AXIE AND CHAD
"Axie and Chad" is a 2D animated comedy series revolving around two roommates and the challenges they face as young adults figuring out how to live.
Axie is a goth axolotl who wants to respected, and Chad is a punk, carefree rabbit who just wants to have fun. Together they must overcome their differences to survive adulthood.
My animation team and I wanted to use our stories to represent a group of people that aren’t normally seen on tv, and help people laugh off the struggles of everyday life.
