Hearty congratulations go out to American Splendor and The Quitter artist Dean Haspiel, who picked up an award at the Creative Arts Emmys Saturday night, winning “Best Main Titles Design” for his work on the opening of HBO’s Bored to Death. Haspiel shares the honor with Tom Barham, Marci Ichimura and Anthony Santoro.
Bored to Death stars Jason Schwartzman as a fictionalized version of writer Jonathan Ames — who collaborated with Haspiel on Vertigo original graphic novel The Alcoholic. Zach Galifianakis’s character on the show is based on Haspiel, who worked again with Ames for a promotional Bored to Death comic, “Super Ray.”
