SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT
i’ve seen this pic go all around up and down the internet with all different attributions! it’s a joke. it’s fanart. it’s a diss piece. it’s by me.
HERE’S THE TRUTH: this was drawn specifically for me by Aaron Ancheta, junior assistant on vol 6. This was a few months before he actually became my assistant. I drew some of his characters (voila) and asked for a pic of “scott pilgrim punching someone’s head off in a geyser of blood” in exchange.
Aaron added the video game reference on his own steam and also drew ‘me’ as the guy having his head punched off. Aaron doesn’t hate me. It’s a joke.
I posted it on flickr and the scott pilgrim forum and then it escaped into the wild where it continues to confuse people to this day.
Aaron drew amazing Scott Pilgrim characters so i hired him as my assistant.
