Cousin Joe Twoshacks’ ‘Whale in Lake Michigan’

By on May 1, 2015


Whale in Lake Michigan was written and recorded by my good friend JoeCartoon for his debut album, Rock & Toads, under his alter ego, Cousin Joe Twoshacks. Joe handed 12 songs to 12 different animators and gave them free reign to create whatever they wanted. So I created this for Whale. I must have listened to this track over 100 times before I even started animating. It’s a great track, and hope the video does it justice! You can find out more info at http://www.twoshacks.com. It’s a lot of fun and a great example of it never being too late to try something new, check it out!
