I think a small recap about their influence on NG should also be added below their memorial.

I have been visiting NG since 2002. Yes back in those days when everything was ridiculously crappy. But there was entertainment as well. Have respect for the contributers.

Is there anyway we can help to those affected by his death?


God has the mercy.

I've been going to this sight since summer of 2000, and I remember lots of the old artists and their work. He definitely stands out as one of the better ones. My best wishes go out to his family and fans!

People are getting stupider and stupider. Why haven't we learned that heroin kills people yet, when we see tons of great people dying from it. Let this be a lesson to all shooters.

Ben was a great animator, still remember the stick slayer series and the vs xiaou xiaou spin offs. He was a sound guy too, you could email him and he'd reply and offer help. I think it's a shame people are so cynical about this post and the guys memory. He's from an era when NG was going places, paved the way for you young assholes. I think a memorial page would be a good idea.

well he's dead. May his soul rest in peace for all eternity. But I will tell you this. I have nothing but apathy for anyone who died the way he did. He had it coming since the first time shot up. He was a dumb ass who had his whole life ahead of him and threw it all way for some petty high feeling. Let this be a smack in the face to ALL drug users out there. It will fuck your shit up, and when you die. I will have no sympathy for you.
