The time my cartoon was in a movie

*UPDATE – Since I told this story Mr. Giamatti has become a fabulous Oscar nominee – the sky is the limit!!

Years ago somebody called me from Warner Brothers and asked if they could use one of my cartoons as set dressing in an upcoming film featuring The Rock. It was a disaster movie about an earthquake called San Andreas. I said, sure. Then I forgot about it.

A couple years later I saw that the movie was on, and I thought hey, I wonder if they used it. And gosh darn, there it was! I took a picture of the TV. I am the absolute only person on the planet who would recognize this, but that’s it there. It’s a joke about predicting earthquakes. Because, San Andreas. Get it?

That’s it. There’s my cartoon. Behind the lamp. Taped to the glass. No, over there. That one. Really. No, really.

Here’s the actual cartoon, so you can read and confirm that yes indeed, there it is behind Paul Giamatti. Ta daaaaa! Faaaaame!!!! Dream big, kids!!

This and many other cartoons can be licensed through CartoonStock, and there’s 400-plus of em in Best of Brainwaves Volume One: The Fountain of Stuff, available signed from me or where books are sold. Yes yes!
