“Since I moved here, I started working on a series entitled "Abstract Canada." The main idea behind it is looking at Canada with foreign eyes and expectations—French ones in my case—and realizing the most common things can look very strange due to the slight twisty differences compared to what I’m used to seeing everyday in France. Like, when you stare at an object for a long time on acid and it starts looking so weird and unreal, or when you repeat the same word until it sounds like a meaningless pure form.”

So, I took the last post down cause I figured, hey- what’s the point in complaining about people stealing my work, but you know what? I should’ve kept it up. Here are two prime examples of what I’m constantly frustrated about, and why I’m even bothering with making this public. My original work is on the left, the copied versions done by other people are on the right. I come across my work constantly being used by others and not one hint of credit is ever put my way. People tattooing my designs, selling zines/patches with my flash in/on them, and all while claiming it’s theirs. I am flattered that people are even interested in what I create, using my flash, but to steal it flat out and not even have the respect to credit me is always rough feeling. 
Perhaps I’m soft, but what ever happened to common courtesy or respect? No photographer wants their photos replicated, and no painter or any artist wants to see their work copied either. If you reference them, you credit them. It’s the same in tattooing and that’s why I’m writing this.

Credit goes to where credit is earned. 
Respect the people you reference or copy and credit them. slowerblack:
