02 Lisa at the Lathe

Lisa Crafts is an independent artist and animator who over 20 animated inserts for Sesame Street between 1991 and 2000.[1] Caleb Sampson wrote the scores and songs for many of her pieces.

Crafts reflected on her work on Sesame Street in a 2011 interview with fellow Sesame contributor, Michael Sporn:

We were so fortunate to have the gifted Arlene Sherman as our producer. She allowed us to flourish as artists and to write our own stories and songs, and use our own composers, voice actors, and musicians. Near the end of our time there, I told her that I was transitioning to working digitally, and hoped I could make a new piece in that style. She came to the studio to see what I was working on and gave me the go-ahead to make my first digital piece. I sometimes wonder how it would have impacted my explorations in that direction if she had wanted me to keep drawing.
