Sidenote: My most sincere apologies for my lack of updates on this blog! I haven’t forgotten it!
I’m open for anymore suggestions for who to feature on this blog too, I will post as much as I can as soon as possible! -fyab
N’AWW SHUCKS, YORR MAYKIN’ ME BLUSH..!
Thank you! Glad you like this blog! :-)
When I was in high/secondary school, nobody knew who anyone I loved from the animation industry was, except for a very small few. Tim Burton, definitely. John Lasseter, maybe. Hayao Miyazaki, definitely not (to name a few).
At university though that changed. I met great people who all knew and were as obsessed as I was with these animation bosses! :)
The animation community is small but a fantastic group of people. The internet has really been a blessing in many ways to be able to spread the love of animation to everyone who’s interested and to see animation from all corners of the globe. Super fantastic, really.
So I wouldn’t worry about other people not knowing who they are. It’s their loss! ;)
Thank you! I’m glad you enjoy this blog.

A few days ago, an article was posted about this tumblr on www.cartoonbrew.com
You can find it here.
In regards to the recent Cartoon Brew article, and to clear any misconceptions; this tumblr is indeed, a parody site to spread awareness of great animators, but with a sense of humour. No disrespect, offense, or copyright infringement intended whatsoever.
I can see how, in some posts, people may have got confused at the ‘meaning’ behind it, but let me assure you, this blog is in no sense meant to be taken ‘seriously’. It’s the people in the photo behind the text that count, not the text in front.
The Cartoon Brew article merely points out a change in social behaviour around animators without really explaining the meaning of my Tumblr, so that readers are taking the memes out of context and overreacting.
So, thanks I guess for the free publicity? But, really, these are internet memes, they’re jokes and parodies meant to be taken lightly.
They won’t please all, but hey, ‘haters gonna hate’, right?
