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).
here you can see the original mermaids against misogyny design, made by fefarielle and posted almost exactly a year ago: [x]
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!
