“When I had the idea for this comic, a suspense/horror story told from the perspective of dogs, I knew that if I wanted it to really work, I needed it to look exactly like one of those great, ’80s-’90s era animated movies. That’s what made me think of Trish,” Fleecs told The Hollywood Reporter.
“I had studied with Don Bluth in his online program and learned some of his theories on storytelling and acting for animation,” added Forstner. “Drawing this book, I’m taking those ideas and creating believable, lovable characters with emotional acting and expressions. This story is something special.”
