Art style

Life of Miriam's art style is officially called, "Japan-influenced animation." This was a response by the creators to the viewers over the issue on whether the show can be called anime or a Western cartoon with anime-art style. The source comics use super-deformed/chibi art, and some episodes are animated in Japan.

The art style in some music videos and credits sequences use the super-deformed, or chibi, style as a reference to the comics.
