Limited Edition Art
I created this art for promotional purposes for Paramount Picture's Canadian theatrical release of "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run". The film's plot centers around SpongeBob's hunt for his lost beloved pet snail Gary. As a SpongeBob superfan and enthusiast I was thrilled to center my art around the prominent intellectual of Bikini Bottom, Gary.
As a loveletter to the cutest snail I know I imagined the bright, colorful and iconic art of the underwater world carried upon Gary's back.
The art above was finished by the studio as a canvas print and used as a prize for Landmark Cinema's canvas print contest. These designs I worked on were also being considered for apparel before Covid-19 prevented the film from having a wide release.
Below you will find my second favorite look which wasn't finished, but would have become a great poster or t-shirt. I liked the idea of illustrating the massive impact of Gary's meow.
Below you can see some rough sketches developing the final outcome. It was my absolute pleasure to sketch the whimsical objects of Bikini Bottom.
