So I finally took the time to catch up on the huge backlog of TV shows Ive been meaning to check out for the past few years, & one of them includes Bojack Horseman on Netflix. Im honestly surprised I'm not seeing much fanart of the show, aside from the obvious anthropomorphic animals things its a sharply written bit of cynical fun, taking a look at the hollow empty void that comes when people get what they want & have no idea what to do next. Honestly, I know that sounds pretentious (probably, I'm British afterall) but the show honestly took me surprise. While at first I thought the art style was a little bit sketchy/indy for my tastes Ive grown used to it pretty quickly & now I tend to care more about the characters & the fairly engaging story of a washed up actor trying to make himself feel relevant almost 30 years after he peaked.
Plus while Ive been working on my own project Heirs to the throne, I love how they have made subtle moments with the different anthropomorphic races doing things no human could or would do. Penguins running a publishing house & dogs always attacking Mail Men is one thing, but Having Pigeons outside a restaurant fly away at a loud noise after queuing outside for a table, having Dogs talk about how much they obsess over chocolate in the mall despite knowing it 'Literally' kills them, Maggots running funeral parlours, thats my kinda world building & something Im trying to add to my own world. For example, in Kindling (the City where Heirs takes place) all upstairs windows & doors on roofs are as heavy duty as ground floor ones due to birds & other flying creatures being a thing. Plus CSI teams usually consist of at least one Ape or Marsupial because they can get into much harder to reach areas than other races, etc etc. Anyways, I just wanted to drop by & say yes Im watching alot of TV recently, but its honestly all for research purposes & not because Im constantly awake at night in total dread that Im a complete failure as an artist & a creator. Honest!
(Again, trying to be funny & not really doing too bad atm, but apparently thats been coming off as a bit mean spirited to some folk recently. Maybe I need to not watch shows on cynical burned out individuals, but thing is, I love em too much)
Anyways, going to try & put my head down & get to work on the new Script for the comic, its been feeling like a year since I did any actual writing for the project & I would love to have an actual finished draft for at least the first issue by the end of the year. Times gonna tell on that one. Anyways kids, stay awesome & I will do my best to have something interesting for Y'all soon. (Thats a southern thing, because Im moving to Tennessee. Did you get it?)
