Thomas ‘TomSka’ Ridgewell is a perpetual man-child who makes stuff
full-time for YouTube with an audience of over 3.7 millions
subscribers. When he’s not beating an animator with a stick to produce
webtoons such as asdfmovie and Eddsworld he’s flailing around with
guns and pretending to be an action star. Choosing to fight zombies
and dinosaurs instead of learn anything at university, he speaks only
the language of the Internet. May God have mercy on his soul.
