Dear Interwebs, that previous description (now deleted) about my kiddy cartoon in-the-works being "like The Tin Drum, only more upsetting" was a joke. I mean, c'mon people, really?
But regardless, it has been brought to my attention that the speculative echo chamber of the blogospere may be starting to cement this little red herring into fact. So just for the record, my cartoon will be completely devoid of characters willing themselves into Dwarfism, Polish street thugs, percussion instruments, or any traces of the Third Reich. Although at least three of those elements do sound like a winning combination for capturing that tender and elusive 6-12 y.o. demographic.
Anyways, sorry for misleading anyone earlier. I'll post some info about the short as soon as I have something postable. Until then, I think I can safely reveal that it's tentatively titled The Sloppy Seconds. No joking.

Hey, here's a brief update. The idea I pitched to the shorts program at Cartoon Network (The Cartoonstitute) was given the go-ahead to move on to storyboards, which I've just completed. So, next up is the board pitch, which is currently scheduled for an unspecified time in the near future. If that goes well and doesn't conclude with me falling through the trap door in the floor of development's conference room, then I actually get to direct my own one-off short cartoon at the studio! Purty cool.
