Guard Your Art (Rampant Art Theft Alert)
Apparently copyright infringement knows no bounds, as the amazingly talented caricaturist / cartoonist Tom Richmond points out in his blog.
The gist of it is, some Indian gal named Ruchika has made a few how-to videos showing how to create a caricature – only the art she’s using is actually that of artist Kirk Bjorndahl.
It’s stunning (in a terrible way) to see this kind of rampant theft take place. I watched the videos myself – they were horrible. Ruchika doesn’t teach – she merely rambles a lot of nonsense – providing no guidance (technical or otherwise) on how to draw the character.
But, of course she can’t, because she didn’t really draw it.
