If you're a fan of Spongebob Squarepants then you are a fan of Alan's work. He's the animation director for that show! And his partner Michael Uhlenkott is an artist and graphic designer who's work you've probably seen or purchased on sites such as Spoonflower. We're also joined by another "Michael" -- Michael Hanttula. He's the creator of the Tiki Bar Name Generator. A fun, slot-machine styled application that's strangely addictive. Google it and see for yourself!
