Tutaj was recently nominated for a Jeff design award which he didn't win (Tutaj: I ... (sigh) I lost out to a puppet, it was a ridicu-- nevermind), but the same night, was privately congratulated and praised by a Jeff committee member whose work Tutaj really admires.
Tutaj: I think it's about respect. In the community. You know, from people who you respect.
I like it. It's a good criterion that doesn't hinge on money or an arbitrary critic.
See? He's a genius. And I TOTALLY kissed him today.
