Gregor Czaykowski is a New Zealand-based concept and game-art cartoonist who produces art in the style of ‘The Curse of Monkey Island,’ an adventure game of LucasArts.
Gregor has produced Featherlike, an inspired, moving piece of artwork about loneliness and love that probably nearly all of us could relate to.
A tidbit in Gregor’s own words: “… I am also the artist of the original MS Paint version (that got really popular) and then I decided to remake it, thus Featherlike. A lot of people are still confused and think that I copied/stole from the original MS Paint comic and don’t realise I’m in fact the artist of both!”
Gregor’s other artworks are hosted on DeviantART, with 208,650 pageviews to date.

Artist’s remarks: “Finished it. Finally finished it. My Featherlike. Many months ago, I drew an ms-paint relationship image for 4chan. I submitted it. It got really popular (even frontpage on reddit). And then I was kicking myself so hard for not adding my name to it. Because now people will look at this and be like “OH DAT GUY TOTALLY RIPPED OFF THAT ONLINE COMIC” and they won’t realise that it’s the same artist.”
