KPCRadio Interview

Here's an interview I did recently for KPCRadio about working on Bojack and Tuca, making my own stuff on the side and discovering old cartoons on public domain VHS tapes.

 In other news, I'm still slowly working on Sublo and Tangy Mustard season 3 in my free time. Still waiting on a handful of voice records, but most of the main characters are in and the thumbnail storyboards are done. Currently working on designs for new characters and getting started on storyboard animatics.

Started writing Sublo season 3

 


I've been blocking out some character arcs for season 3 of Sublo and Tangy Mustard today! I was thinking this could be a shorter batch, but I have a bunch of ideas. Hmm...

I didn't have a ton of 'wacky plot' concepts but the more I dig into what's going on with the characters, the more story potential reveals itself. The tricky part has always been keeping at least one foot in Subpar/mascot gimmick land while I'm tempted to focus on how the characters' lives are developing outside of Subpar. I try to balance those elements so it doesn't get too angsty and self-indulgent.

(The stuff sticking out of the sketchbook is ripped post-its to mark ideas I liked.)
