The Big Veg Takedown

The online adventures of Walter Lemonface

The Big Veg Takedown is a new, innovative project where artists, children and families all worked together to create an exciting animated story through digital collaboration.

Each episode was produced from the homes of 154Collective artists Fabric Lenny (artist and animator), Dan Mallaghan (writer and storyteller) and Nick Lewis (musician). As well as the animations, each episode is accompanied by a creative activity to unleash the imagination.
