Rough animation at its finest

As you guys know, I’m fascinated by the process behind animation. From concept down to production, the whole thing is just plain interesting. A personal hobby of mine is collecting production artwork. I don’t have much because the prices tend to be outrageous (I’m looking at you, Disney cels.) But I’m slowly collecting what I can get a hold of.

Here are a few pieces I have from the first season of “Spongebob Squarepants”. I have some production drawings from “Sandy’s Rocket” and “Culture Shock” and a master background from “Neptune’s Spatula.”

A couple of these were scrap drawings or were cut from the final shot, but they’re still great fun to look at. One of them was also edited a bit before it was used in the final. The drawings that ended up on-screen I have posted with the correlating screen capture.

If any of you happen to own any sort of animation production art, show it off! I love to see what other people have in their own collections.
