Some of you may have seen this announcement in The Hollywood Reporter about Disney’s new TV animation deals in which my pilot was mentioned, yeah?
Just wanted to clarify that cunch (J.R Goldberg), did indeed do character designs, but she’s also co-creator on the show. The article made it look like she was just on the design side. She deserves more credit there, and in the case of the show going horribly wrong, I want to know I can blame her, ya know?
Also, Frolie’s 12 years old and not the 11 listed in the article!

You are the most awesome creature on this planet. Johnny and Devi should be together....I mean honestly, who could ask for more in a man?

Wrong. The barrel eye fish is the most awesome creature on this planet.

As for Devi, she can do way better.

Hey is nice to see your name pop up on recomending blogs. Haven't seen you since I read JtHM. Wondering how you are doing and what are you involved in?

Asked by

I’ve gotten myself involved in some bad shit, man. I…I dunno who to turn to. Give me five dollars.

How do you imagine Johnnys voice?

Asked by

I use my mind, usually, but there are days I’m devoting all my processor power to gene folding or some such thing, so I use an external imaginator.

So recently I’ve been looking into getting a dog, and put in an application to meet a few. Got a call back from a woman from a shelter who, without even letting me say more than oh hello, launched into a personal attack on my character because of how unprofessional and disrespectful my voicemail message was.

I explained to her that she was maybe thinking she was in a dimension where a dog who needs a home gives a shit about answering machines, but to no avail.  Immediately received a call back from the shelter apologizing for the insane monster woman they were apparently fostering.

Here’s the voice message that drove her to madness.

I've seen you mention working on a JtHM Animated project a few times, and it's gotten me wondering. Is that your new 'pet project', or is there something else you're working on that you're more excited about?

The JTHM feature is a waiting for us to reach it at this moment, what with the things that have to happen before it, like the completion of the SQUEE! animated short. 

I’m excited about all these things, and each of them for slightly different reasons. SQUEE! and Johnny, those are all pretty much in our hands, myself and the people making it possible, so that’s great, but we all have to find the time to work on them in between other projects.

There’s another thing going on, bigger in scale but constrained by a more traditional/glacial animation setup. Can’t say much about it, but I’m looking at a character that’s been mostly in my head for the past two years taking her first animated test steps and it’s one of the best feelings of late.

It’s possible you’ll see more in the future, but for now, just be happy I’m seeing some really cool stuff while not telling you what that stuff is!

I notice that the characters Johnny and Squee have names that could be seen as derivations of portions of your own name. Is there some symbolic meaning there or is it just coincidence?

I’m not gonna lie, man: I am shocked. Johnny’s name, yeah, pretty obvious, but I had never, not once ever even connected Squee’s nickname with my own last name. Not kidding. I know people will read this and think I’m being sarcastic, but seriously, what the fuck?!
