Inspired by a recent experience I had with someone stealing my art and cropping out my URL. Dedicated to every artist who has had their art work stolen.
This is around the third comic I’ve seen with the same exact premise and comparisons and everything.
Good. It’s an important problem. I want this comic to be made 500,000 times until people stop fucking reposting and intentionally editing people’s work to take away credit.
When people do things like this it’s the biggest slap in the face you can get as an artist. When you put a lot of love and work into something you made and someone comes around to take it - even worse remove your credits, it really does hurt. Artists want credit because they put all the time, effort, and love into it to make it. Even if something is little, everyone deserves credit for something they created themselves. We can’t even count how many times it’s happened to us, and it even still does, with both our art and animations. Yeah, we post it on the internet and that means anyone can see it and anything can happen to it - but that doesn’t make it ok.
