what i want to know is how a skinny little nerdy guy like jason austin is able to directly steal credit from all of these big fine strapping texans and not get the shit beat out of him again and again?
seems to me there's some misunderstanding going on here.
are any of you guys familiar with the 'studio' system in art and design? it's where the name of the studio goes on the piece, even if it's another guy's name. it's how it works and always has. there are laws to support it. the art belongs to the studio, not the individual. many famous design studios are headed by guys who are retired or dead. their name still goes on the work. that's how it is.
is that the situation we're looking at? did jason run a studio setup and piss off a bunch of folks because they didn't get it?
geez, there are people i've known who built their entire careers on styles and clients i had to essentially give away to them. and they are still my friends, even though they cost me tens of thousands (or more) of dollars and untold misery and hurt.
he burned somebody? how? it must have been really bad over and over again in order to engender such dislike.
i've been burned by many many of the folks on this site. but the only ones that i hold the grudge against are the ones who burned me so many many times over such a long period of time that i just have to draw the line. then they are "out the door" and that's that.
