Untold Tales of Bigfoot Nominated for an NCS Award!
Hey, here's some fantastic news -- Untold Tales of Bigfoot has been nominated for another award! This time it’s National Cartoonists Society 2012 Divisional Award for Best Online Comic (Long-Form). The National Cartoonists Society is the world's largest and most prestigious organization of professional cartoonists. Each year, during the NCS Annual Reuben Awards Weekend, the Society honors the year’s outstanding achievements in all walks of the profession.
Needless to say, I'm thrilled. It's a fantastic honor just to be nominated. And while winning the award would be the cherry on the sundae, I'm up against some pretty stiff competition. One is my friend and fellow-Pittsburgh artist, Pat Lewis and his webcomic Muscles Diablo. The other is Meredith Gran and her wildly popular, long-running strip, Octopus Pie. See? That's a lot of talent right there. Nice to have Untold Tales of Bigfoot included in that group.
Not sure how it'll all end up, but whichever way it goes, I'm already happy to say the nomination has brought more readers to my comic and a lot of nice compliments. If you haven't had a chance to check out the comic, why not head on over to the deep, dark woods of Untold Tales of Bigfoot and say hello. -v
