a few words about us

Drawing your viewers’ attention is the first step to engaging, entertaining and informing them.  We are a character animation studio that approaches our development like jazz. We specialize in hybrid techniques combining 2D, 3D and other forms of animation and puppetry. Grasshorse has produced work for MTV, Walt Disney Channel, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, LEGO and most recently, 20th Century Fox. Our clients are regional, national and international studios, networks, advertising agencies and new media.

In early years, Grasshorse began as a sole proprietorship with Steve working on shows including Craig McCracken’s The Powerpuff Girls for Cartoon Network, Warner Bros.' Johnny Test, Genndy Tartakovsky’s Star Wars: Clone Wars and Megas XLR. Steve pioneered 2D/3D hybrid animation techniques on The Powerpuff Girls; he was one of the first to mash the aesthetics of 2D animation with 3D animation in broadcast television.
