Pixel Day is a celebration of pixel art on Newgrounds. It was held on January 23, 2020. The best game, animation, music and art would be recognized by a panel of judges. My piece is called 'Never Give Up' it features old school Newgrounds characters. It went on to win best Art category in the competition.
Rough First Pass
My time at Newgrounds was a breath of fresh air from my years at Aol. Working in a start-up, close knit team, I had the opportunity to work on all sorts of projects and wear many hats along the way. I was also able to be actively involved with the userbase which was vital in evolving the website to changing user needs.
During the last year of my tenure at Newgrounds, my focus became the website and laying the foundation work needed to get Newgrounds to be more responsive. I am/was kind of sad to not be able to have seen it through to its completion but visiting the site occasionally it is refreshing to see bits and pieces drop into the customer-facing phase.

In addition to providing support for Newgrounds' digital offerings I also was able to leverage my print design knowledge to support print collateral such as mailers, calendars, and t-shirts.
Mailers & calendars.
One of the highlights and perhaps my proudest moments of being part of the Newgrounds community was being recognized for my community efforts. In 2007 I was awarded with a much coveted Newgrounds Tank Award.
