I’m J.G. Quintel, Creator of Regular Show, and This Is How I Work
By Tessa Miller
Cartoon Network's Regular Show follows the adventures of Mordecai, a witty blue jay, and Rigby, a hyperactive raccoon, as they try to escape their boring day jobs. Other characters include a talking gumball machine, a man shaped like a lollipop, a hive-five giving ghost, and a yeti voiced by none other than Mark Hamill. (That's right—Luke Skywalker.) The brainchild of J.G. Quintel (who's also the voice of Mordecai), Regular Show's wonderfully bizarre animation and over-the-top plot-lines have earned widespread critical acclaim, gained a legion of fans, and even snagged an Emmy award. We caught up with J.G. to find out how he works—from the tools he can't live without to the advice that keeps him motivated.
