Anthrocon has announced their second 2010 guest of honor: children's TV director, producer and puppeteer Jim Martin.

Mr. Martin has worked in a variety of roles since the foundation of his own puppet company, the Pupplets (photos), in 1973.

He became a director on PBS' The Puzzle Place, and went on to become a Sesame Street's muppeteer and director, sharing Daytime Emmy wins for Outstanding Directing in a Children's Series in 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2009.

In recent years, he has also acted as director and supervising producer of Disney's Johnny and the Sprites, gaining further Emmy nominations.

Anthrocon's first announced guest was James Gurney, creator of Dinotopia.
