Santo76

I think it´s fair to say it here too, and not only in the other sub...
And it´s the weirdest thing ever... two designs later this will show up
I like this one better... colors and details are awesome... but isn´t it the most bizzare coincidence ever??? I´mean, it´s not a unicorn... it´s a musical typewriter... :P

The scratchy/free-hand style is outrageous! I love all the tiny marks and details and textures. The piano keys fit perfectly and the concept is also good. Nice work! A+! 5

I feel like I shouldn't even dignify this with a response, but I will nonetheless...
I always try to do the appropriate searching before posting a design to avoid unknowingly ripping someone off as you so claim and did so before posting this one as well.

Linking to a poorly photoshopped image posted today from a threadless account created today doesn't add much credibility to your accusation, but thanks for your input.

this is very good. References are important, you transformed that picture (that lazer pointer linked) into a great design.

user2525

the concept rules. really retro and a little grungy. good job

AdderXYU

Even if there was a viable source to your "amazing" photoshop, there are a lot of differences here:

~This is drawn, and obviously so
~Outside of the concept, it is wholly different stylistically (which is to say, your brand of pianowriter would be manufactured by totally different guys, since they don't look alike)
~It has never been a shirt.

This doesn't even take into account the fact that there's no proof your presumed "original" existed before today. This is printing. Sorry.

AdderXYU

Well, sorry for you. Most of us will be quite happy for it.

sustici

Thanks guys!

nok_da2c

verry cool!!!!

CazKing

the concept is the same but this looks completely different to yours. If you have copyright issues you need to take them up with threadless as they own the design now. People come up with the same ideas all the time, that is just life, i think ur gonna have a hard time proving he stole this idea from you.

Hi Sean,

It is completely against my ethics to steal or rip off ideas from others. It is both detrimental to the expansion of my own creativity and shows a complete lack of respect to the original content creator as well as other artists / designers in general.

There is no denying that the concept is the same and I wouldn't attempt to do so, however, the art is on an album I've never seen nor heard of, by a band I've never heard of, on a label I've never heard of.

In brief, I've never seen your work, did not take the idea from you and, quite frankly, resent the accusation. I always try to do the appropriate searching before posting a design to avoid unknowingly ripping someone off as you so claim and did so before posting this one as well.

That being said, I can put myself in your shoes and understand your knee jerk reaction feeling you've been wronged, but that is just not the case here.

Best wishes, Matt Leyen

CazKing

Hey - I don't even know Ninth Wheel so there is no bias here. I just like his design. And how do you know he didn't draw it? This may not be my fight but I have a right to an opinion and in my opinion I don't think he copied you at all. I google my ideas too to see if they've already been done - everyone does that. People can come up with the same idea it happens all the time. I can see why you would think you have a case but I don't agree. Good luck to you.

NiNTH WHEEL

I have nothing to be embarrassed about nor any reason to apologize to you. As stated before, I've never seen any of your work and came up with the idea on my own.

No account?
