Hey gang! I was doing another event at the Cartoon Art Museum on Sunday. This was promoting The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water. Anyway, I thought there'd be other cartoonists there drawing. I was the first to show up, arriving before the museum was even open! They eventually let me in, and I started drawing. I'd gotten there before the movie promotion people did. So when the promotion lady did come, she had T-shirts, posters, coloring books and coloring pages for kids. There was also an area where people could make their own SpongeBob characters: they could take big yellow sponges and stick on felt, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, etc. The event was slow at first, but big groups eventually came in. I was drawing some sketches here and there. I think the favorite thing I drew was when a family of three had me draw them as SpongeBob characters. The dad was a muscular, bearded SpongeBob, and the daughter was Plankton. The mom didn't choose any character, so I made her like Sandy Cheeks. One drawing would have been my favorite, a pic of Mr. Krabs staring down Plankton, who is standing on his nose. But the paper I was using was too slick. I'd sketched in pencil, then gone over it in ink. When I tried to erased the pencil marks, the ink smeared! So I had to redo the pic in pencil! Anyway, I ended up being the only artist drawing that day. But I can't complain. I made some people happy.
