    Think the clip art is nice.

    Miley Cyrus covered Stevie Nicks’ old classic “Landslide” during the course of a performance in Brisbane, Australia on Sunday.

    Adi are just doing something because it’s hip and cool, like pretty much all brands that follow and ‘react’ to trends.

    I think it looks cool and as stated above, they aint ripping anything that hasn’t been ripped a million times before.

    To be honest I got more of a problem with ANYONE that uses fucking clip art as the base for their logo.

    It’s the identical logo with nothing changed because it’s clip art.

    I’d have to disagree. This ‘logo’ is widely available in Dia De Los Muertos clip art-type books from dover etc. Inasmuch that you thought you were the only ones using a DDLM concept, that would be quite flawed too.
    This art has a history of being plundered since the 80′s (see Stussy, Gary Panter, Oingo Boingo etc).
    Again get some original references and you won’t be crying wolf when someone ‘steals”your’ art.

    Both of them are based on sugar skulls from day of the dead. they dont look like eachother at all. Both are generic

    Although traditional in theme, I wouldn’t say this mark is traditional by any means. It’s a little to modern and unique if you compare it to traditional pieces especially the over saturated “skull” Dia De Los Muertos stuff you find saturating the industry. Good thing these guy’s were doing this 5-10 years ago…….

    all the best
