I didn't realise who this was, nor did I remember the name "Stick Slayer" until seeing the little sketch on his profile page.
I used to watch those in awe. I can definitely count him as an inspiration back when I was getting started... I remember feeling a really weird immature kinda anger at seeing this Flash series that was "against sticks". I was just a stupid kid back then of course. None the less I liked them a lot and admired him much.
RIP, Ben. I'm very sorry to his family and friends
maybe you could post a link to his works in the newspost? this could be done also in the memorial area. I'm sure many artists would like to be remembered along with their works
