2 weeks ago I created a parody image of “The Hound” from #GameofThones as the KFC logo after the widely viewed premiere of the new season. The image was spread around on Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook and re-shops of it even reached the front page of Reddit. It was cool to see something I made get so much attention, though I was rarely ever credited for making the design. A small indie shirt company, LeRage Shirts approached me to make a shirt of the design where I would get get some commission per shirt sold, I was excited at the idea and we started selling t-shirts of my design on their online store. The next week, I made a new design saying “F*CK THE KING” as a parody of the classic Sex Pistols shirt. LeRage Shirts loved both designs and have been selling shirts via word of mouth online.While selling my artwork in Artist Alley this weekend at #WonderCon in Anaheim, CA, friends of mine were texting me saying “This site jacked your design!” When I went to look at the BustedTees site, they have knock-offs of both T-shirts I had created for LeRage. Both! For a company that boasts connections with so many comedians and original writers to create their shirts, they obviously got lazy and stole BOTH of my parody design ideas to make theirs. Busted indeed.Things like this happen often. Huge companies like Busted Tees steal popular ideas from smaller companies for profit. I don’t care for lawsuits, but I do want anyone that purchases from Busted Tees to know that they steal hard working artists’ ideas to sell shirts. It’s not right and the least I could do is say my piece. If you like my shirt designs you can get them both from LeRageShirts.comhttp://lerageshirts.com/product/hfc-hound-fried-chicken-shirt/#a_aid=rocomhttp://lerageshirts.com/product/fuck-the-king-shirt-game-of-thrones/#a_aid=rocomYou can also comment the shirts on Busted’s site to let them know they’re selling stolen designs here:http://www.bustedtees.com/hfchttp://www.bustedtees.com/godsavethekingPlease share this on Twitter, Facebook, your blog and so on.
