I got to work with famous cartoonist John K. on Miley Cyrus 2014 Bangerz Tour. John K created the cartoon Ren and Stimpy and the animation studio Spumco.  I spent many late hours working with john K at his home in the valley.  I also got to work work with two amazing animators ( Gabe and Alex ) from the Laguna College of Art and Design.  The project contained lots of animation with a very quick turnaround to be ready for Miley’s opening date in Canada.

I did not get to go to the concert, but I found a fan’s video online that shows the animation. It is a really shaky video, but it give you an idea about it what looks like during the show. Once the tour is over i’ll post the final piece on in the motion section of my site.
