Startoons Animation

I really enjoyed my time at Startoons; I learned a lot from some very talented artists and had the pleasure of working for Jon McClenahan. Jon is not only a great animator and director, but was one of the best bosses I’ve ever had. Jon led by example; his work and knowledge of animation was inspiring. Jon gave you the room to be creative and make mistakes. When you got in over your head, he was there to fish you out and get you back on track. Jon would always stress that as animators it was our job to be actors and give great performances through our drawings. I have always loved animation, but Startoons was where it really got under my skin. Click on the pencil test movie to see rough animation for various shows that I worked on at Startoons. Click on the final animation movie to see clips from the completed shows and/or dailies.
