As seen in Deadline:
“Meledandri told me he first started seeing the designs at the Giant Robot store near his home over a decade ago, and “I remember the immediate appeal and connection that the characters had for me. They are simple in design, expressive in personality, and once I got to know David and Sun-Min, I learned there was a mythology and a world behind this,” he said.
That’s Chris Meledandri above who was at the Uglydoll Photos from the Uglyverse exhibition. Yes, we had to keep it underwraps since then. How long ago was that? Here’s the photos from their exhibition.
Congrats to David and Sun-min and the rest of the Uglydoll crew.
