Rebecca Sugar’s “Steven Universe” premieres tonite!


SVA Animation BFA grad Rebecca Sugar has already made a name for herself as a writer/animator on the hit series “Adventure Time“, but she’s poised to make history with her new show, debuting on Comedy Central tonight. Welcome “Steven Universe” to the world!
On the eve of her debut as show creator, Sugar had this advice for other developing artists: >>“Don’t wait to get permission, and don’t worry about it not being good,” says Sugar, her voice gathering with conviction. “ . . . Make it as good as you can and keep moving on. Don’t be afraid to make stuff now. You have to start immediately.”<<
