So tired of these fuckin shitty Simpson rip off cartoons.
Can’t you bust your own style? I’m sure everyone who sees your work, notices the similarity straight away. kunt
Gay persian sex slave with a bear stuck up his ass.
you must be a blind poes
… as well as a stupid doos
Simpsons? Maybe a bit… but it reads more like a perverted take on that early Steamboat Willie micky mouse stuff.
Also, poes, where can we see your shit?
so ou’s cant comment unless they are an illustrator?
with that logic, i assume you’ve never uttered an insult to the likes of the bieber, britney etc.
It’s hardly a comment…
Ones style is a combination of the things that they’ve been influenced by. The similarity between Groening’s work and Laird’s maybe shouldn’t be so much as perceived as plagiarised, rather a homage to the art he most enjoys. There are many other cartoons that could be considered rip-offs of Simpsons- namely Family Guy. This guys stuff is exciting, new and South African, before you go ruining dreams contribute a little more positively to things rather than taking away from them.
Your criticism has little backing it Poes, and your ‘name’ speaks volumes.
Hi 5 for Alicia….yeah, art is about using what’s out there and making it better…if you want to make an Apple pie from scratch you must re-create the universe…but artists are inspired and influenced by the people and life around them…maybe it’s just Roger who’s a grown up Bart Simpson….anyway guys its all fun, keep a life jacket if you’re gona jump into the emotinal deep end…a’ight.
Funny random shit !! Its the world we live in. doesn’t look anything like the Simpsons so fuck Poes for saying that! Who says ‘bust your own style’ anyway?
Alastair, as beautifully-rendered as this portrait of the Mahala office may be, perhaps the passive-aggressive references to recent events are a tad puerile? Maybe focus a little more on developing the pathos of the Persian sex slave, and leave the intelligent dialogue to the grown-ups.
I’d love to see your comics Carol (allow me to get familiar), everyone’s a critic, pity you’re not very good at it. Thank you for your initial kind words, though it is rather difficult to appreciate them without the scathing aftertaste of futility. Suppose I left the intelligible dialogue to a stiff upper lip such as yours… monologue would probably more suit what you’re trying to do here. Next time we all wanna have a little fun or laugh at something childish I’ll stop everyone in mid-action and get them to check if it’s OK with you first.
And no, I quite frankly couldn’t give a squirt of piss how dimly you perceive my reference to recent events, I’m a cartoonist, that’s what I’m here to do: stir the shit.
Do the lesbians have their own POIB now?
Well said, Ally dear.
As for ‘the lesbians’, Jeff, you make them sound like a super-sinister governmental agency with links to the mafia. Unfortunately, as a heterosexual suburban housewife, I don’t think I’d be allowed to join their rather exclusive gang, but maybe I’ll get an invitation to their Christmas party as I make such a mean egg nog.
Freedom of speech protects the flow of information between citizens, not just the right to post stuff online secure in the knowledge that no-one else is allowed to comment.
Still reeks of The Simpsons.
