    From the NY Times via IO9:

    ""This guy was very eccentric," the co-worker said. "He was so detail-oriented. If he had a free minute, he would start doing origami. The things that came out of his mind were so original and creative, you knew that his mind didn't work the same way as normal people. But you worked with the guy so long, that you just chalked it up to Jeff being Jeff."

    This morning, a report in the New York Times shed more light on Jeffrey T. Johnson, the man authorities say shot and killed his former boss near the Empire State Building Friday before he was gunned down by police. Nine others were injured by police bullets."

    [Also: from a Ringling grad, VK's attached work doesn't exactly put that school in a good light-- seems like a $100K+ education should do you a bit better. . .]

    You know who else was a [car] design student at an expensive school who went on to cause dreadful misery? No not me, John Malkovic' plastic gun-wielding nutter in In The Line of Fire.
    Theres a shot of him early on in the clay room at Art Centre pretending to work on some 3rd years quarter scale clay. I think. Or the investigators go there. In any case we're a bad bunch..

    The vehicles look pretty okay. I have to say though that this one is super weird:

    The strange art of the Empire State shooter

    It looks like a ship wrapped in fishing line being attacked (or possibly flashed) by a pink giant.

    Well. . .

    Ya know, VK, here we have a unemployed 56 year old "loner" with a female alter ego who produces kinda sorta gay imagery who gunned down a bullying alpha-male salesman who the NYT went outta the way to indicate "had a girlfriend."

    Given the potential gay bullying politics--interfering with a screed on "gun violence"-- this goes down the Memory Hole in a day or two. . .

    Funny little man. It sounded like he was cross because the guy couldnt sell his shitty art work. And splashed his brain across a wall to make him sorry. I pity America and how it equates owning a projectile weapon with freedom, no matter how many little kids get shot in the face and stomach in movie cinemas. Just get rid of all the guns, fuckheads.

    With the Batman shooter, we had extensive personal details inside of 24 hours. Here? I'm guessing the Media has most of that stuff, BUT it doesn't "fit the dialogue."

    Yep lets drag up the dudes art which has no relation to what he actually did, which by the way was maybe something he like to just do for the heck of it. And lets all mock him on the forums.

    Way to keep it classy guys..

    Also I don't really get why this is soo "strange" ...girls, cars and jets..... isnt that what basically every guy wants to draw, is that not like what we do here ...checks website name ^^^

    Why cant we mock the prick?
    Bringing his art in is pretty relevant given he finally lost it with the guy with the unfortunate and impossible task of selling his shit art?

    Ahh I just heard he got pissed off at some dude and wanted to take his anger out on him. I never heard that dude had to sell his stuff.

    Still there are people here not as skilled as he was, as of right now. Their are people just starting out probably not even have as decent. I don't think we should really mock some dudes work, even though dude lost his shit and went nuts, I mean think of If he had found a community which supported him when he was starting out.
