First off, congrats to Tim Sievert (former BTA employee and current PUNY wizard) for his Harvey nomination for "Best New Talent." Of course, Tim's amazing work is anything but new to us here in Minneapolis, so it's about damn time he got nominated for this award.
Tim is being nominated for his Top Shelf book That Salty Air, and you can read about his current project, The Intrepideers, here.
