I feel like shit. Our management company violated our lease and let painters and cleaners in our apartment and a bunch of stuff got stolen. Most importantly my laptop and backup hard drive with 6 years worth of drawings on it. If anyone sees a 15” MacBook retina with 16GB of RAM on it for sale in or around NYC please email or message me.

Off-topic from Moon Animate because (1) Randeep and Anne are two of my very good friends who had their belongings stolen by their landlord and (2) I am very goddamn angry this happened to them.
Randeep and Anne are two of my friends in NYC. I met Randeep when he was a story artist at Blue Sky Studios, Anne is his awesome lady in IT, and they are two of the finest people I know. They were moving apartments (after dealing with jackass after jackass as many New Yorkers can attest), and their landlords had let the cleaners and painters into the unit they were in the process of moving out of, the day before their lease expired, and without notifying Randeep or Anne. They were only gone for three hours between leaving the apartment and coming back, but Randeep’s laptop was gone. Six years of art, photos, professional work, and memories disappeared. 
If you see a 15” MacBook retina with 16GB of RAM on it in the NYC area (Westchester and New Jersey too) that’s up for sale somewhere, please let us know ASAP. If you know any lawyers in the NYC area who specialize in this area, please let us know ASAP.

SIGNAL BOOSTING BECAUSE THIS SHIT IS FUCKED UP!

I’ve already served my time. HAHAHAHAHHAHA~

Dedicated to my young’un (and mature— age really doesn’t matter) followers headin’ back to school in a few. I’ll remain off in a small part of the internet pretending to be an adult; posting bad jokes while trying to pay off a monstrous debt.

I haven’t been in school since 2006!! :D

Character Designs from The ballad of Nessie by Andreas Deja

she’s so cute. It’s so… 60s-esque era type design, I love it, what a great throwback all of these are

Still my favorite Disney character design.

James Lopez, a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman), is currently trying to raise money for his traditionally animated project Hullabaloo. Hullabaloo is a steampunk short film which Lopez is hoping will help save the cause of 2D animation, and possibly lead to a TV series or film. So, if you’re interested in badass steampunk ladies or traditional animation, may I recommend you give a dollar or two. Hullabaloo's IndieGogo page is over here, visit to donate and learn more! And I’ll conclude with the plot: 

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

Together, Veronica and Jules learn that Jonathan Daring has been kidnapped by a mysterious group of influential persons, who seek to use his latest invention for nefarious purposes. These villains are wealthy and influential and neither Veronica nor Jules can stop them openly. But determined to save her father and holding true to the family creed that technology should be used for the good of all, not the greed of some, Veronica assumes the secret identity of “Hullabaloo”, a goggled crusader who uses wits and science to combat evil and oppose the nefarious conspiracy that has taken her father.
