* WhatCouldHaveBeen
** Music/WeirdAlYankovic so loved the cover illustration Lawrence had done for ''The Food Album'' that at one point, they were in talks to develop the monster character (whom they dubbed Hank) into future projects, such as a suit for tours or even an animated movie. Traces of the character show up in the Fatheads segments of ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''. He was also Al's first choice to direct his landmark video for "Jurassic Park", but Lawrence was too caught up with Rocko and instead recommended his colleague Mark Osbourne.
** He was Stephen Hillenberg's first choice to play Spongebob, using the same voice he'd eventually use for Plankton, before Creator/TomKenny was cast. In fact, the deep, heroic voice Spongebob occasionally dips into is Kenny gently making fun of Lawrence's voice.

Born in East Brunswick, New Jersey, Osowski worked in his family's air conditioning installment business from early childhood up until high school, when he started taking interest in drawing comic strips. After graduating The Kubert School[[note]]All together now: [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants HE WENT TO COLLEGE!!]][[/note]], he was picked up by Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} as a layout artist on ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''. When that show ended, Joe Murry hired him as a story artist on ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''. Lawrence eventually worked himself up to being a director and [[DescendedCreator voicing the regular character Filbert Turtle]].

* GrossUpCloseUp: Of the "overly detailed painting" variety seen in most cartoons during and after TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation. It helps that he worked with [[Creator/JohnKricfalusi the guy who did it first]].[[note]]Technically, Creator/BobClampett did it first. Kricfalusi, who literally worships Clampett, was the one who brought it into the early 90s animation scene.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* DescendedCreator: Save for ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheHauntedWorldOfElSuperBeasto'', Lawrence's voice is in every show he's worked on. ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'' is currently the only show where he was only hired as an actor.


Added DiffLines:

* ProductionPosse: If Joe Murrey, Stephen Hillenberg, Creator/TomKenny, Creator/CarlosAlazraqui Dan Povenmire and/or Jeff "Swampy" Marsh's names are on a project, chances are so is his. Most of them met on ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' and migrated over to ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' a few years later.
