We all know this fox

Hello.

Some time ago I walked through the city at night and noticed a new shop called “Silberfuchs” (silverfox). Found in Offenbach, Germany

And it’s mascott seemed really familiar. It’s Tails from the videogame series Sonic which is used/traced.

I tend to just call the shop and say I work at Sega and would like to talk to their buisness managment, or call a horde of Sonic fantards and unleash ‘em. But I guess I leave the fun to Sega itself. If it’s even worth… Would you recomand to just mail the german Sega support team?

OldSkool Ripoff-1992/1998

In 1998, a label company called TIME released a ”12 single called “YUMIKO”, by a group named Anime.
On the included lyrics booklet, this can be seen:

Does the image of the boy remind you of a certain 1992 anime character?

Mamoru Chiba, from Sailor Moon-1992, TOEI Animation/Naoko Takeuchi<a

It’s Mamoru Chiba, from 1992′s Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon series! Yes, his clothes are recolored, but it’s him, down to the tuft of hair that always sticks up from his head!

I came across this on a forum and had to do a double-take. I then researched “Mamoru Chiba” in Google and…well…..they look exactly the same, save for the art style! Shame on the artist who tried to pass this off as original!

The single was released 2 years AFTER BSSM stopped airing in its place of orgin, Japan. And no, it doesn’t matter that this phony was released in Italy; there was an Italian dub.

Your thoughts?

once again, Kelly Hyatt and Lagom – you decide


the top image is by me, Verity Keniger, the bottom image is by Kelly Hyatt at Lagom for their Zootown range of cards. incidentally, this isn’t the first time they have made it onto YTWWN – http://youthoughtwewouldntnotice.com/blog3/?s=kelly+hyatt. I have been in contact with Kelly and he has denied copying my image in any way. I’ll let you decide…

I have written a more detailed account of the situation and Kelly Hyatt’s / Lagom’s contemtible behaviour on my blog – http://uhohdeer.blogspot.com/2010/08/grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrumble.html

Photoshop Fail..

So i was just looking at ipod nano decals on ebay today when i came across this specific skin-

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/New-3rd-Gen-iPod-NANO-3-Sticker-Skin-Feather-Theme-/270627907232?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories#ht_2458wt_931

I looked at the feathers on the back and i automatically thought of the Photoshop Logo and how it has a blue/green feather on it.

A quick google and i was able to find the exact image used on the back of the decal on the first page of searching “Adobe Photoshop Feather”
