PLEASE DON’T BUY THESE PRODUCTS

lookhuman.com is a website that is currently selling two designs that are closely ripped off of phrases that i coined and popularized on my sideblog, fuckyeahsubversivekawaii, and on this blog. while they haven’t directly stolen my art or the art of my co-mod on FYSK, it’s very clear after browsing the rest of their merchandise that they get all their material by stealing ideas and phrases from popular tumblr posts and art.

i’ve decided not to take any kind of legal action. i know that the phrases are mine (and my co-mod’s, in the case of mermaids against misogyny), and you guys know that the phrases are ours, but there really isn’t much i can do besides post links to prove that my versions of these designs were up far, far sooner than these items were made (which i will do shortly.)

all i can do is ask you guys not to support this store. they are intellectual thieves (and shoddy activists - the vast majority of their merch is printed on american apparel products, which is funny when they’re selling “feminist” slogans).

here you can see the original mermaids against misogyny design, made by fefarielle and posted almost exactly a year ago: [x]

and here’s the original sketch of my “dead men don’t catcall” design, posted on FYSK in june of 2013: [x]

along with the finished illustration which was posted in october: [x]

if you would like to purchase items with the dead men don’t catcall illustration, you can get them at my cafepress (where all the items are responsibly sourced.) i also have an etsy connected to FYSK, and i hope to offer more pinback buttons (including mermaids against misogyny ones!) by the end of the week.

thank you for your time, and sorry for stretching your dashes!

Hmmm someone else being ripped by Rad Fortress’ parent company Print Syndicate LLC. 

Don’t fucking support this shit. Fuck Print Syndicate. Fuck Look Human and Fuck Rad Fortress.

Hey I think Star Wars looks a lot Buck Rodgers. We should boycott that too. When you make stuff based on pop culture and for the masses, there's no way your stuff is going to be original. Chillax, but keep making art, dude.

This attitude of “Everything’s a remix, nothing’s original” is so fucking stupid and fuck anyone who thinks this way.

There’s a difference between commenting on pop culture (Like say, trivializing religion/the occult by mocking it’s imagery with something as silly as pizza) and straight up drawing YOUR VERSION of someones ideas. Bart Simpson on a skateboard but his face is a pizza isn’t doing anything but saying “Hey people already like the Simpsons, and they like pizza, SO LETS SELL THAT ON A SHIRT” 

I see way too many artists on the internet gain popularity and even fucking get gallery shows because they draw clever pictures of characters THEY ALREADY FUCKING LOVE ANYWAY. It’s pretty easy to sell a print or t-shirt when you have a built in audience from the fucking get go. 

"But all you draw is pizza related things, and everyone already loves pizza so you’re a big hypocrite, fuck you, fatty!”

True, people love pizza. BUT PIZZA’S CURRENT FORM HAS BEEN AROUND FOR ALMOST 200 YEARS! Simpsons isn’t even 30 years old. The kind of “pop culture” referenced art that features popular characters and ideas from recent memory only really serves as nostalgia to ultimately make money for those producing it. Millhouse in blackface and labeled “TRILLHOUSE” on a $25 t-shirt by some white dude in Ohio isn’t commentary. It’s a borderline racist attempt to make some quick cash. 

Also, chillax isn’t a real fucking word. Fuck off.  

RAD FORTRESS rip off ideas from Tumblr to sell expensive shirts. Scan their t-shirt section and you’ll basically see a recap of internet memes and unoriginal, rehashed ideas. Pizza Hutt? Space Balls much?? 

My original post: http://sillypantsart.tumblr.com/post/47971905879/hail-pizzaI know the satanism/pizza thing has been done to death but I made sure this idea wasn’t around before I went ahead and drew it. This piece represents my art at its core: Silly/sacrilegious/pizza fueled and down right dumb! When I emailed  them about the matter they just unfollowed me on Tumblr and did not respond. So, now I gotta resort to this.
