Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of March we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 70 people to reach our goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in April!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

This is my most elaborate piece to date. This one is personally special to me, I've been working on it since early 2019. I am happy to call it 'Never give up' because this gif came about in a particularly turbulent period in my professional and personal life. I gave up working on it many times and it sat for months at times while I pieced my life back together.


In the end, through struggle and persistence the clouds do break and perseverance does reap benefits.
