On Plagrism, Stolen Artworks and Sharing Your Work On The Internet

I understand that big companies stealing work off the web or plagiarizing other people’s work hasn’t been something new, I’m sure plenty of artists have been the similar position and been told “you shouldn’t share works on the internet cause then people can take it”

With that, I reacted with: Do you take food from a store just because it’s there?

Robbery is robbery… and when you dismiss people for taking other people’s work you’re saying it’s okay.

While the internet has definitely given us infinite possibilities of instant sharing and connecting, it definitely has it’s downside, which is this, artworks being stolen from artists to use freely.

I’m sure that whatever I’ve thought or felt has been expressed before, so I won’t continue to go on a lengthy rant.

my friend sent this to me today, she spotted it printed as a campaign by a local television company…..

 tremendously familiar, no? 

imitation is sincerest form of flattery, i suppose.

I’m happy to announce that I now can offer certain artworks of mine as art prints!

However, I currently can only cater to MALAYSIA ORDERS for the time being. I should be able to set up my international shipping and actual working shop in August if I collect enough revenue and can manage properly but fret not, most of you still can get most of my things off the society6 store if you live everywhere else. (but fret not, there’s a lot in store coming for rocketrictic, i.e those patterns you keep seeing me posting)

For all the details on how to place in your orders are here.

Your support means a lot to me and every purchase you make sustains me as an independent designer, so thank you!

some new pattern work that i’m proud of, i’m catching this pattern thing pretty quick.

(also sadly have to start watermarking my work. tl;dr a radio station stole my artwork last week but thanks to a lot of my friends they removed it off their facebook)

  • Waitress: do you have any questions about the menu?
  • Me: what kind of font is this?

I had a no bag phase from 2011-2013, where I wouldn’t bring a bag when I had to leave the house. All I did was bring a book I was reading at the time and I would put in certain cards in certain pages and cash at the front or back of the book or just in my pockets. Everything will be stuffed into my jeans or the book.

My friends were deeply astounded by this.

I also did this cause I couldn’t find a wallet I had like or want to use at the time.

I also got a lot reading done in the time of the phase cause I took the bus and train. With the book being out and not stuffed in a bag I would read it. 

Lifehack I suppose?
