The Garden Age


I am the Creator and Writer of The Garden Age, an independent animated series following a group of bugs on their quest to save their world from a lawnmower. Together with a team of artists, we've created a full animatic episode, and have plans for lots more in the future. The Garden Age is currently being pitched to studios, and is available to purchase.
