Network Awesome: Finding Little Nemo

My first original article for Network Awesome went to press this past Monday, discussing the life and works of Winsor McCay in relation to the feature film Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland.
The stereotype of the great artist is one who goes unappreciated in his or her own day, only to have their considerable talents and innovation recognized in retrospect. Unlike poets, painters and musicians, those who revolutionized the art forms of illustration and animation frequently remain unknown. Winsor McCay is just such a name, his work understood only by a handful of genuine appreciators while creations like Little Nemo pass through general audiences unremarked upon.

Congrats on the piece. Well written and informative as I wasn't aware of Winsor McCay's work before now.
