~RestInPeacePrincess requested a sketch of Violet from The Incredibles.

I recall from when I was super in to The Incredibles, I watched the movie with the Director’s commentary and Brad Bird mentioned that in the initial stages of animation one of the first scenes that was given the OK to animate was the dinner scene. He gave each of his animators a short part of it so they would all have something to do.
They all ended up bickering over food position inconsistencies in the meetings they had, things like “What about the Peas” and “The Broccoli has moved!” One of the animators named Nigel asked over the top of some of the arguing “Can we please get back to the issue of the Gravy?” and apparently Brad just kept on coming back to him with that.

Sooo this image is somewhat of an homage to that. =P

Also, apparently The Incredibles are coming out on Blu-ray in April. ~Fucking Finaaallyyy~ and Brad Bird tells the story way better than me in the dude’s voice, so you guys should go get it.

I was listening to the commentary yesterday and when Brad said this I had the biggest "OOOOH! I get it now!" moment; I found this artwork a few months ago but I didn't understand the whole gravy part until yesterday. :XD:
