I’ll be adding to it as much as I can despite having a 10-hour shift from work, 6 days a week because I need to stop whining and actually start earning so I can invest enough cash to start printing these little bastards on t-shirts.
so-comeandfuckingget-us asked: I LOVE your stuff on here! Really it's awesome and I'm sorry about the Jonny Craig thing.. I don't know what to say? Hopefully he'll realize what the fuck he's doing? Anyway you're great:)
Aw! I really appreciate the feedback, support, and all. Thank you! :”)
As much as I want to do something about that, I really can’t unfortunately :( Or at least not right now, maybe. All I can say though about it is that it’s not gonna stop me from making more of these. I love what I do, and I’m not gonna let little assholes like them bring me down.
An excerpt from one of A Day To Remember’s songs and probably my most favorite line in every song I’ve heard from them because this speaks only so much about keeping your head leveled down whether you’re someone famous or some kid in a small town wanting to change the world someday.
So, basically, I’m currently making this ongoing series of illustrations of where band members have one of their well-known tweets (and/or anything they’ve put or shared on twitter, or I’ve found inspirational) scribbled on their faces.
This is the first time that this has happened to me so.. I don’t really know how to react. Except maybe get mad, naturally.
This won’t be a long ass rant so. But I am mad. I mean, I was honestly—to say the least—flattered too at first that he took interest in my work! And I don’t want to sound like I’m dissing Jonny or anything and.. believe me, I admire the fella (a lot!) and respect him for his works and his really gifted voice but, come on, blatantly ripping off someone else’s work (whom they exerted effort into making) for your own gain is just.. unfair. I know that word has been said again and again with similar situations regarding art theft but..
I’m not asking for anything. And I know I wouldn’t be able to do anything from my end considering the fact that I live halfway across the world from where he’s at right now and that I don’t have the resources to pay for a copyrighter and an attorney to settle this legally.
I really don’t know what to do.
I’m just.. I’m just asking for him to recognize my work. And for him and people to realize that what he’s doing is wrong.
