TITMOUSE

Throughout my youth, I spent many an hour locked to the late-evening glow of a basement television,
watching the bizarre, vibrant and violent works concocted by the wunderkinds at Titmouse Animation.

In 2017, I had the distinct, karmic pleasure of taking my love of their efforts from the role of
witness to that of participant as resident editor at their New York studio. It was very much a do.
