The Animator's Stash
why did you stop adding pictures
Anonymous

Well, it was for multiple reasons. For one thing, around the time I stopped posting, I felt I ran out of stuff to showcase, or at least the more interesting things. And then when I started doing the Smear tumblr, I felt like that was a much more interesting tumblr to post on, because nobody was really covering it. There are so many animation art tumblrs that I didn’t see the point of continuing mine. And finally, unlike the smear tumblr, not too many people were following, reblogging or liking the posts, so I felt like I was posting to a wall. Same with the Animated Food tumblr. 

I still do collect a lot of Disney animation drawings nowadays. I scour eBay, auction sites and other people’s archives to find them and save them for my own inspiration and reference. Since I stopped posting, I’ve gotten at least a few hundred or so more pictures.

Maybe someday I’ll get back to that.
