Congratulations to the Korra design team members for taking home the Annie Award for Production Design in TV for Book 2 Chapter 10 “A New Spiritual Age”! From left to right in the top photo, skipping Mike and me: Angela Sung (background design), Christine Bian (prop design), William Nanqing Niu (background design), Emily Tetri (background paint), and Frederic Stewart (background paint). And congratulations to the other designers who worked on this special episode: Sylvia Filcak-Blackwolf (color stylist), Christie Tseng (character design), Angela Song Mueller (character design), and Lauren Zurcher (background paint). Every day I am blown away by their talent, dedication, and enthusiasm, so it is nice to see the animation community recognize their work as well.

Congrats to this awesome team!

Happy New Year, everyone! Here are some photos I took of the Korra crew from our various festivities last month, including someone’s birthday, a white elephant gift exchange, and our traditional year-end bowling party––sadly our last one, as we’ll be down to a skeleton crew by December 2014. I am enjoying the company of these great folks between all the work, while it lasts.

Big thanks to the amazing Korra crew!  In that last photo, we’re playing Pac-Man Battle Royale, which instantly became my favorite video game ever.
