Who creates Cuddles and Rage?
Liz & Jimmy Reed are the husband and wife team behind Cuddles and Rage. We started drawing during bar trivia in 2010 and decided to turn our doodles into a webcomic. We love working together and enjoy sharing creativity. Plus, we like to talk about food A LOT.
So how do you work together?
We both write for the comic. Jimmy is the lead on creating new characters and design. Liz handles the final comic drawing and sculpting.
Do you ever disagree?
Yes! We’ve disagreed on some hard-hitting issues, like:
- Should pancakes have moustaches?
- Why are cupcakes superior to muffins?
- Why doesn’t Middle-Aged Pig wear pants?
How do you make the dioramas?
Our dioramas are made out of polymer clay and dollhouse furniture. Each character is hand sculpted and placed in a scene with miniature props. We are obsessed with hunting for new miniatures and can frequently be found digging around at hobby stores and antique malls. The best prop we have now is a mini chainsaw. Adorable!
How long does it take you to make a diorama?
They can take between 3 and 8 hours to create from beginning to end. It depends on how detailed the scene is and if we’re able to prevent our cat, Kio, from knocking everything down Godzilla-style.
Can I post your comics/dioramas on my website?
Yes! We only ask that you please attribute the post to CuddlesAndRage.com.
