This morning I awoke to some pretty cool news: Geekadelphia had announced that I was nominated for Comic Book Creator of the Year for its 2013 Geek Awards.
I’m nominated with two other great local talents: Jared Axelrod and Christine Larsen.
It is quite the honor to be nominated and that was a heck of a way to start my week. I’m especially honored because the nomination came in large part to the work done for our anti-bullying comic, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. This has been a very special, emotional project and the most important creative work I’ve ever been a part of.
But I also couldn’t do it alone. The nomination comes with deep gratitude for Ray Goldfield, Doug Hahner, Erica Heflin, Marc Lombardi, Glenn Matchett, James O’Callaghan…the editors who work tirelessly behind the scenes, as well as the hundreds of writers and artists who’ve done work for GrayHaven or supported our projects through the years.
