I've given a lot of thought recently about my future here on newgrounds, where I've been making my silly shit for so long. Its been a comfortable home for my ideas for so long and I had hoped it would be home to all my ideas. But witnessing some questionable shit happen in the chat room recently and after discussing things with several other members since this happened, I've realized how much newgrounds has changed exactly and I've also realized that I no longer have a place in it.

My work is niche and it always will be. Whether its about a guy who meets Death, a woman wandering the desert of a post apocalyptic world on a quest for revenge, or an angry little girl growing up in a world her own way at the very least I've had a few fun ideas that people have enjoyed and I've enjoyed making them for everyone on this site and on the internet in general.

I lost that feeling today. I know the folks who work and moderate here have a lot to deal with and a lot of shit, I respect that. But I'm from the "everyone has to follow the rules" crowd, that even means friends of the people who enforce the rules. When that isnt done, I get very upset and feel even more upset when I know some of the people who were banned and have since left the site had been supporters as well I feel sick.

Thats when I realized that this isnt the place for me or my work anymore. I had considered making a statement with several other people who see what happened as wrong but the more I think about it the more I realize that no matter who I am or what I do, my voice doesn't travel very far and I'm too old to let my ego think it does.

The last thing I post here will be the finished 2XXX toon. When that day comes, thats as far as I go and thats my final gift to newgrounds. Dont know where I'll be posting my stuff from now on, but I"m sure you'll all be able to find it when its there.

Newgrounds was around long before I starte dmaking content and I'm sure it will be around long after I stop making content for it, whatever newgrounds turns into after I leave is up to you guys the audience, the artists, the musicians, and the animators.
