If fallen angels, beach plastic bag vagabonds, and stop-motion time dilation are your forte, you'd be wise to get familiar with the work of Tobias Stretch. Recently, the Philadelphia-based animator was in a debiliatating accident, snapping his clavicle which has subsequently cost him the use of his right arm—the one he uses to create his 10,000-photo masterpieces

We're huge fans of Tobias' work at The Creators Project—in fact, we think he's got what it takes to one day have his name spoken alongside the likes of Svankmeyer, Jiri Barta, and the Brothers Quay—so we're asking for your support in getting Toby back up and animating. Some generous friends have started a GoFundMe to help Tobias get the medical treatment he needs, and the support so far is a testament to the talents of the young artist. 

Check out some of Tobias Stretch's works below, and if you can, head over to GoFundMe to lend a helping hand.
