Oct 13th will mark the 1-year anniversary of Ben Spurgin's tragic death.
Last year we tried organizing a collaboration in tribute to Ben's contributions to Newgrounds, but as often happens with ambitious collaborations, things fell through the cracks.
Most of the artists that were involved in planning the original collaboration still wanted to do something special, so we came up with a new plan: November 5th will be the official Ben Spurgin Tribute day.
For those unfamiliar with Ben's work, he was a great example of what Newgrounds has always been about. He had very little training in art and animation, but kept raising the bar on his own work, giving us something bigger and better with each new animation. In the process he created several popular series, making him one of the forerunners for today's animators. Check out his work here.
Nov 5th was Ben's birthday and seems to be a fitting time to celebrate his life here on Newgrounds. On this day, everyone is invited to submit games, animation, art and music using Ben's characters. We're looking forward to seeing your interpretations of these classic, NG icons!

Cool to see NG showing respect to the dead ones like this, Spurgin's work was definitley out there! Hope to see lots of good stuff on the 5'th!
R.I.P. Ben Spurgin.
Also, thumbs up PG for spending your 1337 post like this ^__^
I think it's great that you're doing this. I can't wait to see what people will do. As long as it's actually a real tribute instead of cock jokes all day.
I need a sig.

That's a pretty crappy name for that day. Just call it "Spurgin Day".
Nice initiative though. Sure he would've loved it.
A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.
rest in peace
Turritopsis nutricula. Its a jellyfish. And its IMMORTAL
Such a shame, I loved his work. Hope the collab brings some good stuff.
