Stealing the Castle

I made a gigposter for Of Montreal last year, and a month or so ago posted a smaller art print (8″ x 10″) version of the work on my flickr page.

A fellow poster maker spotted the image online, apparently promoting a Texas music festival called Connect the Dots. They just slapped some text on it and turned it into a flier.

Ugh. I have sent messages to all the bands and the festival (all of them have it as their myspace profile pic) in hopes that they will take it down and stop actin’ a fool.
