My friend Rara is currently in jail for for something she didn’t do. It’s hard for me to accept that the fight is over and that giving in is an option. Her words in this blog post have helped me and can explain what’s going on.

Thanks,

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.

I finally read Volume 1 of Injustice: Gods Among Us yesterday. I went cover to cover without putting it down. I already had a loose knowledge of the story from playing the video game, but it has so much more emotion and depth than the fighter could have offered. Been hearing good things about it for so long and it lived up to all of the hype.

luisvsthegalaxy said: Hey do you remember that song you did for this machinma called "Split '79"? "Sleep On Dream" I think it was called but did you ever release it?

Yes, that song was incorrectly labeled on the video. The song is called “Like A Broken Record” and it’s available on the album “I Am Rocom” which is on iTunes and AmazonMP3

For those that haven’t seen the trailer, you can view it HERE.

I posted about this film a while back. Its finally coming out to theaters. Easily the most honest portrayal of D&D fandom and just an overall great movie. The antagonist in this movie is what I predict Chris Hardwick to be like in real life. An asshole.

David Arquette and Troian Bellisario join cast of action movie ‘Chuck Hank and the San Diego Twins
Nice write-up about the side-scrolling video game inspired movie that I’ve been working on design for.
