Haha what, how did they even allow that one? That's really cool, though, thank you Livejournal! Although, this isn't the [First time] I've been featured on Livejournal (Damnit, it looks like all of the comments there were deleted, what a shame)

For those of you who are new here, my name is Chris and I run a dumb comic website called [LOL_Comics], which I've been doing for almost 8 years (holy crap) . That is where you'll find the magic. I'm also the artist behind the original Nyan Cat image, if you think my icon looks familiar.

I will say that I am currently taking a hiatus from new cartoons. My new job is busy and I honestly have nothing to draw about lately. The people who send me hate mail for not updating once a week don't seem to understand this, though.


I'm also more active on Twitter than I am here:

https://twitter.com/#!/prguitarman

Or Tumblr:

But yeah, I don't really know how to end this, but I'll just say thank you again, and COOL TIMES!

I read about what happened last time you got featured and was sad when I saw there was none of the comments everyone was talking about.

Yeah it was pretty crazy. I think it became officially clear that day that some people want to kill me.

I remember the first time you were featured (and what happened after) very well, and the fact that apparently happened 4 fucking years ago is tripping me right out.

That blew my mind too, honestly. Not as much as the fact that I've been making these comics for so long in the first place haha

Hey, busy happens. And if you're doing this for fun and not for money, the money kinda does come first. I've heard people like to eat, or something. Miss you and hope you'll come back with new stuff someday, though!

How are you not rolling in the dough from the Nyan cat image? That thing is EVERYWHERE!

I'd say about 95% of the Internet is using my art without my permission for commercial use, many of which actually try to justify their actions when I ask them to take it down.

Man. :( You need to copyright the shit out of that thing, if you haven't already. I mean, obviously don't become a total dick, but other people shouldn't be profiting off the design if you're not.

I had to copyright it last April but that still doesn't stop people, that and there's so many that it's turned into a job hunting these people down. It's surprising how many people say "Oh I didn't know anybody owned this!" , as if nyan cat just appeared from thin air or something. then even if I do get something taken down, it'll just come back up the next week.

INTERNET!

I could understand the "I didn't know someone owned this" mentality if they were like... posting icons or linking to the video or making fanart or something not-for-profit, but if you're like... mass printing it on bags to sell or something, uhhhhhh. Yeah. You're not gonna print out Hello Kitty or Mickey Mouse. People know better, they're just idiots. And Disney isn't gonna hurt much if some random kid is selling $20 print screened bags. Not the way someone like you would. :(

I am glad you've got it copyrighted! Have you licensed it to merchandise yet? (I dunno if that's how it works.) I think a list of "These Nyancat products are officially endorsed by prguitarman and purchasing them supports him" would be nice.

IF THIS EXISTS AND I AM JUST IGNORANT PLEASE FORGIVE ME.

That really sucks, though. For as much as I've seen it around everywhere, you should be rolling it in with enough to hire someone to do all hunting down copyright infringers for you!

I actually do have a small Nyan Cat store (nyan.cat/store, I think. I'm on my phone and the mobile store link doesn't work) and I've gotten a bunch of people interested in doing other stuff but I am holding out for something that I think would fit the quality I'd want an item to be. It's less about making money and more about making something actually cool that I can be proud of :D

And I actually do have a lawyer and manager and they help a LOT with that stuff. I'd be so screwed without them haha

Awww, that's awesome. I am still annoyed on your behalf of all the people greedily making money off your thing, but very pleased you're holding out and getting cool stuff. *checks out store* Aww, definitely some cool stuff. The jewelry is really neat. I sell vinyl magnets and the Nyan cat would do awesome like that, I think. Oooh, and vinyl stick decals you could put on your car or laptop. And a plushie...

I am sure you have thought of all of this. Yay!! I would totally buy a Nyan Cat plushie. It doesn't even have to play the song when I squeeze it. (Though that'd be cool.)

Ooh, had seen the store when it was just the t-shirt (which I actually happen to be wearing right now!) and the jewelry, but you've added a whole bunch of stuff since then! The hoodie and charms are really tempting, might have to cave and get them!
