One second...

Am I being paranoid?

Mine:



This guy's, posted a few days after mine:



Probably unrelated, but then, mine:



This guy's, posted just about an hour ago:



And he promoted both of mine on Society6, so there isn't a chance of him not seeing them.


Oh, and I forgot, when I reached 1000 followers on S& I made this:



When he reached 1000 followers he made this:



Now this one doesn't bother me at all, I'm fine with other people doing something similar in this front; but it might help show that he could be drafting off my ideas.

I think the sea one is different enough to not be a problem if it were a one off incident. I would say it could be a coincident. However the second one is a straight forward case of plagiarism and the punishment should be death by sword.

i dunno. it's tough to call since "infinity blade" is a thing and it's possible two people would have the same idea. the other one could also be coincidental, but if they're both by the same user that does make it more likely he's been looking through your stuff and he's going to try and become you like Single White Female.

I was about to say that QBF. Some of his other works look familiar to me but I can’t place them.

Glad it's not just me. There's a lion and a vinyl record that reminded me of Alice's work.

ivanrodero

Well he's a regular here too:

Steven T

So he's probably just influenced by the Threadless vibe... people focusing on the same things tend to think alike, or he is just clever enough to pick ideas of others and change then enough so it's hard enough to call it a rip, I still hate when they do this...

the third bit convinced me. he loves you and has no imagination.

like the others - individually i'd say no, but as a collective it does seem like he's trailing in your wake picking up your ideas. it's a nice compliment but a bit shitty if he's more successful with them (eg the society6 home page)

his style is all over the place as well which can imply he's mimicking others. nothing wrong with that in itself - overall he's got some really nice work and some great skills - but if the ideas aren't his in the first place....

This. He clearly has technical skills, but he's far from having a cohesive style, which isn't bad but can seem kinda fishy in situations like this.

Hi,againstbound. I just have something to say here, To be inspired or inspired by someone. Ideas are came from everywhere, to me just to explore and re-create,just I like say it inspired by someone. I also want thanks everyone that share their opinion and views of point about design and ideas.

heykimby

Steven, everyone needs inspiration, but it's not fair to take it so directly from someone else's work, especially with the intent to make money from it. It's certainly pushing the boundaries of copyright law...

Man, that kinda sounds like you're ripping and you know you're ripping.

You do know it's not cool to just take other people's ideas and pass them at your own? To the very Least you could credit your sources.

Erm being 'inspired' and 're-creating' it are two very different things.

The guy obviously don't like to strain his brain with new ideas which is a shame, you can see he has a talent but it's useless when you're just copying others...

It sounds like he hasn't a clue how the design world works
