I was commissioned by LA record label Waxploitation to create a series of animations to accompany their special book project: Stories for Ways and Means.

This story is Oslo & Plum, written by Jim James (My Morning Jacket), illustrated by Jacob Escobedo and narrated by Phil LaMarr (Futurama).

Stories for Ways & Means features original ‘grown up’ children’s story collaborations by some of this era’s most compelling storytellers from the worlds of music and contemporary art.

The project supports NGOs and nonprofit organizations advancing children’s causes around the world including Room to Read, Pencils of Promise, 826 National and many more.

This animation premiered on on November 29th 2016.
