Artvoice, Hero Design, and Design Theft

Hero Design may just be my favorite company in this burg. Their posters are consistently awesome and the boutique on Allen has a great collection of Kid Robot etc. I mean, when was the last time you were featured in Spin Magazine? That's what I thought.

Their design work is so good in fact, that Artvoice has apparently stolen some. The post to which I link is a must read -- and the images tell the story.

Now, that just takes raw guts. Stealing art from a company just around the corner? Isn't the internet big enough to find something else to plagiarize?

Perhaps there is some kind of misunderstanding here. I have yet to hear AV's take on this story, and I look forward to it. From the Hero side, though, the whole thing reeks of laziness and hubris. That's right: not just regular old pride -- tragic-plot-starting hubris.

Zine?

Th'other day someone said to me "I like your zine". I certainly appreciated the compliment, but "zine"? I've always associated that term with collages of old magazine photos with anti-establishment text scrawled over them. I mean, I'm all for that and everything, but dang.

Fair's Fair

GF will be at this week's Buffalo Small Press Book Fair. Come on down and say "Hi".

This fair was sort of the catalyst for Greenfern. When I attended last year, I looked around and said "huh. so it is possible". I'm looking forward to being on the other side of the tables this year.

Here's another geeky webcomic railing against e-books. Should it strike me as odd that the hardcore nerds are anti? I'll bet it strikes Amazon that way.
