Watch: Jo Minkus, From Nickleodeon’s 2014-15 International Shorts Programme

I found another ‘toon from Nickleodeon’s 2014-2015 International Shorts programme that was recently shared online, watch Benjamin Anders Jo Minkus below.

Jo Minkus screencap Prop designer at Cartoon Network, Benjamin Anders, posted loads of character design work for his short, titled Jo Minkus, over on his blog, before the toons release online, so we have plenty to enjoy here aside from the excellent cartoon.

Ben’s own art aside, fellow prop designer Noree Kim has made an awesome sculpt of the shorts titular character, Jo, so I’ve included the post revealing that after the short and its designs. So much animation goodness in one post!
