want. That’s totally cool — you’re a consumer, and that’s totally your right. This isn’t a blog post about criticism and reviews — just thought I’d head that off now.
No, what I’m really interested in today are the stories behind the creators. One of the more well-known ones is the story of Ian Fleming, the creator of the James Bond character — Fleming himself was a secret agent, and used his own experiences to form the basis of Bond. That kind of stuff is fascinating to me. Dr. Seuss, for example, made U.S. Propaganda posters in WWII.
So, as it’s Friday, and I’m lazy… share some interesting creator stories in the comments! Who wrote or created something you love, and who was that person really?
