Ha! Yes. Pretty much.
Living in New York definitely was a part of it. But, I’d also blame exposure to too many comic books and horror movies as a child. Deep down I really just wanted an excuse to draw as many weird monsters as possible and filling NYC with crazy creatures fit the bill.
Thanks! We had a blast making the App. Glad you dug it.
Even though I created the show concept for Ugly Americans the property itself is owned by Comedy Central. So, ultimately it is up to them to bring it back or sell it to another network. If there was enough interest I think they would be just as excited as us to make new episodes. They even let us create an App in the meantime!
