“Bento Box has been involved with some of the most critically-acclaimed animation on television, and has brought a creative perspective to storytelling and technology in the space,” Jones said. “I look forward to using my background to help them continue to tell new stories, tap into great artists and reach audiences for network and brand partners, across multiple platforms.”

In addition to his animation work, Jones has exhibited at MOMA, Tate Britain, and Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma, and is a member of the art collective Paper Rad. He has also worked on music videos and touring productions for musicians Beck, Katy Perry, Pavement, MIA, and Miley Cyrus.
