Rolling Stone has posted a fascinating profile of Pendleton Ward, creator of the hit animated television series Adventure Time. The profile, written by Neil Strauss, covers Ward’s tenure as creator of the show and why he ultimately decided to step down from the major responsibility.

He says this not with sadness or frustration, but with relief. “For me, having quality of life outweighed the need to control this project and make it great all the time.” So he stepped down from running Adventure Time to become simply one of the show’s writers and storyboard artists.
