got a bit of a shock saturday night when i was istock looking for some photos to buy for a brochure i am doing...i came across an EXACT rip off of my christmas card that was published on print and pattern last december. it wasn't a coincidence- it was a blaten rip off. it made me quite deflated...i (like a lot of you im sure) am trying to get my name out there as a respected graphic designer/illustrator. to see your work being copied and then sold as someone else's is terrible and it made me not want to share my work on public sites anymore. it is all ok now and the images have been taken off istock. anyway- i will continue to share and show my work, as i enjoy doing it- but gee it made me think twice about trusting absolutely everyone...and in saying that- here is a drawing i have been working on today!
