In early 2001 I left Foundation Imaging to join Nickelodeon's new 3D department to work on Invader Zim.

Invader Zim was created by comic book artist Jhonen Vasquez and was Nickelodeon's first digitally produced show. The show didn't last very long which is unfortunate but that's given the show somewhat of a cult status among fans. On Zim, every cg artist had to be a generlist because the type of work was so varied between episodes. On one episode you might be building Irken armadas in 3d. In another episode you might be animating a house running through the city on a late night taco run. For another episode you might be doing HUD display animations.
