30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 13 - Eating ice cream

Godzilla couldn’t afford the ice cream because of his money troubles. No one ever gives him a job even though he’d be a great worker! Mordecai decided to buy the ice cream this time, even though he knows Godzilla won’t be able to pay him back. Godzilla gets really self-conscious about it, but Mordecai doesn’t mind.

Hey I'm just really confused. What is all of this Goedicai stuff about?

Godzilla and Mordecai are a match made in heaven. One is a giant fire breathing atomic dinosaur, the other is a cartoon slacker bird.

Let’s think about motivations. Why does a slacker slack? Usually it’s because they find no meaning or joy in their work. They have no reason to love it. They’re going through the motions, living their day, just so they can finally get home and do something they really love; something that actually makes them feel invigorated.

Now why does Godzilla godzil? Because he’s a monster? That’s awfully insulting to the intelligence housed inside his dual brains. No, Godzilla destroys Japan because it’s his natural reaction to stimuli. Godzilla gets awoken by lightning, earthquakes, crashing nuclear subs, and countless other disasters. The first thing he does? Destroy things. It’s not because he wants to, it’s like laughing when you get tickled, it happens whether you want it to or not.

When Mordecai met Godzilla in Japan, you suddenly have two competing reactions to stimulus: One who doesn’t have enough, and one who has far too much. Mordecai, desiring more stimulus, is able to absorb the feelings from Godzilla. Godzilla, on the other hand, is able relieve his feelings and calm down to a less destructive state.

So now you know. When Godzilla and Mordecai are together, it creates a stimulus equilibrium that makes the perfect couple: Godecai.

I knew Toby. However, the only thing that “knowing someone in the industry” does is let you know when there’s a job opening. That’s it. If you don’t have the work to back it up, there is absolutely no way you’re going to get the job. None.
There is no time for bullshit, everyone needs to be great at what they’re doing and be great from day one. So if I hadn’t had a good handle on my writing and drawing when I first started, I wouldn’t have gotten the job. Frankly, I don’t think I was that close to keeping my job when I first started, because my drawing was so atrocious. However, my writing was strong enough to keep things afloat long enough for my drawing to catch up.
If anyone tells you that the only way to get in is to know someone, that person is wrong and simply doesn’t want to put in the effort to become known in the first place. They are finding excuses for their own failures and lack of abilities to fix their own mistakes. Almost every person I work with was known for their work independently before they started working at Cartoon Network. That means they were making comics, selling their work, doing freelance, posting their work online, selling at conventions, and in general: marketing themselves. I know a large amount of people who were discovered on tumblr and twitter.

Again, the only thing that “knowing someone” will do, is let you know when there’s a job opportunity. Nothing more. Now, that’s an extremely helpful thing to have, don’t get me wrong, but according to many people out there it’s the only thing you need, which is simply not true. Job opportunities will always happen and you’ll always feel like it’s lucky you go them, but luck is just preparation meeting opportunity. If you prepare enough, then they day that opportunity pops up is the day that everyone, including yourself, will call you lucky.

inkplumes asked:

Judging from your post I could totally see storyboardibg in my future. Except my major is animation.. Should I change it to illustration?

Nah man, my major was animation too! Then I became an English teacher for 3 years. tobyjones majored in film, hamshears majored in comics, calwong majored in something programming related iirc. Majoring in some form of art isn’t even necessary, as is proven by the number of people I know working in our field who didn’t even finish going to college.

It doesn’t matter too much, as long as you can draw your ideas quickly, have the ability to listen to critique (this is probably the most important thing), and can hand in your stuff reliably on time.

When Dose Season 6 start?

No idea. Fall? Someone also asked me what time the regular show panel of Comic Con starts next year. Also no idea. Honestly, I know this sort of stuff at the same time the internet knows it. I only know when my own episode is going to be playing maybe a week or two before it airs, tops.

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 11 - Wearing kigurumis

Mordecai and Godzilla both bought each other kigurumis, but didn’t tell the other which kind they bought. Godzilla bought Mordecai a Stitch Kigurumi because Stitch is cute, blue, and small just like Mordecai! Meanwhile, Mordecai bought Godzilla a Pikachu kigurumi because pikachu is a cute monster just like Godzilla and he can shoot electricity and he’s yellow! When they opened up their presents they were surprised by the coincidence that the both got exactly their favorite character!
OOOOOHHHHROOOAARR!!

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 9 - Hanging out with friends
Mordecai finally introduced Godzilla to his friends! They all love him and get along super great, even though they know about Godzilla’s past. They try to reassure him whenever he gets down on himself about it. Sri’nareth, my OC, was able to take some time off from his bounty hunting job to tell a real good joke to the park crew, so that’s what everyone is laughing about. Sri’nareth is an immortal elf-wolf hybrid with purple pants and really cool glowing tattoos. You can tell how happy or sad he is depending on what color the tattoos glow.
In this picture his tattoos are glowing blue, so you know he’s really happy and relaxed! The park crew really likes Sri’nareth, even though he isn’t able to hang around in the park very often. He likes that they accept him, even though they know about his past.
After his parents died he ended up owning their estate, which means a lot of upkeep. His dad often hit him with the “lesson learner” (i.e. his belt) whenever he did something wrong as a kid. Now he lives a life bounty hunting and has sworn vengeance against belts.

Anonymous asked:

Was writing essays over different topics in school ever difficult for you, or was it always a breeze?

Easy. Mostly because I figured out a trick to use in essays: be funny.

Whenever I would write an essay I would figure out how to make allusions, references, and metaphors into jokes. The metaphors would always be specific and correct, but also funny. I figured that the teacher was probably reading a ton of essays that were exactly the same with the same structure and cadence and same kinds of metaphorical language and evidence.

I thought maybe if I could get the teacher to laugh I could start to win them over to my side so that, eventually, they wouldn’t realize I had almost no references and an extremely sparse bibliography.

I just looked over an old paper I made in college where I analyzed women being front and center of James Cameron movies. I referred to Sarah Connor as getting two great story arcs. One where she becomes “Super Sarah Connor” and one where she has to become “Super Sarah Connor but on the lookout for a heart”.

Fun fact: it worked! I was a star student! Even though my work technically might have had less in the way of references, English, History, Sociology, Psychology, and Science teachers liked me and I got pretty dec grades.

hebrideanisle asked:

Do you burn through a lot of pencils and erasers when storyboarding an episode, or over a season?

I personally burn through a ton.

I’m pretty sure everyone on the show except for me uses pens for their boarding (or at least majority pen?). I have a lot of trouble doing that. I have to build the shapes first using a non-photo blue pencil, then draw a final image on top of that using a 2B. If I draw Mordecai without an underdrawing it looks all wonky and I can’t get the expression right.

If I’m doing like an action scene or something really complex, I’ll just work at home on my cintiq. It’s much more efficient and I can work faster that way.

One reason I burn through them is that I’m the only person on the show that redraws every panel I have for the final board. I have a lot of trouble drawing on those tiny post it notes so usually the gestures, expressions, and basically everything about it is super off model and basically unsalvageable to me. A lot of people can blow up their boards on the printer and just redraw parts of them. I can’t. They’re too bad. :-/

Luckily JG has realized that my thumbnails suck but my final boards look good, so there aren’t any concerns when he’s looking at the thumbnails.
