About Sky Island

When the founders of Sky Island Productions, LLC met in 1997, it was a splash. Literally! They met whitewater kayaking on the confluence of the Salmon and Kalamath Rivers. Here they discovered that their life goals were also a confluence of sorts and later formed the CHEROKEE, IOWA based animation company, Sky Island Productions, LLC.

Sky Island, The Cartoon

Sky Island Productions. LLC is named after the team's first ever collaboration, Sky Island, a grownup cartoon series for television. Login below to see parts of the animated pilot for TV.

The Founders’ Biographies

Neal Guthrie

Neal Guthrie

Excelling in the Sciences and Graphic Design, Neal realized that a standard Art Degree was not enough education for him, so he designed his own major which combined environmental science and graphic design. He graduated from Humboldt State University, in Northern California, in 2001, with a Bachelor of Science entitled Natural Science Graphic Communications. Neal currently resides on the Big Island of Hawai’i where he enjoys snorkling, surfing and permaculture gardening.

Abby Grundman

Abby Grundman

Abby took the advice of one of her professors at the University of Iowa very seriously when told that before one begins a career in writing, one must live life. That was the permission she needed to abandon her studies, for a time, and go skiing and kayaking and sailng and rock climbing and whitewater rafting and... let’s just say she lived enough for her entire graduating class. Returning to U of I she graduated with honors waving a Liberal Studies Degree that emphasized writing, political science and natural science. She has worked on freelance projects ever since.
