Woah, I had no idea this was serious and I thought it was a joke! What exactly did he die of anyway? He was one of my favorite artists on this website and it's a pity he was never able to make that final Stick Slayer flash.

Wow I haven't watch the Stick Slayer series for a while. Shame for such a great NG artist to go away like that : (
RIP Ben Spurgin

It's sad to hear about an artist dying, but it just makes me agree more that newgrounds should have a memorial page, for all those we lost, whether loved by all or not, these people spend countless hours of their lives doing something they enjoy just so we can enjoy it too, they deserve something extra to say that they were here, and that they are missed.

I may not have known him, but he looks like a swell guy. Anyone with with the will to work towards awesomeness on newgrounds has to have a an awesomeness about them. I'm sad to hear that this was due to drugs, and it makes me hate them, all the more. His family will be in my prayers.

Fuck you. You're not even half the man Ben was, you prick. People fuck up, you're not perfect. You're evil, dude. What you just said is straight up fucking evil. Rot in hell, asshole.

Oh wow. This loser died of heroine? Lmfao. I second Kaneda-X's comment. Spurgin totally deserved what he got in the end. God doesn't like druggies, kids. I don't think He is too fond of shit-tastic stick animations either.

But it's ok... I bet Ben is looking up at us and screaming right now. LOL BEN. FIRE FIRE FIRE. FEEL THE BURN! *sizzle*

And just what the hell are you gonna cover? How many track marks he had? How many fluid ounces of heroine he shot in his veins? How many needle punctures did they find in his rotting corpse?

I intend for NG to last the next 100 years, so this sort of page will unfortunately become more and more necessary.

I was just wondering why you'd want it to last for such a short time?

Also, What a snap of IRONY.

When he's shoveling out garbage such as Stick Slayer, it's all for the best that he isn't around to "contribute to the Newgrounds community" any longer.

You do realize that Stick slayer was made in 2001-2005?

I think you need to shut the fuck up. Hes dead, for gods sake. Give him alittle bit respect by shutting up altogether.

R.I.P Ben. I've always been a fan of stick slayer. We should send a card to his family, show him how respected he was.

If you see this comment on MindChamber's userpage then it's the original comment, this is just a copy.

May Ben rest in peace and go to the great NG in the sky. His legacy will be his awesome work and the good times that he had with his family and friends. I feel that it would be a fitting tribute, and if Ben's family gives it the green light, if MindChamber is allowed to complete SS9 and thereby complete the apotheosis of Ben Spurgin as one of the true legends/Gods of NG. I believe that the users of NG are like a family and each of us a brother.
Rest in peace my brother in NG. Your light will never dim or be extingushed.

To all those people who are going on about how Ben shouldn't have done drugs, it was his choice. You're only commenting about it because we were told on the StickSlayer page. If you have any humanity left, then you should apologise for smearing Ben's memory with your shameful comments. Both my girlfriend's and my hearts go out to Ben's family and we hope that his work will live on as his legacy. Our bodies are but flesh and blood, but the mind and soul are eternal. Ben inspired everyone who he met, either in person or on NG. I never had the honour of communicating with Ben, but he touched us all.

If this seems wrong or distasteful, then I apologise most sincerely - I propose a toast, "To Ben, one of the true legends of NG".

Hi Everyone,

I'm Ben's little sister and I just wanted to say to you all, thank you SO MUCH for remembering my brother. To those of you who have nasty things to say, all I can say is that I pray DEEPLY you will never have to know the pain, sorrow, and suffering of losing someone who is the world to you. Ben was SO much more than an addict. He was a brother, a son, a devoted uncle, a friend, and an artist. He was clean for almost two years before he relapsed and subsequently overdosed. In that short time of sobriety he touched so MANY lives in such a positive way. Ben was an addict. He made a HORRIBLE choice. But he is so much more than that one choice. For any of you who were lucky enough to know him, you wouldn't have a bad word to say about him. There was not one mean or selfish bone in his body. I am proud to call him my brother and I consider myself SO BLESSED to have had him in my life.

Thank you all so much for your kind remembrances of Ben.

Much love,
Ben's Sister

NG is full of uncaring pricks with no emotions.

And I'm sorry about the loss. I must say I'm empathetic.
