I don't get the controversy, i think Sal made some valid points. I think as an artist you should be pushing yourself and trying to do your best all the time, my biggest enemies are sleep, eating and pooping;)
I guess the whole singling out the handful of designers that are better than everyone else comment could rub some the wrong way but I don't take it personally.
But whatever, Jesse kills and this conversation will only shine more light on a talented dude.
Well hate is kind of irrational, all I know is when is see this I want to not see it as fast as possible. I don't like the drawing, the colors or the type but I think the colors are what bother me the most. Colors give you a feel, and this color scheme makes me sick to my stomach.
I will say it's kind of powerful in that regard, I don't feel a strong dislike in art all that often. This one's special;)
