Based on a real guy my wife and I saw standing on a Burbank street corner wearing a bright red zip-up sweatshirt, matching jeans, brown socks, brown shoes, and a Santa hat...while taking drags on a cigarette.
I've been a character designer at Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank, CA for more than six years. I designed characters for season 1 of Tak and the Power of Juju, seasons 6-8 of The Fairly OddParents and seasons 1-3 of T.U.F.F. Puppy. I have also contributed character designs for The Penguins of Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, Big Time Rush and Robot & Monster. Last year, I received an Animation Award nomination for my character design work on the T.U.F.F. Puppy episode "Iron Mutt". Please visit my online gallery at MikeDougherty.net and my Flickr page.
