The Big Bad of BVB – How Design Happens in My House

I was struggling with the design of the villain in Baron Von Bear. I wanted something that walked the line between scary, funny, and cute. And nothing I did amounted to all three.

But then my wife Anne (with whom I've collaborated on comics and is often the source of my favorite ideas) looked at this square-headed candidate and said: He needs hair, and he looks like he should have a little animal inside of him. Like a squirrel or something.

And boom. The design suddenly comes together, along with all sorts of implications for comedy and personality.

Anne is the best.
