Hi! I would love to know how the blink animation for female characters in BoJack is done. Is there a way I could see a frame to frame example? Thank you!

Thanks for your question @amora-b! We gif-ed a page from our character bible to illustrate how we approach female blinks. We hope this is helpful!

Here I am with the amazing Lisa Hanawalt. Lisa is the production designer for the Netflix animated series BoJack Horseman, and designed the pink suit my character, Mr. Peanutbutter, wore throughout season 2. At last night’s season 3 premiere screening, I got to wear the real-life version of suit I had made (with help from the Internet) by my tailor, Sibeau. Cartoon suits can come true!

Lisa Hanawalt, BoJack Horseman | XOXO Festival (2015)

“Lisa Hanawalt’s uniquely funny and bizarre webcomics led to her current role as designer and producer of BoJack Horseman, Netflix’s series set in a world where humans and anthropomorphic animals co-exist. She also co-hosts Baby Geniuses, a podcast with comedian Emily Heller that has nothing to do with the movie of the same name.”


We love Lisa Hanawalt’s work on BoJack Horseman, so we asked her to create our next video for #LY2D - #HangontotheNight!

God if you have ever created a thing, you will feel this so hard. 

She’s a goddamned genius and so, so funny. “Having negative feelings about the work doesn’t actually affect the quality or value of the work” is my new mantra. Every time I have writers block, I let the negativity I feel about not being able to write stop me from even trying to write. This whole speech is such a funny, fun, real kick in the ass that any creative person can relate to.
