    Thumbs down Android ripoff!

    I found this very familiar looking image in the 6/2010 issue of "digit!" in an article about the Photoshop Convention 2010 in Munich. It is supposed to be a "virtual" cover for a car catalog and was used in a lecture about the workflow in a advertising agency.
    Attachment 1213057

    The caption says:
    "From the idea to the catalog cover: From scribble, car shooting (courtesy of Robin Preston) and a (non-final) Illustration by Tom Krieger, a motif, which was created for the photoshop convention and not quite finished, emerges in workflow with Andre Price and Marius Schwiegk (both Jung von Matt)."

    Jung von Matt is one of the biggest ad agencys in germany. And take a look at Tom Kriegers client list and his portfolio. http://www.tomkrieger.com/

    Why dont you just email Andrew Jones...
    doesn't that make more sense that posting it here?

    Plagiarism happens every day, and just because its Android doesn't make it any worse.

    Its bad that it happened, but not a tragedy.

    If anything, this is a testament to how big he is.

    @Aryeh- I did, he asked me to post it in the lounge. And it's not pissing me off so much because it's Android, but because there is a quite successful illustrator and a big ad agency involved- they should really know better and be able to do something on their own.

    That and the fact t that it is posted in the lounge means it will be viewed by more people, meaning the perpetrator's actions will bee seen and judged by more people. Remember Crahzz? Yeah. I don't think his backside has really recovered yet.

    Can't wait to see what wonders become of this thread ^^

    The ripoff aside, this cover doesn't make any sense lol. You advertise a modern car and you put some strange plant-bird-whatever fantasy woman head? Come on. Put some robots if you will, but this is just fail.

    The fact that he's even done a preliminary sketch is like a nails in the coffin. If he'd just used the image maybe he could have squirmed his way out of guilt with an apology and giving credit. The sketch is proof of further trying to say he created it.

    To give him some credit, he has worked it quite a bit. I mean horizontal flip, that's pretty special in it's own right. :p

    Well a plant lady makes some degree of sense because you want your car to be both sexy and environmentally friendly.

    This is so fucking sad. It doesn't even resemble the "sketch".

    Thanks for posting Android's piece as well Jake. At first I was like, "Well yeah, they're definitely working in Android's style but how is it actually a rip?" And there it is. Hell I'd send this to the editor of "digit!" magazine...the pres of the ad agency...and the Mom of the artist who ripped it.

    I realize it's not a tragedy...any more than a good ass-kicking is a tragedy for the bastard responsible.
