spot the difference


While we are on the subject of copies, check out My Graphic Garden's blatant rip off of my Bloom girl (plus there were more!) I approached them via email to point this out only to receive the rudest email in reply. I thought about posting their response but basically they said "whilst I do acknowledge similarities, there are significant differences". There you go peeps just copy someone's work, change it slightly and make some cash. Not so funny.

I'm so sad to see this. As a designer I've looked up to MGG thinking they had such great talent but this isn't the first time I've seen their illustrations somewhere else :(

If it's any consolation, your Bloom gal looks 100 times better!

Hi Neryl... this is shocking! Just had a look at their site... this situation makes their 'philosophy' section somewhat laughable.

At the very least you should post this on http://youthoughtwewouldntnotice.com/
for a little personal satisfaction :)

dude - F those bastards. i'mma hafta look them up so I can not support their art. I'm kinda confused about the name though - is that one of those too cool for school nameless monickers? like "I dream of cash mountains" or that weird symbol prince used.

oooh wait - i have one too ->
