Just last year I stumbled upon the opportunity set forth by the Jim Henson Studios to create and submit a creature that I imagined could be found living in the land of Thrall. There was one winner chosen and 10 runners up. I was absolutely thrilled to be honored as one of the 10. I have been a Jim Henson fan since early childhood and this recognition was confirmation that I am heading in the right direction.
