I just looked at some of "their" other designs, and found this gem.

Congratulations Einstein. They're all stolen, except the ones that say "FADED" with no pictures attached.

Also, OP, why were you visiting such a douchy site in the first place?

i was looking through my friends' followers on instagram and i noticed it

What the flying fuck man. So this site is nothing but a bunch of random stolen slightly obscure artwork, being sold on t-shirts for the sake of making money?

Why haven't these assholes been shutdown and taken to court over and over yet?

Only reason I say obscure is because it's not obvious things that non internet savvy people would understand is stolen. And it still amazes me how many people out there don't have -any- internet culture except what they see on TV

Making artwork tees and selling them for profit is a cool idea. Stealing others artwork, slapping it on a tee without permission and making profit is fucked up. I hope this garbage site gets shut down.

Literally all they did was remove the reflected city in the Tankman's visor. And they thought they could get away with it. Dumb shits.

I contacted them through their web form. If they don't stop using the Tankman as their logo, I'll see about getting their Facebook and Twitter pages shut down next. Feel free to point out their stolen logo on their Facebook wall:

I doubt anything will come of it Tom. I bet you will get a response something along the lines of what the OP got. "It's very similar, but it's100% original to our own" BS. So yea, I look forward to you taking them down. Keep us posted, would ya?

200 tankmen? I wonder where they found those?

Also where did they get the brilliant idea that the Tankman was a robot?

That guy is an actual rep of the company? I just assumed that the logo thief was some sleazy designer, but it looks like a lot more people are to blame.

Most of their designs are just terrible knock-offs of other brand names.

Lay off the drugs. I can find 200 robots that look similar. Not exact by any means

I just realized what he did there. He's saying that because he found a few Tankmen drawings on the web, he has the right to use it as his logo. That's the same thing as me taking the Half-Life lambda, redrawing it and selling it as my own logo.

I'd love to see this guy taken down/sued soon.

They'll probably say it's theirs because they drew a white outline around it. Why don't you link him here so we can discuss it with him in person?
