I was looking for image references for a new Balinese Mask design to go with the rework I've done on S6. Low and behold there's mine in my image search.

Tsk tsk. I just posted some links to the original pieces on their page. They nicked Hector's, eric Fan's, Teagan White and god knows who elses.

Nice spot.

I think that most of those designs were ripped from S6.

It really pisses me off, where the hell are they getting artwork good enough to print from? I think most S6 previews are around 600px square.

Sad to see, as artists we spend so much time on works, and on a lot of them we hardly make a dime.... and then some prick comes by and rips us off.

@Quick-brown-fox: They buy a print of s6 and scan it?

I'm guess that if you buy an art print, like A3 format then scan it, and go through DTG kind of process, the lil' punks can manage it. Warf at what he did with Eric's Beatles, just swapping placement of the beatles… Sorry ass!

It makes me not want to sell stuff on Society6. I know it goes on all the time, and if it's a market stall in Thailand it doesn't feel as bad for some reason.

It's a good thing that the community points them out when they find them though. Especially for the big outlets (saw those posts about Clavin Klein and a big brand in argentina).

I see one of my wolves on there, too. I posted a nasty message below the stolen artwork. They have an open FB page so you can do that. Usually a threatening email does the trick. I just convinced FineArtAmerica to delete two owls that were directly copied from me. They asked me to contact the "artist" first, though, and when I made no progress with her, they deleted them. She actually had written in her description of the stolen work "one of my many owl drawings" which I thought was so gross.

I can't believe he's deleted all of our comments, what an asshole. He seems completely remorseless. Is there any way of flagging his page to Facebook and having it deleted.

Yep… did it. Besides the like button there's the little arrow with a scroller, and check "signal this" or whatever the english word is for it…

what option did you guys select for reporting it on FB - none of them seem to faul under the fraud category!

Wharton

'Faul'? I put it under 'its a spam or a scam'.

Theres also a link at the bottom of the window 'Is this your intellectual property?'.

Guessing only the designers who have their work stolen can pick that specific one. The french version has " fraud" in the options though.

Tosser. Hector said he was getting in touch with Threadless about it. I noticed that Eric's printed in GAP, so he's now ripping Eric, Threadless and a huge company. I'm changing the title of the thread.

Not sure the problem is S6, since this douche can buy prints or shirts on Threadless or elsewhere too. If he does DTG style of print, I think he can even do it from a shirt… The best is to keep on sending alerts like this and having more peeps signal him to Facebook as "fraud" & Threadless, Gap who can probably scare him off?

soloyo

I might send an e-mail to GAP

He works super fast. I just flooded his wall and photos with comments and links and now they're ALL gone...and I was blocked. But I reported him under "spam and scam" as well.

What sort of notice is that, other than a very public admittance of plagiarism?

I posted this on the Threadless Facebook page and it's being looked into. Take those mothers DOWN!

Bummer. Hard to stop stuff like this unfortunately. All they have to do is order a print and do a high res scan of it, assuming they can't find a high enough res image from the Internet.

I left them a little angry note at least. jerkfaces.
