Congratulations to Aaron Bouthillier, who was just named Animator of the Year at the Canadian Game Development Awards! Along with Aaron, Jeff Agala was also nominated Visual Artist of the year — we’re super proud of both of them! Check out Jeff and Aaron’s blogspots for more of their work.

Sword & Sworcery: EP’s Craig Adams (aka Superbrothers) ended up taking the Visual Artist award, which we are also super happy about. They are certainly deserving, and if you haven’t tried S&S:EP, you really should!

Look out for Aaron’s work on Shank 2 early next year. Hit the jump to see the award in all its fine glory.

The trophy is solid metal! Heavy enough to clobber someone with.
