Vincent Waller

Holy shit! Look at these awesome Spongebob drawings!

I was at Vincent Waller's awesome blog Incoherent Thought when I saw these two and I had to steal them. Visit his blog and tell him how much you appreciate his awesome drawings!

These two Spongebobs were drawn by animator/designer Robertryan Cory and I hope we see more like this. I'll certainly be looking for his name on things in the future.

Thanks to Rogelio T., here's an animation Cory did for the Atlantis SquarePantis Special.

It's because I've been going to Vincent's blog that I'm even watching Spongebob now, let alone a fan of it.

Notice how there aren't any pencil lines underneath or forms roughly sketched underneath theses drawings. Vincent's like Robert McKimson, in that he does what we all wish we could do: just put pen to paper and draw without any pre-thought or planning. Incredible!

You want proof that executives know nothing of real talent and art? It's in these drawings. If I were the producer of Spongebob, these drawings would be put up as an example as to the level of quality to maintain. And these are the drawings that are just drawn for fun. No one executive in television has seemed to make the connection: fun drawings equal fun show.

Vincent posts all sorts of fun and exciting drawings he does during his Spongebob story meetings, and lets us know to watch the show's inbetweens... which is where some of the most amazing drawings being done for television animation exist.
