When asked if I would be interested in painting multiple sets of dolls for the cast of surreal comedy Wilfred, I said, “Put the coffee on and keep those cheese logs coming.” The steam whistle was pulled and I entered my sweatshop and didn’t emerge until a week later.



There are nine sets in all, each featuring Wilfred, a manipulative dog; Ryan, his next door neighbor and dog-sitter; and Bear, Wilfred’s favorite toy. We decided that the Ryan dolls should all be wearing different shirts, just to break things up a little and make each set truly one-of-a-kind.


Haven’t seen this show yet? You should! Season 3 is premiering soon and season 1 can be streamed off Netflix!
