Apologies to Mia Carr AKA miacarr

Sorry Mia,
You can find her subs here






...And a bunch of others.]


If anyone altered their votes based on what this blog used to be, I urge you to revisit and adjust your scoring.

It turns out that she is Luminarium graphics, and she should be scored fairly.

Well I guess the 2000 dollars make those persons feel good.

I sometimes use royalty free images from over 100 years old, and you could say that's good because the art is re-used, but it never gives any satisfaction of accomplishment though. And I rather have that feeling of being capable of something then 2000 dollars.

True. But rob a bank is much more honest (and profitable)

awesome illustrations, by the way...

And I think that's fine, ..if it's part of your image, not the entirety, ..or if you alter it enough, ...but not when it's just slapped onto something else and then presented as your own.

Yeah, absolutely, ..it's a huge pity that she can't use them here because of copyright.

and by 'huge pity' I mean 'it's not a pity, not even a little.'

I like to bring down evildoers. I sharpen my knives every night.

mechanical is always on top of these things. And I assume that there will always be people that do this and won't feel bad or anything. I just point it out to everyone else so they don't get fooled and move on.

saw the title, had to post this: (i think CPJ was before your time here)

i'll now go back and read what this is all about

FiCan

It's interesting that she's also included the Luminarium Graphics logo as part of the design (inside of the shirt neck). Unless this is the original artist who is selling these designs on Etsy, this is very uncool. Nice pickup.

Curious if anyone would consider notifying the artist on Etsy, or let Threadless take care of it?

Well that's you, and unfortunately not her. Threadless should just hire you to weed out submissions like this that shouldn't even be accepted. What bugs me the most about people that do this is that they have the audacity to call it ORIGINAL work.

Looking at how they used the logo - I'm going to guess that this is just an exercise in trying to use Threadless to promote their brand. I don't think anything malicious is going on here. I think it's more likely Mia is Luminarium.

As the resident taking-black-and-white-photos-to-make-strange-collages-expert, I wouldn't worry either way. Threadless doesn't take to printing our kind.

Yeah, it could be she is Luminarium graphics, ..a very weird way to word things though, ..saying that's where she sourced them

Mechanicalrobotpower, congrats on your spectacle of foolishness. Perhaps, it would have been more ethical if you had contacted the LuminariumGraphics etsy store owner (me) about this. Instead you decide to post a thread like this to get your own frustrations out. Shame on you.

Thank you croquehaus and FiCan, for your words wisdom, maybe robotpower can learn a thing or two with it.

To be fair, you could have stated that you were in fact LuminariumGraphics in the first place. Don't take it personally though! With thousands of designs rolling in there are plenty of genuine cheaters in the bunch too. So we tend to be a bit jumpy when something looks fishy.

Mexiblunt

alright miacarr don't rattle your pants, if anything he was trying to do a service to the community, this stuff happens all the time, maybe you should step down from your pedestal and try to see the good side of it. this is supposed to be nice and fair community... and he harmlessly thought he was doing good, don't go around calling people fools. Shame on you for your sarcastic bitter comments.

I did, but too late...How would you react? I just wonder if mechanicalrobotpower can apologize publicly for this, like I have on my part. I honestly don't care about "cheaters", that is between thredless and them in their own conscious. I'd maybe understand if threadless payed people to rat them out, otherwise why should they care, really?

fightstacy profile pic Alumni

I'm sorry Mia, I didn't realise you were the same person, ..you worded your descriptions (which is what this is all based on) that you'd sourced them from somewhere else.

I have since gone back over all your designs and scored them as fairly as I possibly could.

And suggest others do also!

My scores didn't change at all.

We care because on rare occasions a cheater gets a print. And that's always one less print for an honest artist.

Why care about cheaters? Because if that becomes a presence, this place will get icky.

Thank you, mechanicalrobotpower! Apology accepted and appreciated. :)

And again, i'm very sorry.
