    Default Are you irritated that your posters are being appropriated/sold as "edgy" wallets?

    My friend was walking through Hayes Valley in SF - she's sharp as a tack - she snapped this picture because she recognized a poster that I did, recreated as a pricey wallet for sale at a store called Duke et Duchess.

    Here is a link to the picture - can't imbed:
    Fan photos from Idiot or Genius? Design & Screen Printing | Facebook

    The people making the wallets are, bizarrely enough, difficult to track down, so I have made friendly but probably annoying overtures towards the store manager to get their contact info.

    The wallet makers/people laser printing posters straight off GP (or wherever else) so that clueless wealthy fucks everywhere can purchase these urban, gritty accessories are called Chun and Dahl.

    If you recognize the other work here, please lemme know/put the artist in touch with me. (Obviously, the entire body of Chun and Dahl's work is probably not available in this single window display.)

    Sometimes, it isn't worth the trouble to try to do anything about life's minor injustices, but unfortunately for those around me, I guess I enjoy making people miserable until they give in to me - and I feel like I should direct that towards Chun and Dahl. I'll let you know how it goes.

    OOh, that's an excellent idea. They already HAVE lawyers; I can only squawk around about how I'm GOING to get a lawyer and hope like hell someone is clueless enough to think I really will.

    I don't know if alibaba.com has any kind of rules. It's pretty much a place to go get cheap shit made or to find cheap shit already being made in the third world.
