Career

Page is a graduate of California Institute of the Arts. He created two short films entitled Crater Face and Girl Wallet.[1][2] He then became a writer and storyboard artist and revisionist for Cartoon Network's series Adventure Time and Secret Mountain Fort Awesome.[3]

Page is the creator of the show Clarence, where he also voiced the eponymous character. The idea for the series was conceived by Page, along with creative director Nelson Boles, while they were still students at CalArts. The concept was put into further consideration upon Page landing a job at the studio.[4] The series' pilot episode earned Page a nomination for a Creative Arts Emmy Award at the 65th Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony, hosted on September 15, 2013.[5]

In July 2014, Page was fired from the program. A spokesperson for Cartoon Network confirmed to BuzzFeed that "Skyler Page is no longer an employee at Cartoon Network Studios".[6] Spencer Rothbell, one of the writers on the show, began to voice Clarence for the remainder of the first season.[7]
