Congratulations to Dean Haspiel

The Daily Planet would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr. Dean Haspiel, cartoonist extraordinaire and overall swell fella, on his Emmy nomination in the category of Outstanding Main Title Design for his work on Bored to Death, airing on HBO.

Dean-o, listed as illustrator/artist of the sequence, shares the nomination with its director Tom Barham, lead animator Marci Ichimura, and compositor Mark Rubbo under Dakota Pictures, 3 Arts Entertainment /Fair Harbor Productions.  You can see a full listing of  the work they’re up against on The Emmys’ official site.

If you’re interested in Dean’s comic work, I highly recommend The Alcoholic (a graphic novel collaboration with B2D‘s writer/creator Jonathan Ames), and The Quitter (written by Harvey Pekar of American Splendor fame).
