Annie Nomination #5!

Hey all! I've been nominated for an Annie Award for the 4th year in a row and for my 5th time! (Although I haven't won one yet.) I got real lucky to have guys like Butch Hartman and Bob Boyle teach me about storyboarding and I had one of the best times of my life working on Danny Phantom. Here's the Cold Open to the board I'm nominated for.

eric- Thanks! No you didn't miss the book yet. I should be sending the files to the printer in a few weeks. It'll take about 3 months to print and deliver them so maybe by early April?

puga vida- My wife smelled the same thing but that's cause I was eating Paul Newman's Bean Dip last night.

Beautiful work. I've just really gotten into DP, and am in awe of it, the work from everyone is so amazing.

Joe K. is right: these are great learning tools. You've caused me to raise my personal ability/practice/accomplishment bar a lot higher. Thanks for that!
