Remember back when I told you that I was going to be art-directing a song sequence in the big, important upcoming SpongeBob special? Well, I've been working fairly diligently on it since then, and it's been coming along nicely.

This drawing represents how I felt today when I heard the first version of the song. The lyrics have been changed completely from the storyboard I had been working from! Ho ho ho!!! Now, before any of you start wailing and rending your garments in sympathy for me, just know that the version I heard has not gotten approval from "The Boss." (And, I don't mean Springsteen, I mean Tibbitt.) So, who knows, maybe I won't have to toss out much of what I've done. Maybe I won't have to use this shiny, pretty x-acto knife on myself...

P.S. Here is a caricature I did of my next-door neighbor (at work, that is) Vince. I drew it a couple years ago when his hair was more Fabio-esque. I include it here because, as you will see when you visit his blog by clicking on the link at the right, his photo-realistic rendering of me is prominently displayed there. I just wanted to return the favor.

Man, that's sucko. They shoulda used the Conestoga Boy theme song. If they'd consulted with me, that's what they'd've used.
