Victory!

  If there is anyone out there who still doubts that San Diego Beastheads jack faces and beast it, who still wonders if the dream of the founding father is alive in our time, who still questions the skill of the Sea World caricature staff, tonight is your answer.

  It's an answer told by Brian Oakes taking the Bronze Nosey, by Andy winning Outstanding Cartoon Style and Retail and somethin' else, by Nate Kapnicky getting the Best Exaggerated Style award with the most twisted, craziest stuff the NCN has ever seen, but most importantly by Sea World guests laughing, many for the first time in their lives, because they got a caricature, believing that this artist must be different, and his keen observation and imagination could be that difference.

  It is an answer spoken by fat and thin, tall and short, young and old, Japanese, British, Mexican, Irish, cute and nasty-lookin. Artists who sent a message to the NCN board members that we have never been just a bunch of hacks who wanted to work in California or a collection of wannabe animators and wannabe illustrators.

  We are, and always will be, the United Beastheads of San Diego, of America!
