Birthday Wishes, Smashing Compliments And Andreas Deja

Thanks a million to each and everyone for all the lovely birthday wishes, I'll come back to everyone during the next days. CHEERS!!

By the by, as I was going through the birthday wishes, I saw this from fellow Il Giornale animation expert Federico Fiecconi and couldn't resist to adapt the sketch a little to fit the quote:

Federico Fiecconi: "Florian, the closest thing alive to Marc Davis (after Andreas Deja...)"

Florian Satzinger: "Get me Deja!"


  1. Closest thing alive to Marc Davis??...Are you serious??.There is nobody that can get remotely close to Marc's work and I cannot even imagine Andreas would even state anything on the contrary

    1. Oh please, keep a sense of proportion, that was a friend's chummy birthday compliment, with a wink of course, no more.
