Untold Tales of Bigfoot Nominated for Best Webcomic of 2012!
Well, this was a really nice way to start the year. Apparently, Untold Tales of Bigfoot made the short list of the Cartoonist Studio Prize for best webcomic of 2012. The award is a collaboration between Slate and the Center for Cartoon Studies. It came as a huge surprise to me since I hadn’t entered UTOB in any sort of competition. There are just ten webcomics on the list and winners will be announced March 1, 2013. I don’t know if Bigfoot and Scout will get any further in the competition, but all three of us are very honored to be considered, proud to be on the list with so many talented creators and thankful to whoever thought we were good enough to put us up for nomination.
That said, if you're not already following the story, this would be a great time for you to jump in and start reading Untold Tales of Bigfoot. Even if we don't win the big prize, I promise to keep delivering pages filled with lovably cute characters dealing with heartbreaking loss and mysterious adventure. -v
