rip off

I gave an interview last month and one topic we touched upon was artists "borrowing" from other artists. My view is that finding inspiration from other works is normal and expected, although making a copy is not cool. Example... comic from May 2010, my photo from June 2008.








































Patrick, If you are going to rip off my photo for your comic at least you could have drawn it better! You did make a little effort by switching the position of the characters... douche.

I couldn't agree more. I refuse to believe that originality in art is dead, but when I see a blatant rip off like this I start to lose hope. How shameful...
