He went on to work on the famous Tinga Tinga animation series and later became an animation teacher going on to inspire and teach others. He also made other work in collaboration with others, such as Children of War (2013)
and his more humorous Jino Pevu Uhunye
His contributions also extended to aiding and assisting with research on animation in Kenya, through interviews with key players and disseminating animation to rural communities, Allan's efforts in this field were always positive and his good nature brought joy to many. These are some of the photos he sent me whilst doing fieldwork in a rural Maasai community with colleague and animator Kwame Nyongo.
