Q:I just have to say thanks for making chowder it gave me lots of laughs during hard times and inspired me with its colorful and wacky art. I've been looking through all your asks and didn't see it, so what happened to the apprentices' parents?
The great Pasta War created too many orphans…
Storyboarding Tips: episode 1
Our newest creators signing posters of their newest shows at our SDCC booth! Gary Doodles, Steve Borst, Carl Greenblatt, Dave Cooper, J. Ryan, & David Sacks!
I’m the fat baldie in the middle!
Snuck into the Nick booth storage area to see some of the posters we’ll be signing today at SDCC..look at this beauty from Carl Greenblatt’s new project!!
I was pretty happy with how this poster turned out. It printed a bit dark, but it’s still really pretty. Our painters are supermen.
This is how work gets done in the office… or not.
If you’re at Comic Con this weekend, come see the Nickelodeon panel Sunday at 10 am in room 7AB. We’re going to show some work-in-progress of Bad Seeds as well as Pig, Goat, Banana, Cricket and Breadwinners. We’ll be signing free posters afterwards (not sure exactly where).
This is my rough thumbnail of our poster.
Come say hi!
Q:Who came up with the thong bit in the episode "The Party Cruise"? Seriously so funny.
"Nickelodeon Nostalgia" by NAS Storyboard Artist Aaron Austin
”I’ve been at Nickelodeon for about 3 months now, and I wanted to make something that paid homage to the Nickelodeon cartoons I grew up with. It’s amazing how much a cartoon can mean to you even after so many years. I’m so grateful I have the opportunity to help create shows for today’s kids!” -Aaron
An awesome piece by Aaron!
Q:I'm a student learning more on cartooning and making tv cartoons (Im 15 btw) And I was just wondering, where exactly do you start? on becoming know? like I have no idea....
Start by just making something to share with your friends. I drew comics at night and brought them in to school to show people. Years and years of that helped me grow and get better.
Q:do you have a favorite episode of chowder? or one that was just particularly fun or interesting to make?
Mahjongg Nite is very dear to me. My mom plays mahjongg every Tuesday night. Once a month, it would be her turn to host it. As a kid, I always liked those nights because she would set out special treats and candy (Peanut M&M’s!) for the ladies. If I was lucky, I was able to sneak some. I would go to bed hearing the clacking of tiles as they laughed and yelled “You bitch, you took my money!” They only played for nickels and such, with the winner walking away a few dollars richer for the night. It’s a nice memory. I boarded that episode before the show was even picked up.
Q:Hi, this is kind of trivial, but is the little redheaded president at the beginning of panini for president modeled after JFK?? I just saw it and he kinda has that Massachusetts accent
It was supposed to be Grover Cleveland!!! Just kidding, you are correct.
