Josh Belford has been animating since he was 12, teaching himself the ways using MS Paint and Adobe Livemotion - remember those things? He soon met his first love, Adobe Flash (now known as Adobe Animate) in 2003 and has been using it ever since, along with Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, and boarding within Storyboard Pro. He's been drawing inspiration and motivation from his favorite artists like don hertzfeldt and Kate Beaton, and cartoons, such as Futurama, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Adventure Time, and the many spectacular works of Hayao Miyazaki. Like them, humor and heart are the main ingredients of his own creations.

He has submitted to the wonderful world of Newgrounds (where his fire of inspiration is also fueled) since he was a lad freshly animating stuff, as well as working with Machinima's animation YouTube channel and Ross Bollinger in previous years. Josh is currently working on an animated parody of Gambit and Jubilee from X-Men, and hopefully a live-action show with nuggets of truth from his life as an animator/illustrator/goof boy. 

If you dig his nonsense and would love to see behind-the-scenes photos/videos/sketches of upcoming projects and everyday life, and enjoy exclusive art, please check out Josh's Patreon page!
