Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

IF YOU LIVE IN AMERICA, PLEASE CALL YOUR SENATOR TODAY AND VOICE YOUR SUPPORT FOR NET NEUTRALITY! It’s easy, it’s simple, it’s not scary. I literally just got off the phone with a representative from my California senator’s office letting them know I support Net Neutrality. It wasn’t difficult and the whole process took less than 2 minutes.

Net Neutrality may seem boring or unimportant, but it affects every single person who uses the internet in this country. My job and career are dependent in a large part on having access to websites supported by smaller budgets, and without Net Neutrality reliable access to those sites would be threatened. I want to create jobs, I want to be a productive part of this economy and of this country, but if the FCC is allowed to create fast and slow lanes for internet traffic my opportunity to do that, along with millions of others across the country, will be under fire.

Please email or call your Senator today and urge them to ask the FCC to classify internet service providers as Title II. Don’t let the open internet become a page in the history books.

I don’t usually reblog, but this is important.

llydecke asked: Hey sir, how and when did you get to be so awesome? Were you born this way? Was it a chemical spill or radio active spider bite? Just wondering because your talent is like a bright rainbow of puppies and sunbeams. Okay bye. :D

First off / let me just say that this just made my day 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊 never have I ever had a compliment like this.

Second / you are awesome!

Third / I did eat sand and those little plastic wrappers for saltine crackers when I was a kid. This is the only logical explanation for my artists ‘talents’ as you call them 😎

I don't have a job.

I’ve been thinking a lot about stuff like this lately, because there are too many artists out there struggling to find work at big studios and those who do get those jobs end up without a job in 6 months or so because those big companies decide to do massive lay offs. AND seeing the awesome power of Kickstarter and how it can change the animation world (with projects like Bee and Puppycat) This means that we no longer are completely slaves to companies like Disney, Dreamworks, Pixar, Etc. I think it’s time we start making our own little studios (yea the pay wont be good) but we’ll be working on projects we love and we’ll be in charge.

Not in the traditional sense, anyway.

I think there’s possibly a misconception about me that I’m employed with an animation studio and/or working in the cartoon business, but that simply isn’t true. I desperately want to be working in the animation business, but believe it or not, I make my…
