Bored Panda reached out to one of the creators, Joshua Drew Jackson, and we hoped to find out a little bit more.
“Tubby was originally an inside joke between us (Jenine & Josh) back in 2016—Josh would send doodles of a goofy, round little nugget, and eventually, as his personality developed, Jenine dubbed him “Tubby”! The doodles became a big source of joy since we combined our senses of humor into Tubby’s personality, and for a while, we just started sharing his mini-stories with friends and family."
"Fast forward to 2018, while both of us were on a path towards full-time film careers—Jenine ended up being advised by her doctors to take a year off of work due to some unfortunate news with her health. And when that happened, we both thought it’d be fun for the two of us to create comics together to help keep Jenine’s mind off staying at home without work for a while."
"It helped a lot with depression and anxiety, and we thought maybe people on the internet could use some nugget content too. And when the account grew a lot faster than we had anticipated, we both decided that we wanted to keep doing this as our full-time jobs—and now, long story short, we’re here!”
All in all, we can guarantee that Tubby Nugget comics are the exact type to look at when you need a pick-me-up after you had a particularly bad day. These comics are filled with optimism, positivity, love, and they might even be the antidote your brain needed today. We believe that sometimes you just need a dose of wholesome humor to brighten up your day, and Tubby does exactly that.
