manchildren vs manchildren, because obviously being a lousy artist on the internet justifies these sort of stupid and childish behavior.
26th May 2012. The day I pissed off Preston.
“The second instant was a hit and run. I was minding my own business doing sketch cards for fans when someone pushed through the crowd, sprayed me with what I hope was water from a water bottle, and took off running after throwing down some manifesto of some sort (which I didn’t even bother to read so nice wasted effort there man).”
How rude! I was only trying to stop him doing a godawful Spongebob impression! Wheres my purple heart!?
Because he didn’t read my little note, here is what it said;
“Hello TomPreston. (To be honest, I prefer to call you TommyPickles, much more amusing)
You are possibly wondering what the hell just happened. Suffice to say, it was odd, maybe completely OTT random in a sense in which was attempted to be funny but ended up being stupid, a poorly thought out idea and made no sense at all.
That is what reading your comics is like.
I must admit, it is a shame. The path you have gone down, you showed real promise in your early years. (But I don’t mean THAT early. Then again, Tell people to ignore it and move on all you want, you yourself can’t run from your past)
Of course, this will do nothing to change your simple mind; I just wanted to be that one guy.
Love – A side of DeviantART who, you may see as haters or “trolls” but once again, your ignorant self lets you down. We prefer the term “the ones with common sense”.
P.S welcome to the UK. I suggest trying the Ice-cream.”
I wanna make some things very clear.
Come at me, haters.
It was WATER. Pure, clean, water. NOT SPIT. I am not that disgusting, nor harsh, so that theory can go to hell.
I do not see myself higher, nor better then Preston. At all. I myself have a fuck load to learn about drawing and if someone were to spray water in my face, I wouldn’t react as harsh.
I did it (as the internet would say) mainly for the lulz.
Those claiming it was assault, grow the fuck up. I could of done much, much worse, but again, I ain’t a violent man.
I didn’t even know he was gonna be there until a few weeks beforehand, you really think I would pay £16 to annoy one guy? Maybe I would, yes, but him being htere was just luck.
LOOK AT ALL THAT PUSHING I DID. I WAS SHOVING LITTLE OLD LADIES AND KIDS TO GET TO HIM.
As for the recent hate, do you really think I care? Maybe it was low, yes, but at the end of the day, it happened. Nothing can change it. I am have a happy life outside the net, so don’t bother wasting me with your hatefulness. I don’t HATE Preston, I just wanted to be a dick. Seems I won.
>just some spritzing with water
>not actually spitting on him
0/10 preston is not a cat on the kitchen counter you could do better
I was at the London MCM expo this weekend, selling prints like a faggot and discussing possable plot lines with friends, imagining which of you passers by would be the perfect breeding partner and generaly being bored off my tits.
I had no idea Tom was at the convention. I wish I HAD known, because I really would have loved to meet him.
The mental ability of whoever decided to do this saddens me. What makes it worse is knowing he came over to england and this is what he has to show for it.
This country has it’s fair share of cunts.
I love to poke fun at Toms work more than anyone, but he’s still a person. If I was there when this happened, I would have throttled the little cretin in the mask. I would have actually wrapped my palm around his throat and suspended him above the convention floor.
I would defiantly urge ‘unpopular’ artists of the future to engineer something like this though. What a great PR stunt. Toms sympathy rating must be through the roof right now.
