Interesting. I llike his work a lot. Too bad I never saw anything about why he is taking some of his movies off the site(aside from his bordom excuse).

Nice interview Tom. I was wondering...Can I write a story for NG DOCS? I already wrote one. It's really good. Creepy though, and strange too. Gaurentteed to make u ask, "What the fuck was this guy on?"! But it's a really good story. I have a sequel I could post later too. Want me to email it?

40 percent of ng members given the chance to meet tom or wade would hug them in a not so brotherly way

more like a shaking baby way to shake some loose change out of thier pants

20 percent would laugh and scream OWN3d
5 percent get banned and booted for saying or doing something dumb

5 percent would kidnap tom and wade take them to mc donalds then show the FBI the terrorist wade video and rat him out and do a selma and louise off the grand canyon

30 percent would have a mature converstation about more than dayyyum u see that girl with that tittties mmmm
and foemy sucks and what not

so sad but so true

i dont hate foamy i think he doesnt do anything for the site hes taking his movies off ng i mean how rude is that??

Remember when all those users were bashing his movies? How rude was that?

As for me, I haven't really seen much of his movies, so I can't judge them, but I'm off to watch them now.

That interview was really well done there Tom. It gave us a better understanding of what illwillpress' mind is doing with the Neurotically Yours series. Its kind of weird, after reading the interview, I kind of gained a little respect for him. Except for the jealousy of having no talent in not liking his movies part. I just think they got stale, not that I'm jealous. I know I have no talent and I've learned to deal with it.

Remember that? i was in heaven that day i got tons of blam and protection points that day

almost every other animator gives something back to ng from the time trial thing or responds to his reviews and makes a movie and whatnot just for the fans but foamy seems to hate his fans thinks we are here to support him and thats our only function

I scanned over it briefly until I got bored, like I did with his movies. I guess they're not for me; same background, idiot character pissing and whining about whatever with no real animation, no thanks. If I don't agree or care about what the little rodent is bitching about, WHAT IS THE POINT OF THE ANIMATION??? How many's he done? Five thousand? And they're all identical and boring. Well, hip hop hooray for him then! Weeooeeooeeoo!!! Mazel tov!!!

...Oh, but hey, I'm speaking out from a lack of talent and success, right? Sure, everyone who DARES to criticize Illwillpress is all full of Sour Grapes. (I've been a legitimate published newspaper cartoonist for 12 years, my animations were to be part of a show on the Sci-Fi Channel that unfortunately fell through when they changed management, and I did some work on the 3rd Series of Garbage Pail Kids cards, due this September, which accounted for my recent inability to turn out animations in a timely fashion. How's that?) Wow, I guess I DID read that part, and the part where he says he likes Morrissey! (snicker!!!)

Besides, he talked shit FIRST.

I like the whole new NGMag thingy though. Cool design, and it's nice to have all that content in one place.

Cool, it's good to read the voice behind the cartoons. You learn that these flash artists have more to say than 'duh....porn' or 'uh, my mum makes me do the laundry on wednesday, why don't we play dungeons and dragons on thursday?'

Tom, you should have asked him to put subtitles on his movies because i can only understand half of the stuff he says.

And interview Strawberry Clock if you can, or at least one of the key Clock members.

I think we've done enough ragging on IllWillPress anyway. It got nowhere, and he'll be popular for another while at least. Calling him stupid names did nothing, and, although I'm not a fan of his work, maybe we should give him a rest.

BUY A FOAMY TSHIRT.

Lololol.

I still wish he'd stop tweening that damn squirrel so much.

He has the talent to do some decent animation, but he still doesen't.

Hope to see some in the future though.

WOW... just got done reading the article. I like the NY stuff, but he kind of comes off like asshole. Sorry to say but didn't the struggling artist shit kind of crap out in the 90's when cobain shot himself or is that one a timeless classic.

Tom,

Just read the interview. Great questions and lots of good info. I also found it inspiring in a way because I love to hear about where people came from and where they hope to go. I appreciated most some of the comments illwill had on the tone of NG users as well as the importance of netowrking and supporting fellow animators. There are a lot of people on here that take for granted both the effort that goes into running NG as well as the effort users put into their sumbitted work. It would be really nice to see a lot less empty complaints and more reviews offering constructive and well thought out criticism. I'm not asking for a utopia, nor am I ingnoring the fact that there are a lot of users out there who do put a lot of thought into their reviews and support the artists in ways that they can (reviews, buying merchandise, participating in forum discussions, etc.)

I love NG and the opportunities it provides to both viewers and artists and I think that having more interviews like this in the NG Mag can be an entertaining as well as powerful thing. When attempting to cleanse NG of bitterness (like Foamy hate clubs) and childinsh reviews (the "dis sukz/BLAM everything" crowd) there's always the threat of cancelling accounts and what not. But in my experience it is always better to reward good deeds and lead by example rather than to punish the insubordiante. And I think that interviews like this one, assuming people really take the time to read them, can help do a lot to move the NG crowd into a more mature mindset of reviewing honestly, supporting eachother, and appreciating the work of everyone involved in the community. Unfortunately, the ones most likely to read and take to heart these interviews are most likely the people who visit NG just to see sticks gettting killed and dick and fart jokes (which definatley have their place :) ). Basically, love the new NG Mag and I'm looking forward to more interviews and the future of NG, both the community as well as updates to the look and functionality of the site.

Thanks for all your wok.

(You and Dan need to promise an interview once AH is all done)

QUOTES THAT EVERYONE SHOULD READ

"Besides, just having a ranting squirrel every episode would get dull"

Yeah, I guess it would. *cough* *cough*

"For every one hate mail I get, I receive about 1500 that thank me for my work."

interesting. see you fuckernutters, stop sending him hatemail, its drowned out by the other stuff. and also please stop making threads in the BBS kthx

"None. I have no money for a car. Don't even have a license yet."

Illwill = not rich
ok. so stop saying he makes a ton of money with his merchandies. And stop making threads in the BBS kthx

"C'mon workin' 16 hours a day on Foamy..."

Illwill = works hard
ok. so stop saying his movies are done in 15 minutes. Well he might still be lying a bit on that one but still. So stop threads in the BBS kthx

"For those who like to cry sell-out, keep in mind, I TURNED DOWN, a lucrative opportunity."

that's the best part of the interview : )
Everyone should read this whole interview. And stop making Illwill threads in the BBS kthx

"NG is still by far THE BEST flash portal, period."

see? see? He likes ng. so stop making....

I enjoyed this interview very much, because Illwill in generaly very quiet and pretty much all of what we've heard from him was from reviews and replies to reviews of his movies.
Can't wait for more NG Mag, its gotten a great start so far.
