I was just backing up my work for Nickelodeon Magazine and figured I'd share some SpongeBob inks that didn't make it into the magazine before the final issue. So, here goes (dialogue not included)...
These inks were for a two-page comic I co-wrote that was tentatively titled "Portrait Pandemonium." I used pen nibs on this one.
Story premise: SpongeBob sets up a stand at the beach where he paints portraits that aren't exactly accurate. To remedy the situation, he rearranges everyone's faces to match his drawings. It needs the dialogue to sell it, but it ends on a gag where Patrick is happy with the drawing SpongeBob made of him (a star).
Next up: a 3-pager I drew for a story written by Sherm Cohen, called "Patty-stacking!" This was the first SpongeBob comic I inked with a brush pen.
In a nutshell: Mr. Krabs keeps taking orders for larger and larger krabby patties (for big $$$), until a treasure chest full of riches pushes him over the edge. I had a lot of fun drawing this one.
Good times, those SpongeBob comics were...
