Hey everyone! Thanks so much for your support when my apartment was robbed, many moons ago. We have been able to replace everything that was replace-able and I finally was able to get back in the cartooning saddle, though it took awhile as we ended up having to move apartments and get settled in a new place. Unfortunately it made more sense to me to start a new series since I lost all the things I had already drawn for Tough Guys, so for now, Tough Guys is no more.

Here's what I came up with: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/672871

Hope you enjoy!


Hey all. Hope you're well. My name is Joe Klein.

I am the creator of a series of cartoons called Tough Guys which has appeared on this site. I have enjoyed my time here and the response my cartoons have gotten. I am not a professional animator, just a guy in an apartment who really enjoys making funny things that bring enjoyment to others. When I started making these cartoons, I finally felt like I had found something that I was good at and enjoyed doing, and I looked forward to continuing to learn more and grow as an artist.

Unfortunately, on Friday of last week, while I was at my day job and my girlfriend was out of the apartment, some people broke in and stole much of our valuables. They took all of my girlfriends jewelry and both of our computers, and some other stuff as well. Thankfully, they left our dog, who was alone in the apartment at the time. She is safe but scared, and now becomes agitated when left alone.

The computer contained all my animations and everything I was working on, drawings, screenplays, short stories, pictures, some of which were not backed up. I had just bought this computer in the past year to further my animation and to create videos, it was the best one I could afford.

It pains me to do this but my girlfriend's sister has set up a Gofundme page to help us get back some of the stuff we lost. I would appreciate any help you could give. If you liked my cartoons and want to help the link is below. Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a great day.
