Nickelodeon Storyboard Artist Draws Redditors’ Requests


Reddit user “thewondercat” who is also known as a Nickelodeon storyboard artist started an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on the social news site Reddit in order to have a blast with its readers. He asked fellow Reddit users to give him some ideas on what to draw, and then he would post them up later.

He started the drawing party on Reddit with, “IAmA Nickelodeon Storyboard Artist. AMA and I’ll draw it”.

Quickly, “thewondercat” was a hit. Requests for different drawings led to 5 hours of constant sketching that generated about 22 drawings — all of them were posted. The storyboard artist commented, “I drew for about 5 hours and got tons of requests. I wish I could’ve drawn everyone’s but hey, maybe I’ll just have to do this again sometime. I just finished drawing a request for a little girl’s birthday this weekend and I think that’s a good note to go out on.”

According to the artist, “Catdog Pooping” was the highest voted drawing. When he drew “SpongeBob Meme”, he commented, “Oh god, oh god, what have I done?!?! Nooooo!”

Looking over the whole thread, it seems like the Reddit users had a party with a very special guest. He commented at the end, “Thanks so much everyone! Wow, Reddit sure knows how to make an artist feel happy. Once my ego deflates after all these comments, I’ll be panicking knowing that I’ve accomplished hardly any “real” work today! ;)
