When my kids were little we watched a lot of Spongebob. We were at ground zero, catching it when it first aired. The surreal humor, the timing, the writing that both adults and kids could appreciate? It was magic. To later find out that the series was inspired by the Ween song “Ocean Man” made it even more amazing.

I had been meaning to do this tribute to the episode “Graveyard Shift” (S02E16) Where at the end, the lights start flickering and the crew of the Crusty Crab wonder who the culprit is, only to find out it is Nosferatu!

It’s just so out there. What kid is going to know Nosferatu? I loved it. So here is my tribute.

Baby, it’s cold outside


I’ve had the idea for this piece for a while – it was inspired by the Lofi-beats to study to girl, but walking outside in the snow. Originally I had headphones or earmuffs, but I went in a different direction. overall I like it, but I feel I could have done something different with the background. It looks better as a print, but I don’t know if it’s print worthy – at least not a full-size print.

Baby it’s cold outside.

I worked on this through my winter break, while I battled a severe cold, possibly RSV. Weeks later I’m still not recovered from it. This was done all digital with Clip Studio and a Wacom Tablet
