Wow, its so cool to see our flash "House of 1000 Cats" up there with the other nominees. Of course I clearly don't stand a chance at winning when put against masterpieces such as There She Is and Easy Way Out. Still, the nomination alone is more than enough of an honour.
I have to say that this has filled me with motivation to make incredible flash this year. I want my next big flash project, if nominated, to be something I consider worthy of being judged alongside the other entries. I'm gonna work my ass off to try and make something truly epic (maybe the first episode of LR?)
Anyways, thanks to newgrounds for the nomination, and I have to say its hard for me to narrow that list down to even 5, I have no idea how the panel is going to manage. 2008 was a phenomenal year for flash, and I'm glad to have been a part of it all.
Here's a background I painted in photoshop. I'm experimenting with different background styles for my future flash.
