This unbelievable little girl sings the greatest cover of “Imagine” I’ve ever heard, how does this have under 200 views
Tangled comparisons - concept art to the final film.
why the fuck is the concept art so much better
So wish it was done like the concept. Wasn’t this how Glen Keane wanted to do the movie when he was director?
Yes, I heard he wanted it to be “An oil painting in motion.”
Which is freakin beautiful
Edward Hopper, Boy and Moon (1906-1907)
One of the number one reason why I love Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra so much: the fact that the creators actually consulted experts in Asian culture and martial arts (and you’ll notice that they consulted mixed martial arts experts too for the pro-bending techniques in Korra). It would’ve been so easy for them to just serve us up a lazy, stereotypical bullshit with random Chinese words that are completely inaccurate, but Bryan and Mike actually cared enough about being accurate and respectful of Asian culture not to do so.
PLEASE DON’T BUY THESE PRODUCTS
lookhuman.com is a website that is currently selling two designs that are closely ripped off of phrases that i coined and popularized on my sideblog, fuckyeahsubversivekawaii, and on this blog. while they haven’t directly stolen my art or the art of my co-mod on FYSK, it’s very clear after browsing the rest of their merchandise that they get all their material by stealing ideas and phrases from popular tumblr posts and art.
i’ve decided not to take any kind of legal action. i know that the phrases are mine (and my co-mod’s, in the case of mermaids against misogyny), and you guys know that the phrases are ours, but there really isn’t much i can do besides post links to prove that my versions of these designs were up far, far sooner than these items were made (which i will do shortly.)
all i can do is ask you guys not to support this store. they are intellectual thieves (and shoddy activists - the vast majority of their merch is printed on american apparel products, which is funny when they’re selling “feminist” slogans).
and here’s the original sketch of my “dead men don’t catcall” design, posted on FYSK in june of 2013: [x]
along with the finished illustration which was posted in october: [x]
if you would like to purchase items with the dead men don’t catcall illustration, you can get them at my cafepress (where all the items are responsibly sourced.) i also have an etsy connected to FYSK, and i hope to offer more pinback buttons (including mermaids against misogyny ones!) by the end of the week.
thank you for your time, and sorry for stretching your dashes!
Does this mean its illegal to make merchandise out of memes?
After all those all originated from one creator (I mean…not the same creator, of coarse)
Does that give them ownership over the image and joke associated with it?
I’ve always interpreted quotes as public domain. You print famous quotes on anything you want. A text post is basically a quote. Is it unoriginal that you’re ripping off someone else’s idea? Yes.
But most marketable things tend to do that. Like a bunch of lemmings, they make as much merchandise they can in the short time frame a quote or image or joke is relevant.
I understand what this person is trying to do here but at the same time I don’t really see a point?
Should I sew someone for plagiarism for not citing Calico Jack the pirate when they paraphrased his “dead men tell no tales” quote?Edit: the argument is stronger for visuals especially when you compare the cat call pictures. I was just trying to provoke thought for quotes. Btw I’m not patting the designers of this merchandise on the back. I DO think they’re unoriginal and just take what seems popular and sell it. This will always happen in merchandising though, in the same way people draw and recreate things they see and like. I don’t think it’s necessarily wrong, but It’s not creative or original, so I don’t like it.
