Robert Ryan Cory is an animation character designer currently working on Nickelodeon’s Spongebob Squarepants. Over at his flickr (linked to his name at the beginning of this post), Cory has posted some fantastic character sketches from the show. I haven’t watched Spongebob in a few years now but I don’t remember it being quite this violent and grotesque. His drawings are like Ren and Stimpy meets Ed “Big Daddy” Roth. Perhaps the show is taking a turn towards the weird(er)?

    I used to be a huge fan of Spongebob. There are many moments where I was like “wow, this is really dark.” There’s a great one where Spongebob gets drunk on ice cream at an ice cream bar. He wakes up looking so disgusting and hungover.
