Kids see right through it...They know it's a stranger in a costume...They know the fraud that's being perpetrated on them...but MomDad says it's real, so...Better play along...Cognitive dissonance...And, sooner or later they start to believe it, too...They make the emotional investment...They buy in to the game and then forget they're playing...

I was doodling last night, and drew this (unfinished, though). Then, this morning, on the way to work, I got in a minor (though pretty damned scary and high-speed) accident.
Some old guy's old truck had broken down on the transition ramp from one freeway to another, and he was stalled in the little triangle area formed by the coming-together of the two roadways. I was looking over my shoulder preparing for the merge, and when I looked back I was careening right towards the old fart's pickup. I managed to avoid a full-on collision (it was so f-ing close, though) and ended up only clipping his right side mirror with my left side mirror.
Once a tow truck had shown up and pushed the disabled truck over to the shoulder where I was waiting (I wasn't about to try to cross those lanes on foot to get to him--people [like me] drive like maniacs there!) we were able to survey the damage. His mirror was ruined, but mine was actually OK. I thought I had totally sideswiped him, too! I offered to pay for a replacement mirror for him, but I guess he felt like it was the least of his problems at that moment, so we parted ways.
Anyway, I'm just glad no one was hurt. Here are a couple pics of where it all went down (with the location of the guy's pickup crudely drawn on the image):
Thank you, Google Maps.

But, that's not a good excuse for not posting for an entire week. Does it help to know that it's been even LONGER since I've been on Facebook?
I got to storyboard direct a couple 30 second SpongeBob shorts this past week. I guess they'll be used as promos or something. I think they are the best ones I've done so far (I've only done 2 others) but at least I'm improving. They haven't been signed off on yet, so I may have to alter some things.
Anyway, it's good to be back. And, as for this drawing...well, that's just what happens when I have a pen and the back of a Christmas card envelope.
