We can finally announce it! Ian Jones-Quartey’s OKKO is a tv show!I was fortunate enough to (loosely) animation direct this incredible intro sequence storyboarded by @shiimai (Hiroyuki Imaishi)! Much love to the incredible revisionists @killapede and @buttsIug who revised, cleaned up and animated this with me <3 

Also, huge shout out to the hyper talented crew of storyboard artists @scrotumnose @bootswithnofur @Cuppatan @cartoonfuntime @dannyducker @miraongchua @stebvi @@parkerrsimmons You inspire me everyday!

Can’t wait for the show to come out for reals! I promise you’re all in for a treat :)

Dead Leaves(2004, dir: Hiroyuki Imaishi) is on youtube legally for free and if you like poppy comic-book style inks and high action animation with a crude sense of humor and very little in the way of concrete sense being made this is absolutely your movie.
