Making KUTE - Podcast Episode 8

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021

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.
