Making KUTE - Podcast Episode 9

Nils-Petter Norlin and Nick Marino (that's me!) talk about the creation of KUTE Crew! This time around we're discussing color, magic, and lots more.

We kick things off with a conversation about the many helmets of Nils, who builds custom Stormtrooper designs and posts them on his Instagram. That leads us into a discussion of color and how it has informed the design and feel of KUTE Crew.

After some deep thoughts, we dive into a conversation about the role of magic in our webcomic. Thanks to some feedback on our previous episode from Loch Ness, we're laying out the rules of magic in our universe, how it works for our koalas, and how all of that informs our writing and drawing choices for this story. We'll have a new KUTE Crew update on Webtoon soon, so follow us there and read along!

Making KUTE - Podcast Episode 8

Nils-Petter Norlin and Nick Marino (that's me!) talk about the creation of KUTE Crew! How did we make this bonkers webcomic about a bunch of koalas fighting squids? Our deepest secrets are revealed!

We dive into questions about why we chose the animals we chose, which teammates are our personal faves, and why the leader always dies. And the best part? These questions come from the artist of the rad pinup below, Loch Ness!

Along the way we share about our writing and drawing processes for the comic, delving into our decision making behind characters, themes, pacing, color, dialoguing, and tons more. We update KUTE Crew weekly on Webtoon, so follow us there and we'll have another conversation for you soon.
