Too Old To Die Young is a narrative depicting the relationship between mother and son as he struggles with the process of aging and the inability to separate from his mother long after her death. The relationship between the two is depicted by the particular way they morph in and out of each other. This music video was drawn during a 7 month long journey hitchhiking through Mexico and was inspired by the imagery found in Catholic churches. The entire music video was 3500 drawings in 5 binders of paper, 15 pencils, animated using a piece of plexi glass over a lamp.

Direction/Animation: Jesi The Elder.
Music: Timber Timbre.
