I apologize for being in a bad mood today but a certain “Totally Creative Graphic Design Studio” totally ripped off one of my original artworks and is selling it on notepads, journals and other stationery in their store “Invitation House”. Tsk. My original design, a low-res image of which has been on Flickr and my Cafepress store since 2008 is on the left. The copycat’s “design” is on the right (watermarked with the statement “property of Invitation House” — Yeah, right!) A friend who was browsing the Invitation House stall in Trinoma gave me the heads up. I’ve already written the proprietor, Jess Marquez — who may or may not know that the design is a rip-off - and I certainly hope something will be done about this soon.
Please help me spread the word about it, thanks.
