Creator and Artist Notes:

Inspiration

This Pizza Bros episode is for all the overworked, underappreciated restaurant general managers. Pixel art imitates real life when general managers are constantly getting calls and getting called in on their days off. This really happens. Really.

Difficulties

Making a pixel art bar with all the specific bar sprites was the most difficult to illustrate for this Pizza Bros episode. There are a lot of minute details to think about when creating a bar scene.

Comedy Writing and Pixel Art Coming Together

So, in real life there’s this stigma of working in fast food or delivery and it not being a “real” restaurant or a “real” job. We decided to explore this conversation that is a true point of conflict within the restaurant industry.

Most Fun to Create

The most fun to create and illustrate in this Pizza Bros episode was the introduction. Duplicating pixel art Ed into Fred, Ned, and Ted was hilarious. In real life, most general managers are veeerrrrrrry similar so we conveyed this idea with Ed, Fred, Ned, and Ted. A strange phenomenon, at least in our experience, is that all of the general managers working for a company tend to have a similar “look.”
