One of my biggest pet peeves in clicking on a website, opening up a magazine, or looking at a window display, and seeing that one artist has ripped off another artist. Enough already! Get original. Find yourself. I get that we find inspiration in other peoples work, but there's a difference between being inspired and straight ripping someone off. It's pointless to point fingers and throw names around, bc you know who you are, or should. Keep it real. Be inspired, don't steal. It's tacky, and disrespectful.
I rarely get upset, but it heavily disappoints me to see great artists working so hard, just to be ripped off and looked over.
