PBS KIDS / WORDGIRL
WordGirl is an Emmy Award-winning animated series produced for PBS Kids by Soup2Nuts, the animation division of Scholastic Entertainment. WordGirl is a superhero who fights crime with her awesome sidekick, Captain HuggyFace, while teaching children vocabulary.
I worked on WordGirl for a whopping EIGHT seasons! I began as a background artist on Seasons 1 - 6, illustrating the environments WordGirl, Huggy and their fellow heroes (and villains) found themselves in. I served as art director for Seasons 7 and 8, overseeing an amazing team of background artists and character designers. Working on so many hilarious, incredibly written episodes, I think back on the WordGirl series with the type of nostalgia usually reserved for one's hometown, or a distant and particularly wonderful vacation destination.
