Working with illustrator Ann Alonso and Venturia Animation Studios on the music video’s creation, it explores the story of Wasabi’s sidekick, a fearless bird called Toto. Immediately upon pressing play, viewers are thrust into the vibrant realm of Mango Island as the flightless bird takes off on a rescue mission that doesn’t quite go according to plan. It’s well worth checking out!

I created Mangotale island as my idea of a possible paradise. It’s a cool, mysterious place with lots of interesting characters and plenty of stories within stories. It all fits together like a puzzle. My new video for “Medicine” is one of the pieces to a much bigger puzzle. I had so much fun learning how to animate and a big thank you to Venturia Studio and Ann Alonso as they were a big part of making this come to life. I’m really proud of it and hope you’ll like it!!
