Last night I was Supervising the mix on a few up coming SpongeBob shorts, and had some time during the mix down to draw a little.
Paul Tibbitt was there just ahead of me leaving behind his page of doodles. They were very entertaining. After the Sponge has run it's run we'll be lucky if Paul sells a show of his own. Anyway, I suppressed the urge to knab his page drawings and post them, it just wouldn't be right without his okay.
The lucky folks at the Mix studio must have an amazing collection of drawings that people leave behind.
An Anonymous question: Ever notice how cartoonists' doodles often create ugly, demented, contorted faces or maybe normal faces that are in torment, anguish, rage, pain?
Wheres the happy?
Answer: When one spends all day drawing and writing happy go lucky kid friendly drawings, yes sometimes it is cathartic to draw the flip side. That being said most of the cartoonists I know are very happy people. We get paid to draw and if we're lucky to write. Getting paid to do something most of us are compelled to do anyway, how could that cause anything but happiness.
