Michael O’Connor Clarke suspects Pickleshane has been ripping off my work. Though I’ve seen people “borrow” from me many times before [and usually find it quite flattering], Pickleshane seems to be doing it A LOT, without any due attribution to me whatsoever.
Heh. I’m not pissed off about it, I just find it maybe a little odd. Like I said in “How To Be Creative”:
What gives the work its edge is the simple fact that I’ve spent years drawing them. I’ve drawn thousands. Tens of thousands of man hours.
So if somebody wants to rip my idea off, go ahead. If somebody wants to overtake me in the business card doodle wars, go ahead. You’ve got many long years in front of you
I’m just guessing some kid came across my work randomly one day, thought it looked like fun, and decided to have a go himself. I did the same with my favorite cartoonists, when I was young. Whatever.
