Jumbie Kids

My final senior thesis at Kansas City Art Institute! I wanted to make a cartoon about lore from my home of St. Croix and decided to go with 'moko jumbies'. Moko jumbies are cultural stilt-walking spirits that are portrayed in parades around the West Indies.

Its been a big journey/learning experience and I can't wait to create more things in the future!

*edit: aaaaA..thank you so much for the front page! <3

I enjoyed your story, but I loved your color palette.

I think you could have played a little more with the music and the moko jumbies, for example, making the drums a little louder each time the showed themselves, and then hiding again.

By the way, that's really fresh chicken that guy is serving hehehe

really nice adaptation with sound and animation also the theme really made it a little scary x3 keep it up

This is an excellent cartoon about your home. Good sound, smooth animation, nice framing techniques. I was interested and entertained!
