Hey, I'm Ryan (RustyEight), and I draw skulls. Well, I'm learning how to anyway. Instead of just doing this by myself, I want to share my progress with you. So follow me, we'll have a blast.
For those of you involved in the art industry, you know how hard it is to preserve your work… especially if its on the internet. People will take it, use it, sell it, all without credit or payment to the creator. Some people don’t realize what they are doing is wrong.
Brandon Day of Invocation Clothing, from Pikeville, KY isn’t one of those people.
He has been caught stealing designs from several artists and selling them as his own… both through his clothing line and freelance to bands. He’s also been known to steal the code straight off other websites and claim it as his own as well.
The evidence can be found at:
Also, check out Fuck You Ripper… a sweet tumblr account set up to expose people like this and black list them.
Don’t bother trying to find the designs he’s stolen anywhere. He’s very good at deleting them as soon as he’s found out. He’s deleted all reference to them from his Tumblr, deleted his Twitter and Facebook accounts, and even took down his online store (previously at http://invocation.bigcartel.com/ ) I’m sure some of you could wrangle up some Google kung fu and find them.
I’m pretty surprised by the type of progress I’ve made on these past few skulls. Although still not where I want to be, I’m having more fun with the design of them. I still have some anatomy issues, but I’m working on those piece by piece.
So I think I’m gonna start going through my old skull illy’s and re-illustrate some of them. It’ll be fun to compare then to now I think.
Long story short, I moved. I don’t have the internet at my apartment right now… and I don’t have time to draw skulls at work anymore.
I’ll get back to it, I swear.
