Man o Man, can’t we all just get along? haha.Quite the fiasco yesterday. Look, I’m grateful to everyone who enjoys my work and i really appreciateanyone who believes they are helping me, so thank you.But I honestly don’t need to be defended here.In my experience (limited experience) as a cartoonist, I’ve seen first hand how many of us who are all digging for the next joke, can easily stumble upon the same idea. My friend and fellow cartoonist Derrick Wood and I actually joked about how many times he and I would post material with similar themes.So i’m sure it happens much more than you think. And although it may seem a certain way to you at first – I bet if you take a step back and see how many times we DON’T stumble onto the same gag – you’ll realize it definitely blows away the few times that we do accidentally step on each others toes.I definitely could have worded that a little better, but I think you know what I mean.
I hope you understand that I’m not angry with anyone, and I’m not saying that you shouldn’t voice your opinion, but maybe we can cool it down a bit.I’d really like to just focus on my work and try to keep the politics out of it.If you enjoy my stuff—GREAT! Please swing on by and check it out, but please don’t feel the needto lift me up by attacking other creators who, no matter how you feel about them, are in fact just tryingto entertain everyone to the best of their ability. And like someone mentioned yesterday -it’s very difficult to come up with new ideas every day so I hope that you don’t mind cutting us all just a bit of slack.I promise, we’re all doing our best.
