Martin Nodell is most notable for creating a character we have come to cherish, the Green Lantern. However, that's far from all he has accomplished.  Through the 1950s and 60s, he drew many storyboards (artwork) for TV commercials. The most notable among them is Poppin Fresh, more commonly known as the Pillsbury Doughboy.

1985, 1994- the OrlandoCon Ignatz Award in Orlando Florida
