I had a similar problem with Conversation Agency. They lifted an image of one of my drawings and uploaded it without bothering to credit me as the artist.

i'm sure i've posted a few things and neglected to give due credit, but EIGHT photos in one post?

Thank you for this cautionary tale. Jamie O'Shea sounds like a real douchebag. I will continue to post my shitty comics and digital photos on my blog knowing that no one will EVER steal them.

Dear Artists,
It is with great pleasure that inform you, that your artworks you had once considered your little babies, have now grown up, and they will go out into the world and do as they please.

nate, i'm not sure what you mean, but it doesn't matter.

tell us... are you really twenty-two? are you cool? can you help us meet other hip kids?

nwh said...

i'm actually not sure anymore how you (nate) ended up on this post or what you were commenting on, but i need to stress to you that it is of the UTMOST IMPORTANCE that you check this blog several times a day if you want to stay cool.

Martin said...

oh wait. maybe you were commenting on barnaby's being on paintersnyc?

nwh said...

oh cool, that makes sense, but i didnt read the review though. i like the internet stuff more i guess.
i think your blog is in my reader though, because it keeps popping up when you post something.

cheers!

My balding pic was swiped from 31G's gallery 'gal's flickr page.

He called Maureen a muse. It worked in that case.

hey you at Supertouch, when you use pics from flick’r for your article, you can link your source and tell everybody that you are not the author of the pics…
That’s what is called integrity and honesty.

i worked with him years ago. Was a douche then. Glad to see he's consistent.

I used to work with that guy too. His pants made me want to kill myself. He's one of the reasons I quit.

sketchypad said...

I've got the same issues with Jamie. His most recent post about the surprise Barry McGee show in San Francisco has all my photos with no credit.

paolo said...

funny, in this recent post, he took pains to credit someone for the photos. leaving the watermark and a link:

Yes, Jamie O'shea is the worst kind of douche bag there is. He is a big ball of O'SHEA BUTTER. Soooooo lame and outdated. He makes me want to gag every time I talk to him. I think I just threw up in my mouth remembering an encounter with him and his greasy cornball self.

I went to high school with Jamie, and I can verify that yes indeed he is a Super, Uber Douche!
