Heartaches Pilot 6 Bitter Repast

Continued from episode 5

At dinner, Roxy is not very hungry tonight.Mom notices the aura of depression around the table but tries to ignore it.
"MMMM! This roast Springbok is really scrumptious if I do say so myself!"
Roxy's head drops onto the mashed potatoes.
Mom's chewing slows as she tries to maintain her estrogen levels.
"OK, OK, what's with all the long faces? Did someone die?"
"I know you're mad about something! Stop moping you!!"
She turns to hippie dad: "What's wrong with your daughter!! Fix her!"
"Hey, why is everyone looking at ME?"
Roxy blurts out: "You threw away my best friend!!"
Then she buries her face in her hands and bawls her little soul out.
Mom tries to defend herself: "No I didn't!! I wanted to but your father convinced me to let you keep the dirty old thing, didn’t you Daddy?"

"For Heaven's sake! Tell her father! Don't let my little girl hate me!!!"

Father hippie gives Mom the evil Lobsang Rampa eye.

Mom is desperate: "Honest!! I didn't do it!!!"

Roxy's "Accusing" expression is priceless!

John I love all the little details, even in these quick sketches (like the mom mangling the bread in her hand.) I wish I had that kind of talent.

MJ said...

I love the spontaneity of these quick sketches, how are the shows coming along?

Niki said...

I like Mom's impossible first face the best! I love impossible faces.

Those executives really need to let you have a chance at making another kiddie cartoon. They don't know what they're missing out here. You could give TV cartoons the big kick in the ass that it desperately needs right now. Guessing they think that your ideas are gonna be too expensive to make or they're just plain chicken.

Hey John K! I want to work for you someday, so what kind of schooling do you suggest I take in order to prepare myself for greatness such as yours?

I really respect your opinion, seeing as you're one of my heroes. Is the Art Institute of Phoenix a big waste of money and time? Should I go to a University for my art teachings?

I'd really love to hear some advice from you. Thank you, and you're the best!

Roxy is making your face which is sorta bizarre and mind-boggling.
