Annies stuffs.....

With the Annie nominees being announced a few weeks ago, I guess it ok now to show what I submitted for the character design category. Better luck next year :)

These were for the half hour Halloween special titled "The Grave Escape". It was amazingly fun episode to work on. Everyone really went above and beyond to make it something special. If some of you were lucky, you may have it caught it the one time it aired......late ......friday night......after a "Fresh Prince of Bel Air"..........rerun.

come back to canada. I'll give you an annie award. Papier Mache and goldleaf but it'll be special.

These look great buddy. All the best! We should talk soon.

Jeff Brame said...

Love these, who wants a dumb ole' annie anyway. Great stuff!

Chris Battle said...

Sheeeet.... You don't need some dopey Annie Award when you got the respect and admiration of your peers! Respect takes up less shelf space, too. Awesome designs, my friend.

Misa Tsutsui said...

Diggin' the fiery tiger spirit, Steve.

RAWLS said...

Nice designs Slambo!...As always.
The Annie would have been nice, but you can't be too upset with a heading such as -

" For television, Nickelodeon's “El Tigre” leads the pack with four nominations for Best Animated Television Production for Children, and individual nominations for character animation, character design, and music."

4 nominations on a show that was cut short of its potential?... hmmmm. makes ya think.
