THE SIMPSONS


Season 22:  Christmas Special, "the Fight Before Christmas" showed a Springfield blanketed in snow.  Marge goes to war,  Bart gets whisked away to the North Pole via the Polar Express and the Simpsons are visited by Martha Stewart.  I particularly enjoyed working on this episode.

Dial "N" for Nerder:  Requirement - Make Springfield National Park spectacular!  I worked closely with both Design and Color Departments, with the approval of Show Director Bob Anderson on this Film Noir epic.  Amongst several Simpsons firsts, we featured Cumulus Nimbus clouds in a Simpsons episode along with more realistic background and color treatment throughout.
