These ain't bad, if a bit too stiff. Dobson probably didn't get the job because, well, cartoon network was hot shit at the time of Ed, Edd n Eddy and you probably needed someone on the inside to get your foot there. You can say nepotism, but big studios only hire people known on the inside to minimize any bad hires.
But there is a HUGE amount of work and animations around that are small enough to get in by just applying, and their pay ain't all that different from the big studios. I've started on animations for kids under 5 and 6, very simple and niche stuff, and you start climbing from there. Unless you have the skills and some inside prop, you don't get to work for the california big ones.
I know we bash Dobson and all that, but putting the bitching aside for a second, he ain't bad, he is a competent enough draftsman that he could work for a small animation studio doing simple work. the shitty thing about his art is that he is mediocre and bland and it seems he can't grasp some more dinamic sense of style.
