Beautiful work. Reeally beautiful work. I love this blog and your portfolio on your site, but whatever happened to Crash Nebula? I saw the intro cartoon on FOP, but wasn't there supposed to be a bigger launch for a series? Did it just not go, or is it still percolating somewhere?

I'm guessing it's crashed itself, since Nick would be stupid not to give you a trillion dollars to stay with it.

Hey Ben,

I worked at Nickelodeon Creative Resource in 2003-04 and I remember getting a hold of a Crash Nebula model packet. At last a real model packet I told my self. God it was such a joy to draw these guys. Nick said Butch had to many things going on so they put it on the shelf. Any way,,,,thanks.

Many Thank Yous to all for the nice comments!

Tom- Crash Nebula started as an F.O.P. episode and at one point was going to be developed into its own series. At the time Butch was heading up Fairly OddParents and Danny Phantom was in its early development. There were rumers that Crash might be made in place of Phantom but it got focus tested and did terrible. Rather then shelve it completely, they still air it as an F.O.P. episode from time to time.

r.dress-That's cool! Glad you liked drawing them even for a short time. My good buddy Steven Silver Co-developed the look of this show with me. Maybe he'll post some of his designs on his blog at some point.
