Hi! I love Charlotte too. I think her character was dreamed up by Mehar Sethi (one of our brilliant writers)! Here’s a little post showing the process of making her, for anyone who’s interested:

- rough sketch of a deer lady

- refined her and made her more attractive (Olivia Wilde did Charlotte’s voice recordings and I totally referenced pics of her for the eyes)

- figured out a cute, 80’s outfit for her

- character designer Adam Parton created this turnaround based on my sketch and gave her mouths and moveable parts ( Adam is great. Here’s his Tumblr )

- and we did the same process for Old Charlotte. I like how there’s so much realistic continuity on this show, so I get to sketch lots of older and younger versions of characters. Fun!

You've probably gotten eighty of these, but I loved Bojack Horseman and I loved your design work. I hope all you talented people get a second season, you deserve it. — Asked by the-girl-who-cant-wait

Thank you for watching!!!

YES BOJACK IS GETTING A SECOND SEASON!!!!  NETFLIX CALLS DIBS!!

Just for fun, here’s a sketch from when I first started designing the show (with watercolors!) back in 2012:

BoJack. On Netflix. Friday.

You guys. BoJack Horseman is airing on Netflix RIGHT NOW. 

I’m so proud of this show and all the talented people who helped create it. On the surface it’s a silly comedy with animal puns. Which is wonderful. But, for me, it goes to weirder and weirder places and starts to subvert more expectations the further you get into it.  Like holy shit is episode 11 a doozy (in a good way)!  I think you’ll dig it.

I’ll be blogging more about specific design stuff after the show airs and you’ve had a chance to enjoy.

For now, I leave you with these off-model BoJacks:

Here are some pics of a mural I painted on a half-pipe at an Audi event a few months ago! After painting for eight hours we flipped the thing over and a lil’ guy skateboarded on it. This was a super fun job!

P.S. The brilliant Dan Cassaro had a much more eloquent response to this stupid email.

Is this real life?

WOW!!!

A year ago, I was going to start doing a regular political strip for the New York Times! But it got delayed with the redesign of the op-ed section, then I moved West, got really busy, and it ended up not happening.
This is probably for the best, since I’m no good at political commentary! But I relish the opportunity to make fun of the Winklevii and their bitcoin obsession, so here’s that killed comic strip. Dog Pennies!

The NYT let me paint some maniacal cats to illustrate my buddy Tim Kreider’s newest, beautiful essay. I highly recommend reading it.
