ok - so some of you've probably seen my previous posts pimping jason's artwork, especially Weapon Brown

well, someone put up sin-city inspired charlie brown work on deviant art, and suddenly it's all over the place

please check out this entry by stacia http://staciadevi.livejournal.com/210443.html?style=mine to see just how similar this new piece is to his original cover...

or this article from New York Comic Con's site http://www.comicon.com/ubb/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=538444#Post538444

or jason's website http://www.whatisdeepfried.com - he's been doing this type of work for years, and it's been burning me up to see all these people pimping this deviant artwork as a totally new idea

please spread the word on this - jason deserves the recognition

The funny thing is, whenever I see that posted somewhere, I see someone bring up Weapon Brown. I hope it brings him some publicity, but it looks like the DeviantArt piece was a one-off gag. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

i still think jason deserves mention whenever i see the piece posted though - so many big name blogs have put it out there as a new brilliant idea when the concept has been around and published for years - and while that shows up in the comments of their blogs, how many people actually read those?

they read the post by for example theridiculant, often via rss feed, but no-one sees my comment that hey here's this other guy who's been doing this for years

I know I have said this many times over, but thank you, thank you, for being an advocate for my honey's work. He's really, really good & to see someone get that many eyeballs for a two-page thing when he's got over 100 pages..

well, just, thanks. I caught some flack for sticking up for him, but it feels whacked to see someone else get all this attention for a very similar idea. :/

Thanks again. I'm sorry people in other forums gave you teh attitude.
