About

Nujak, also known as Nujack and Nu Wojak, is a series of illustrations featuring a cartoonish depiction of the MS Paint character Wojak, which has been widely accused of being a forced meme on various 4chan boards.

Origin

On January 19th, 2018, a cartoon-style Pink Wojak was submitted in a thread about cryptocurrency crashes to 4chan's /biz/ board (shown below).[2] In response, many derided the updated illustration as being "too Reddit."

That day, another thread was submitted to /biz/ with the message "Only one shall previal," in which several users speculated the original artwork was created by an artist using the online handle "ignacio_9" (shown below).[4]

Spread

That same day, an anonymous 4chan user claiming to be Redditor secondhandfather submitted a Pink Wojak-style illustration of Nujack to the /s4s/ board,[1] claiming the image was "an edit not original." On January 20th, a thread discussing the new illustration was submitted to /biz/,[3] in which another anonymous commenter identified the artist by the online handle "ignacio_9" (shown below).

I have seen the thread, but I just can't tell Did he geniunely just want to share his art with people? Did he try to create a new meme? Was it a ploy to destroy Wojak from the inside out?

We have his Twitter, DeviantArt and a couple other networks he's on.

On February 6th, 2018, a thread titled "Nu-Wojak Discussion" was submitted to the /qa/ (Question & Answer) board on 4chan,[5] which featured several reskinned variations of the character.[5]
