I won an EMMY!


OMG! I won an Emmy for character design on Foster's! I'm hanging with some pretty good company as Craig McCracken and Shannon Tindle have also won Emmys in past years for their character designs on the show as well. I got lucky enough to come onto the show for the 5th and 6th seasons after the style had already been established by the likes of Craig, Shannon, Craig Kellman, Lynne Naylor, Shane Prigmore, Pete Oswald, Andy Bialk, and probably a billion others I'm forgetting. Here are some of the designs that got submitted for the show "Mondo Coco" that I won for. (The Yeti got posted already, but he was part of the bunch so here he is again.)

Congratulations, sir!
The designs look wonderful, as always.

I know the flat colour look is a big thing with Foster's, but I like these designs as they are - outlined. I haven't seen the ep, I hope they translated well to the screen.

Pretty sweet trophy. What does one do with an emmy anyway? Do you use it to prop up books, or display it prominently somewhere, or as a fun paperweight? Just askin. ;)
