Hai guys! I'm Karl.:wave: Welcome to my profile! How are yah?

I'm a semi-shy New Zealand furry with Aspergers, a big eater, current university student, usually friendly and happy to help out. I'm absolutely nuts about animals, animation, computers and aviation, plus I totally adore Balto, Bolt, and a majority of other cartoon animals. I just feel I can totally relate to them because of their personalities.

Hope you like my artwork, and feel free to fav and comment them. ^^

Just then, I was typically browsing though the internet, until I found out the very sudden, and very tragic news about one of my favourite YouTubers. The YouTuber I am talking about is Colin Wyckoff (famously known as Kitty0706) who has just died after a two-year battle with leukaemia.

Now for those of you who don't know who Colin was, he was a famous machinima video artist who would use the sandbox video game Garry’s Mod, combined with some great editing skills to make hilarious animated videos. And by hilarious, I mean some of the wackiest and funniest stuff you can ever find on the internet. Some of his well-known works include his “Moments with Heavy” series, “Mass Defect”, “Team Fabulous 2” (his most-viewed at over 13 million views), and my personal favourite, his “Elliot Goes to School” series.

I do have to say that Colin was someone who was full of talent and optimism, expressing his mind of astonishingly creative comedy and storytelling in his videos. Even in his artwork which you can find on his deviantART account SirElliot24, you can tell he was equally capable with displaying that creativity on paper with his cartoony and exaggerated style thats reminiscent to the Looney Tunes and Ren & Stimpy, which are among the cartoon styles I admire.

His death has left me with the same emotional impact as with the recent passing of Robin Williams. Both were very clever and funny pieces of talent, but then sadly disappeared in an instant leaving a deep hole inside me.

For Colin however, he was aged 20 when he died. It was amazing to see how someone at the same age as me could be such a clever and funny guy. His videos helped me discover and get into the amazing games by Valve, and even inspired me to make a few Garry’s Mod videos myself (even if mine didn’t turn out that great). He was able to stay very optimistic and positive while delivering great content, despite struggling with leukaemia and several operations for two continuous years. Because he died at such a young age, this has made me very emotional because there was so much he could have done if leukaemia didn’t strike him.

In closing, Colin Wyckoff will surely be missed by me, his friends and family, the Garry’s Mod community, and the internet. You were a great sport Kitty, and I’m proud with what you accomplished during your life.

I noticed at the end of "AniMat's Classic Review" of "My Little Pony: Equestria Girls" you sent in a Patreon request for the movie "Balto"
