Stick Slayer was one I showed off to my friends before I joined Newgrounds.
This was when I was still in high-school back in 2005.
(I didn't even know those cameo characters until later)
The latest episode, is....almost metaphoric to his death.
I especially enjoyed the whole "savior of creativity" aspect of the series.
For one...I never really enjoyed "stick" animation. Never really saw a point to it. I mean, even stick-animation like "Joe Zombie" would be better if fully animated bodies.
Sticks are kinda a lack luster fashion. It's like....even if it's a really good one...it'll still be like 80% good, not 100%.
Ben took a concept of irritation and made it memorable to the association that everyone who will see a stick-cartoon, will automatically remember his awesome animation.
Ben, a reminder to give it our 100% in everything we love to do.
And this guy loved Animation and Creativity.
