Dear everyone. Time to put something to bed. For all you idiots who think im ripping Jago. Please do the following:
1. Go fuck yourself.
2. Look at my recent work. Look at Jago's recent work. Go fuck yourself.
3. Look at my entire body of work and the progression thereof. Look at Jago's entire body of work and the progression thereof. And then go fuck yourself.

I love Jago. He's an amazing artist. I also love myself. I am an amazing artist. There is no way in hell i would try intentionally or not to rip of Duncan. No way no how. This would not only devalue his work (bad) but completely devalue my work (very bad. and more important.).

My work of a couple of months ago may have held some visual similarities, purely incidental, to Jago's work and people told me this. People i respect. And so i have been steering clear of that stuff. If you think i am ripping. You are wrong. Look at my new shit. Look at all my shit. Eat your own shit.

Shit!

A friend of mine once mentioned it to me too.. the first thing he said was "reminds me of a certain mr jago"
I can see where there are some similarities i guess.. namely that you both use very bright and contrasting colours to draw robots with quite a messy style.

However, I would know the work you both produce apart any day.

You'd be hard pressed to find anyone that doesn't create works that resemble something else.

Christ, all these "anime artists" on deviantart.. their stuff all looks the same to me.

What the fuck is juice? I want apple drink! It's greeeeeen... Mmmmmm.

I've been peeping your work for years. If anyone could sniff out a biter, it's me. You smell like every other original artist I know... A mixture of cheap liquor, weed, old macaroni and pretention. It's all good dude, the real mother fuckers know what's up.

i think there's no such thing as 100% original work nowadays coz people are always influenced by each other, especially with the net and stuff, i love making drawings of squid like creatures and when i search the net there's a zillion other ppl doing the same thing. hehehe...

Ehhyeah. I think stupid people make comparisons as they lack the critical faculties to assess the work on its own terms.

That sounded really clever.

His stuff looks like really off register screen prints drawn really abstractly.
