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:
All my signings are at Drawn & Quarterly, booth 1629.I might be giving away free doodles with book purchases! I like doing things like that. I might bring a small bundle of original artwork too!
