I gots an Emmy!

Somehow I forgot to post about this. I learned a few months ago that the Our State Television episode I illustrated and was interviewed for, #801 “What it was. was Football” won an Emmy® ! I got an e-mail from producer Morgan Potts informing of this and, when I joked with him about mailing me my award, he answered that he would!  I was floored.  Apparently a plaque is mailed to key members of the program while the neat-o statuette goes to the big wigs. I’ll take it.  Yahoooo!

Here’s a LINK to the show

I'm an artist/illustrator residing in a small, North Carolina town. I worked for a few years as a conceptual artist and art director in the computer game industry but set off on my own to freelance. I currently do humorous illustration and cartoons for publications such as MAD Magazine and Highlights for Children.
