The article I choose to research and illustrate for an Editorial Illustration was “Everything Sucks in the Animation Community Right Now,” by Vice. It discusses how animators who works for Warner Bros Discovery, Netflix or any Streaming Animation are struggling to animate projects due to tons of cancelation animation projects they neglected after announcing. One of the Showrunner from a cancelled project, Dino Daycare by Chris Nee, tweeted that Netflix was a Killing Spree as soon as the ink is dry, they move on to the next project and it’s saddening to hear. The CEO of Warner Bros Discovery cancelled upcoming animation projects like Driftwood, Batman: Cape Crusader, and the sequel to the Scoob! film.

I create a word web to demonstrate how HBO Max remove animated shows like Infinity Train, Mao Mao, Summer Camp Island, and many more. This is important to talk about this as so many animators are working overtime and either getting their budgets being cut to lower salary or not getting paid at all thanks to greedy CEO’s of Streaming Animation not giving animators a raise, gives up on them to move on something else, and mocks their animation workers. That type of conduct can make them lose business quickly. And for those who wishes to work in the animation company as part of their career. They are reconsidering to change their career after hearing that their dreams of being an animator has been crushed due to lower budget. This is what not a lot of folks understood that animation takes plenty of time to work on and money. Give that animation project and the team a chance and a raise too.
