I am shocked! His original Yoshi's Island flash was the first animation I ever saw via the internet. I remember rediscovering him when RotMK Part 3 was featured on the front page. Godspeed to his spirit and remaining relations.

Oh my God...
This dude is DEAD???
At age 36... way too soon to die...
Does anyone even know how or what he died of?
This man has made some of the best submissions to our community here but was also a submission to a society...
I will keep what little memory I have of him in my heart from the submissions he's given...
RIP Randy...

Gone, but never forgotten. He's left a lasting impact on anyone that's been on Newgrounds and whoever had the chance to meet him in life. RIParadise Randy.

He was the guy who inspired me to do animations. I watched Rise of the MK each part pretty much daily and generally a cool guy.

RIP, be happy in heaven.

RIP randy solem :(

his sprite animations were my favorites back in the days when i was 14, i still consider his mario animations (typically the ROTMK series) as the best of the sprite animations ever made

Mario Vs Sonic was one of the first interactive flash animations I've ever seen. I did not know that it was created by this master. Rest In Peace.

ROTMK was always one of my favorites. Rest easy Randy..

This is positively depressing. Rise of the MK was one of my first favorites as far as sprites go. Rest in peace, Randy. I'mma miss you.

Oh, man, that's horrible. My condolences to his family, especially his daughter...

I'll always remember ROTMK and the Yoshi's Island stuff. He had a great sense of humor and was monumental in pioneering the Newgrounds flash portal.

One of my favorite flash animators back in the day.... His Curious George shorts were some of my first demented cartoons I witnessed. And who doesn't love ROTMK..... Shame he's gone.... I do wish the best for his daughter.

I do believe I'll be revisiting his work now.


OBJECTION!

Response to Randy Solem, 1975-2012 2012-03-22 14:50:00


Aw, man! His Mario vs. Sonic is one of the first sprite movies I had the pleasure of watching!

R.I.P.......... :(

Response to Randy Solem, 1975-2012 2012-03-22 14:52:20


Holy shit, really? I loved that guy's flashes..
Good luck to his family.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK.......................

This is indeed a sad day.......

hmm drugs or alcohol? If so then what a stupid waste of talent, not to mention never got to see his kid grow up...Why would we want to donate money though you realize how many others dont even get that chance, I understand the meaning but will never donate on anything it means nothing if they are not able to shake my hand and give me a hug or something just seems like a waste of money.

Hopefully he is in a better place.

Well this sucks. I mean IT REALLY REALLY SUCKS. One of my favorite animators who did the Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom passes away at 36? That's just so sad. I mean, he did alot of great work in the past and ever since 2006 I always wondered about what happened to him? Man oh man I didn't know he passed away just now.

I know I shouldn't say this, but I will surely miss him and his animations that he created in sprite form. He was pretty creative and knew his material about Sega and Nintendo. Sure he used some fart jokes, but his masterpieces like Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom was a great example of putting sprites from a videogame to work. He shall be surely missed. :'(

RIP Randy Solem 1975-2012 You were a wonderful animator and you kept the mushroom kingdom at piece.

Response to Randy Solem, 1975-2012 2012-03-22 16:45:55


Rest in peace. I used to watch his stuff almost constantly when I first got the internet. Years later I find him again on NG, and A day later he passes away. He will be missed.

I've donated to things numerous times in the past. Nobody is saying anyone SHOULD donate, it's an 'if you want to. I've donated to programmers for freeware that I appreciated, I've donated to website owners for material I've appreciated, etc. Many of his fans loved his work and donated to costs such as hosting, etc. From a programmer perspective, when your coding and doing work for your own purposes, your putting well over a normal work week of time into giving people something to enjoy, many of us appreciate that.

Nobody 'should' donate, it's a completely free will, appreciated gesture.

Wow, I remember watching his Mario vs. Sonic flash on his website when I was 12. Sad to hear him die at such a young age and leave his daughter. RIP

Randy was my soon to be brother in law. He was a great guy and will be deeply missed. I just wanted to thank everyone for their support. My sister Danielle and their 2 kids really need it. I would also appreciate it if some people would stop asking how he died, or assuming.(it was NOT a drug over dose). Really what does it matter. We lost a great young talent, and my niece & nephew lost a their Dad. R.I.P. RANDY SOLEM......
