The students and staff at BHESA enjoyed a surprise visit from Dan Povenmire, co-creator and illustrator of Phineas and Ferb on Tuesday, August 4, 2015. Mr. Povenmire drew the characters from Phineas and Ferb for students and staff while providing information about his interest in drawing at an early age and his career.

It was interesting to hear Mr. Povenmire explain that he drew his first sketch of Phineas while at a restaurant doodling on the butcher paper that covered the dining table.  He went on to explain that it takes 10 months to complete one show. 

Dan Povenmire is a director, producer, writer, voice actor, and artist. He has worked on SpongeBob SquarePants, Rocko’s Modern Life and other animated television series. Students were delighted to hear him do the voice of Heinz Doofenshmirtz, the villain on Phineas and Ferb.

Mr. Povenmire provided time to answer questions from the students. In addition, he discussed his next project of a new show being produced in 2016.  It was an exciting event and something to be remembered!
