A Shark Eatin' People

Sunday afternoon at my sister's house:
Uncle B: "Hey, Oliver.  What should I draw?"  
Oliver: "I don't want to hang out with you."
Uncle B: "You don't want to hang out with me?  Okay.  Anyway, what should I draw?"
Oliver: "A shark looking at some people and he's eating people."
Uncle B: "A shark... eating people?  That's a little... dark."
Oliver: "Yeah.  The shark just has to get out of there and he has to eat through people."
Uncle B: "Okay.  A shark eating people."
Oliver: "Yeah.  A shark eating people."
Oliver leaves the room to watch Open Season 3.  A half hour or so passes, Uncle Q and  Sam The Girl arrive.  Oliver comes back for dinner and spies the crayon drawing.
Oliver: "Hey!  That's not what I asked you to draw!"
Uncle B: "Yeah, it is.  What did you ask me to draw?"
Oliver: "A shark eating people!"
Uncle B: "That's what I drew.  Ask Uncle Q."
Oliver brings drawing to Uncle Q.
Uncle Q: "Hey, it's a shark eating people!  Hahaha!"
Even though my little art director wasn't that enthused by the completion of our collaboration, I hope O-man gives me another chance and works with me again.

So he didn't pay you, huh?

Nope. Reminds me of every other place I've worked for. Maybe he'll pay me in 6-9 months, but I doubt it...



GOOD STUFF MAN, Art Directors can be rough, even when they're young.

Keep on keepin' on.
