"UM, WHAT!?"

So, what does THIS:
+ THIS:
Equal?



Apparently THIS:


I just found out I won an Emmy for "Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation" for Character design!!!

Wow, just two weeks after starting @ Cartoon Network I won an Emmy!? Hehe, okay, okay--it was for Maxwell Atoms' awesome UNDERFIST: "Halloween Bash", which I'd done over two years ago, consequently during that heatwave (--as depicted in that previous post of that time). My sweat is literally infused onto those sheets of 12 field animation paper. The heat was so bad I had foresaken any sort of proper drawing table or apparatus and used my soon-to-be-wive's 'hope chest', which was mere inches away from an air conditioner--the closest to cool I could possibly get. This had been a scary time for me: sort of a "no man's land", half-way point lull in my quest/experiment to stay home and do 'permanent' freelance. This sort of makes it that much more affirming and validating towards time well spent. That being said, I'm so happy and proud of the work I put into that incredible, albeit all-but-forgotten animated special/Billy & Mandy spinoff/pilot. It was a real cartoon--in its truest form and so fun to work on. It was extra special because I not only worked arm and arm with my buddy "Uncle" Phil Rynda, but in some cases, worked directly from development sketches which he had done before me. Plus, he more or less got Adam to hire me--so, thanks Phil! I'd share the Emmy with you, but you already got one! ; )
