I created the logo and the opening title paintings for the project. I went to a meeting at MGM with the executive producer and the producer, a woman named Catherine. She said, "We saw your sample tape and we are going to let you, and one other designer submit your ideas, and then, we will choose one of you for the project." I said, "I see, you get my idea for free and then what's it worth... you already got it." The executive producer laughed, he knew me for years. He looked over at me and her and said "How much?" I told him. He said "Okay." I went back to my studio and did a painting fast. I didn't like it and threw it out in the garbage. My lady friend said, "Where is the painting you did?" I said, "I threw it out." She went to the garbage and it was still there.
