I wanted to pass on some sad and tragic news for those of you who are fans of VeggieTales. Longtime Veggie writer/director Tim Hodge has recently been hit with two crushing blows. This past weekend Tim’s 17-year old son was in a serious car accident and is currently in a coma. If that weren’t bad enough, I’m told that this same weekend Tim also lost his father to a battle with cancer.
In addition to his work on VeggieTales Tim was the executive producer for 3-2-1 Penguins!, a TV series for which I did some character design work. He is a terrific guy and I thoroughly enjoyed working with and for him. I can’t imagine the intense grief he and his family must be under right now. Please pray for them in this dark hour.
I’ll post an update if I hear more.
[EDIT: Here’s a news story about the accident.]
