Swipe File: David Aja And Mean Internet People

Comic book artist and illustrator David Aja may be best known for work on comics such as Immortal Iron Fist. But he’s also a dab hand at the odd provocative cartoon. Such as this V For Mickey Mouse. A rather popular one if this level of swiping is indicitive on clothing and stickers… tweeted online.

 

Thankfully, David Aja was there to cough a couple of times on Twitter and they suddenly disappeared… he tweeted;

Great! At last I ‘ve been swiped! http://bit.ly/sJaS7T and http://bit.ly/tg2XiG Thanks @MrGalaxia! Now I can say I’m a real artist!

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, jokes, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself. If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn’t judge, it’s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
