Hey! Hoped you like the new animation! If you didn't see it yet, here's a direct link: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/648470

Now i'm gonna work on other things. Bye.

ALSO! Go throw a buck at my Patreon please. It helps a lot. Please I don't even upload a lot right now, so it's not big risk to anybody honestly. http://www.patreon.com/nobrainer

-Literally could not come up with a title-

Hey there kiddies! Thought I'd update here since I've been away for soo long. Well, here goes my update.

I've been busy working on moving my girlfriend back in with me, which has been taking up a majority of my time. Oh, let's not mention that I've had to get another job to sustain a life here in Wisconsin. While it's been rough, and have actually been depressed about not animating or drawing, I've decided it was time to say #FUCKITYOLO and get moving on a project I started working on it again. I literally started yesterday (11/01/14) starting from where I was in Wisconsin, and have made HUGE progress. I would estimate the cartoon being done sometime next week. Sitting down and working on things with jazz music on and drinking eggnog seriously helps.

While working on my one project which remains un-named (and having about 2-3 images out already lol) I struck an idea last night. This is something that has been said before, and dropped numerous times, but I think with my new dedication to working on content, hopefully it can become reality. I want to work on a No-Brainer game. HOWEVER, this is the ice-breaker, it's to end the series. One big finale, in one Point N' Click adventure game. I'm not totally sure how to go about making games, so if you have the know-how on how to do these things, PM me.

So yeah, not much, but hopefully we as a fan-base (that means you in that chair) can pull through and work together to make something fuckin incredible.

Heyo, so I am currently in the process of moving into a new apartment back home in Wisconsin. Moving in with the Voice Actor of Todd. I'm very excited to be doing this. It will allow us to collaborate on many new projects, and have him in many other animations.

My moving date is Septemeber 30th. So i'm aimng for that, HOWEVER, we're working with about 6 days (as posting this) to work with getting approved and being ready to be moved in. I'm currently packing everything.

I have a few projects lined up that I absolutely can't wait to begin. One is a sequel to a cartoon I made previously, and others are small games.

Also, to anyone reading this, I have a PATREON and I'm $4 away from my first goal, which will put me up to $50 PER CARTOON, and finally let me do COMIC CREATION. I'll be creating a weekly comic that could be anything. If you're feeling generous, please consider even a $1 donation. http://www.patreon.com/nobrainer


Also, quick sketch of ol' chowder.

New post.


Posted by No-Brainer - July 10th, 2014

I feel like whatever I post here is being shot down simply because it's to no one's liking. I've really tried this time to broaden my horizen by making something different and it stills gets a low score.

Maybe it's just my work being under-appreciated, but quite frankly I am tired of it. I think i've posted enough content to the point I should be getting SOME recognition.

I've made this statement once, but I think I mean it this time when I say I'm leaving newgrounds to other people. I'll maintain beng a user here, but I don't feel comfortable posting content anymore. I'm not asking for ass-kissing from the community, but my cartoons just don't get treated with respect here. I think i'll stick to YouTube for that.

Hey everyone. I know this is becoming a medium for creators to get their funding from, but it would help me out more than ever, for you to throw a buck at me, or 5.


If you sincerely like the cartoons I put out, then please consider helping me out. I'm about to take a job that will require me all week to work, leaving no time for animating. I'm almost consider this next cartoon one of my final major releases. Unless I get some income from these I won't be able to make them anymore, because it's not worth it.

I really want to keep making cartoons. Please consider this. Thank you very much for your consideration.

I recently moved into this new apartment in April. Ever since i've been here (or minneapolis, debating that one) I haven't been happy, like truely happy, in a while.  I'm in a shit relationship that I don't even enjoy anymore, my current job sucks and hate it, but getting a new one as I type this. My house is a constant mess becase of the people who live here, and my mone situation is constantly a problem. Plus STILL NO CAR so i'm forced to listen to the riff-raff of common folk, who's IQ usually range within 20-40 on the public transit.

Things have been just overly-shitty for some reason. I'm really in need for somethings to change because I'm about to retire Minnesota, and move back home, and start over there. I'm basially working off of a failed dream in an attempt to re-create my life. I was suppose to attend Art Institutes for 4 years, dropped out because wasn't learnng anything new. Girlfriend is basically stuck with me, and i'm stuck with her because we have no where to go but want to stay in the same area. It sounds confusing but we signed a lease together so we're in this till the end. When it ends I plan on dropping the ball.


Good things:

I've come up with 2 new things I want to make other than No-Brainer. One is a parody of Jimmy Neutron, the other is an original taking place in a mixed place of time zones. I'm going to collaborate with some friends on these cartoons to see if we can work towards opening a private studio. I'm really hoping these go well, because opening a studio right now is like a dream of mine.

Ok that's it. Bye.

So i've had this thing called a Patreon for a while now. It hasn't gotten a lot of attention, but I guess that's expected since there isn't a "fan-base" that big that's following me. HOWEVER, if you're reading this post, I would be so happy if you donated at least $1 to my patreon.

I want to be able to make a living off of the work I make. I put enough time into these that make the work look good. HOWEVER, I don't have the TIME to put into these to make it as good as it could be.  I'm too busy working a full-time job to make ends meet. I don't even need that much to pay the bills here, but making a No-Brainer episode per month would pay the bills and be able to get me out of a regular old job and put me behind the scenes animating even more!!

Your name never goes un-noticed too! I always credit you in the credits as a Awesome Patron!

Help me out by going here: http://www.patreon.com/nobrainer

Also, new animation coming really soon! I swear! :D
