Lunch time Meeeting Fun!!!

We had a big story artist/vis. dev lunch meeting today. For some reason, I couldn't stop drawing. Here are some of the sketches. The two with the little fish was inspired by something an exectutive said concerning movies and the audiences. The quote was something like " We would never do a movie about a fish who lives in a house and drives a car because it would skew too young and wouln't attract that older audience." This is my attempt to prove her wrong. It's a movie about a little fish taha likes blowjobs and lap dances. Coming soon to a theater near you. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll care.

You should be afraid that an executive would say something so stupid, and ignorant. These people run things? Yikes.

Oh shit man. I'm glad I wasn't sitting by you. I would have blown it for you. I would have laughed so hard man. You're lucky I was across the room. These are fucking hilarious. I think I see a new character in the Chippy & Loopus world, Horny Fish.

In my best whiny Luke Skywalker voice: "I care!".

when I was in High School me and my friends used "fish tacos" as a euphamism for...well, you know. Where I grew up I never saw it offered as an actual food. Then when I moved to SoCal and saw ads for "Fish Tacos" advertised everywhere, I was stunned.

Anyway, there's a title for your movie maybe.

It's just like the anecdote Chuck Jones told our class when he visited Sheridan College :

One of the management types at Warners darkened the door of the story room one day and announced , in no uncertain terms, "Bullfights are NOT funny. Let's not have any pictures about bullfights" .

AT which, Mike Maltese turned to Chuck with raised eyebrow and asked : "Charles? What's funny about a bullfight ?" and then they went on to find out and made one of the greatest cartoons ever, "Bully For Bugs" .

All because some manager proclaimed that "bullfights are NOT funny" .

Thanks guys!!!
John, I have heard far scarier things from execs, believe me. My David Stainton catalogue alone would turn your hair white.
I think this fish willl appear in a future Chippy and Loopus episode. I knew someone like this once. It'll write itself.
Thanks again!

Jenny said...

Ha--brilliant lil' drawings there, my friend.

Marmax said...

...and I bet that fish has a wife and kids at home...Great work!

Lee-Roy said...

Haha! Way to go.

dtn, thanks for the looney anecdote.

the doodlers said...

Fish tacos is a euphamism for... duh, I am so naive. Why don't I know?? Is it because I am Canadian and have never yet lived in Southern Calipornia?

Continuing my recent tradition of porn typos...but this time I saw it and decided to leave it anyways. That other one on CountFunkula's I did not see, honest.

That's a classic dumbass executive pronouncements. In fact, all pronouncements are dumb. That's my pronouncement for today.

Love your blog. One of my regular stops.

Monkeyfeather said...

The fish idea is genius.

spock foolish said...

You could call him "Horny Mackerel".

RoboTaeKwon-Z said...

Thanks guys!!!! And thank you Spock for the name idea! Watch for Henry "Horny" McMackeral to make an appearance in an upcoming Chippy and Loopus episode!

Scott Wright said...

Great! I'd see that movie!

warren said...

Does he get all excited and blow sperm everywhere? Fish arousal can get awkward, y'know.

Doodlers! I'm shocked! This 'Innocence' from a woman who told me a little story involving a 60s hippy-girl, hash sticks, a toilet and a moving train.

did I just say that out loud?

the doodlers said...

Warren,

OMG, did I tell you that? HarHar... yeah, those were the days...

Pardon me while I move my walker closer to the hookah.
