My day off, I spent it on the balcony working on this :) I’ve also been organizing assorted card packs and preparing stuff to set up in either an etsy or a bigcartel shop. Which store platform do you think is better?
A little background on Brandy Melville’s “elin moon tears embroidery top”.. it’s very popular, has been seen on numerous celebs and is available in twenty stores across 10 countries. What you may not know is that the design for this tee was stolen from me - an emerging artist trying to make a name for herself in Tasmania, Australia.
After contacting Brandy Melville I was confident that the issue would get resolved. However after months of chasing them for a resolution, all the while having faith in their professionalism, I must out them as a company that plagiarises and is making massive profit off someone else’s hard work and creative thinking - while no credit or financial compensation has been provided.
I can only fight back in the small ways that I can -
PLEASE SHARE AND LET BRANDY MELVILLE KNOW THAT NO MATTER HOW “SMALL” AN ARTIST MAY BE, THEY CAN NOT GET AWAY WITH INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY THEFT.
My “Constellation Bear” is complete! The original is for sale for $250 including a frame & shipping (in Canada), and you can also check him out on laptop skins, pillows, phones cases and more on my society 6 :)
ps, people were calling him pig bear because of his nose in the outline, lol. Does he still look like one now?
