Dragon Cat Says: "#SaveIdeasTap DAMMIT!"

Hello there Peeps! It is I once again with a slightly more serious update more closer to my heart.

Unless you've been living under a rock within this month, many of you folks should by now know that IdeasTap, an incredibly awesome Arts charity is closing down and I'm not going to lie it saddened me to hear. At first I didn't want to believe it and even joked at the time "isn't it one month too early for April Fool's"? But alas it wasn't, it was true whether I liked it or not.

What can I say? I love IdeasTap to bits. Thanks to them and the equally amazing The Tommy Fund I am finally able to create my animated short GANTO which I am really hoping to finish by the end of this year! The amount of times this amazing charity has inspired me to keep working towards my dreams and not give up is phenomenal! Even when I've lost their competitions, it was still a fantastic learning experience with something new added towards my growing portfolio. Without IdeasTap many artists, such as myself will now struggle even more than we already do in this ever growing, dog eat dog creative world. 

Remember Dragon Cat folks? As a tribute towards IdeasTap I've decided to colour Dragon Cat using the colours from the IdeasTap logo. It's not much but it is my way of saying thank you.
BUT...And it is a very big but, all hope is not lost why? Because IdeasTap is just too good to lose, many artists and IdeasTap members from all over Britain are rallying around to save it HOORAH! So if you too wouldn't like to see this great organisation go than get involved! Join the Facebook page, join the Save IdeasTap website, sign the Petition etc. Spread the word, no way in hell should we let this go without a fight! Look, even Dragon Cat is joining in now...
See? Do whatever you can, even if it's something as incredibly small as writing #SaveIdeasTap on Twitter, it sure as hell is better than nothing. And if we do manage to succeed who knows? Maybe you will indeed see Dragon Cat come to life after I'm done with GANTO...

Well, that's all for now folks and until next time...

See ya later Navigators and remember, be sure to join in to #SaveIdeasTap! :D
