Wow! I came into Nick this morning to happily discover that I received a nomination for the 2011 Animation Awards (Annies) in the "Character Design In a Television Production" category for my work on the T.U.F.F. Puppy episode "Iron Mutt"! I'm incredibly excited and humbled to be a first-time nominee. Thank you to my wife and family, creator Butch Hartman, art director George Goodchild and board artist Brandon Kruse. Best wishes to all my fellow nominees!
