hey I’ve seen a couple of artists around recently who look like they’re copying your style pretty heavily…should I say something to them or link you to them so you can handle it?
I really appreciate you guys letting me know if you see my art being reposted or sold, but please don’t worry or feel like you need to speak up if you see someone with a similar style. There’s a good chance that they weren’t even inspired by my work–they could be emulating a different artist or even have just come up with something similar on their own! And if they actually are imitating my style, that makes me happy. A lot of artists, especially young ones, try out elements of other artists’ styles while they’re developing their own (I know I did!), and I would never want to punish/discourage anyone because they were inspired by my work. So it’s all good! Even if they do stuff in a similar style, it’s still their work and I’m proud of ‘em and want them to keep exploring their style!
