Last Night, I Met...

Michel Gondry!

He was signing stuff at the Virgin Megastore in West Hollywood, to promote the DVD release of The Science of Sleep

I made him a tiny diorama pop-up thing out of a business card and a drawing:

I gave him one of my Mister Monster toys, too...

I think he liked it. Hopefully this wasn't posted by him.

I gave him copies of the drawings that I did for him back when I was working on my pilot, My Family as Monsters for ABC Family, and trying to get him as a person to interview for a portion of the show. It seemed like he hadn't seen them before, but was happy to recieve them. He asked if it was him in the drawings... and I think liked the one I drew where he was standing next to Godzilla's foot, the most. I gave the originals to someone at Disney TV to send to him, way back when... I dunno what happened... Oh Disney!

I got his autograph, twice.

And here's our pictures, for reals!

I think he's looking at the diorama I made...
probably thinking, "what the heck is this?"

You should've quickly covered him in a burlap sack and thrown him into your car.
