Unintentional, so fuck it, leave it up. It's not like you did a lame cassete tape poster or one with Johnny Cash flipping the bird. Diregard the unintentional similarity here, and you've done a fine job. Grow some thicker skin. Anybody that talks shit, just send 'em a turd in the mail.
90% of the posters here are all the same (spaceman pickle with a gun up it's butt, three-boobed cue ball headed girl riding a toaster, big pointless face with sharp teeth and one eye, snake for a tongue) so don't sweat it. you will have plenty more opportunity to re-invent the flat tire. so sit back and relax.
if anything, you all should be picking up this book "Genius Moves" and realizing the same stuff happens, EVERYWHERE. i won't post the link, because clay will blast it. But it should make you feel better, and add a killer hardbound to your library.
don't sweat it. it happens to everyone. sorry to point it out. i just remembered seeing it. didn't say it was bad or good. just knew i saw it or a similar version. you should be stoked you didn't see it. the ones that do see stuff and snag it for their own are the ones people should nab. -cheer up charlie
Yeah but say I direct somebody to my portfolio via this site and they look and see this poster and say I've something similar to that before and they think this guy just rips off other peoples work. I am not going to be able to explain it was an honest mistake to everyone.
And as stated "it's fucking boring anyways". So its not aiding my reputation in an manner.
I think I am going to have Clay pull it. It would make me feel knowing if people see this poster and fail to read the comments that they won't think I ripped off someone else poster.
Has everyone got there comments in because Clay said he would pull it.
I still feel like shit and have asked Clay to pull it.
I wasn't that happy with it anyway the venue fucked it up with a bunch of changes.
I am PMing the people who made the Bright Eyes poster to let them know it was not my intention to copy their poster and that I have not and will not profit from it.
I feel terrible. If this wasn't already printed I would trash it. I have never seen the Bright Eyes poster. If I would have I never would have done this. If there's a way to pull this off the site I'll do it.
I have no intention to sell this or keep it in my portfolio now.
I feel really fucking shitty now, but I promise it was a coincidence.
