This is an excellent analogy, although it's more akin to sound + phrasing.

I just dug this up from a conversation last year:

That aside, I'm looking forward to seeing more from this guy.

you dont think the images and ideas of these pieces from the Tiger,Tiger show are unique? I absolutely agree that his lettering is an homage to Horkey lettering...but i have to say, the ideas and images from this show are extremely unique.

I think this guy just out-Horkey'd Aaron Horkey with his solo show. I wasn't into his stuff before the show as it just seems like a wanna-be Horkey like how Ching tries to be Durieux but with this one solo show he actually surpassed Horkey in every single way. Never thought an imitator can be better than the original. Congrats :clap:

I think I saw 2 prints when it worked for 30 secs. Tried the add to cart and fail!

Now I see 6 prints. Still can't click on anything.
