  1. I actually am. My litho auctions are done tomorrow so that is the end of me working with GNR or Global, thank god. Have fun y’all. If you need to reach me I’m pretty easy to get a hold of.
  2. Yeah, I’m literally in tears because someone thinks I’m an asshole. let me know how those color comparisons go.
  3. Do an eye dropper color grab in Photoshop and post the results. Let’s see how exactly the same these colors are.
  4. Just putting it all out there. After that I don’t really care. At least it’s out there. Regarding not caring - yes, Global and GNR can piss off. fans - I’m glad they like my work. Other than that I don’t care about what they think they know about what agreements were in place. When you see someone totally not in the know telling you stuff about your business like it’s fact then they can fuck. At that point their opinion means absolutely nothing.
  5. Again, your thoughts mean zero to me. I’m fine with that. Fuck him.
  6. Which makes it even funnier that he thinks those are the same colors. Of course there’s different types of colorblind, so there’s that. I stole everybody’s designs and then am getting thousands for APs.
  7. Not a guardian angel. Just showing what a shit company Global is and how Fernando is totally cool with that because I (gasp!!) said Axl needs vocal lessons. Prove me wrong on that assertion.
  8. I don’t want sympathy at all. Again, I give zero shits what people think. I just wanted it out there for other artists to be aware of. It’s interesting that after I brought this stuff to light that I was hit up by a bunch of artists and a couple ex-employees of Global basically solidifying the things I’ve said. Far from your bud. You’re also clueless. But please, go on. You’re an armchair designer on a fan forum. You’re clown shoes.
  9. Apparently you’re colorblind and have no clue of what you’re looking at. Similar concept? Sure. So what? You think you got one over on me or that I’m going to apologize. Fuck that noise. Again, your thoughts on my work mean zero to me. See, misinformed. I did the canning. But yeah, you know all the intricacies of merch design and the music industry. Please tell me more white hot insider info.
  10. Hardly, but keep on beating that dead horse, champ. It’s funny that you think your opinion means anything.
  11. I didn’t want to solve anything, just make it known to other artists, which it is. It’s not like I wanted to work MORE with them or Global. I’m glad you know all the ins and out of the industry and know what was promised to me and what wasn’t. You’re a next level genius.
  12. And I give zero shits. That’s the beauty of being self employed. I don’t answer to anybody and can handle things how I see fit. We’re really going to talk professionalism and GNR?? They’ve made a career out of being unprofessional. I mean that in the best way.
  13. You’re not privy to all the details and other stuff that was in the works. But sure.
  14. I don’t know what to tell you. You seem very obsessed about what I’m making on my work. Show me where my prices are the highest. Also, full secondary market prices? You gotta be kidding. My two auctions that ended today had very different finishing prices. Hardly full market value. But hey, keep checking the auctions. Things happen for a reason. It’s honestly a relief not working with Global.
  15. Correct. But they were with Bravado when I last worked on lithos. They are with Global now but it’s obviously the same scenario. Yeah I’m on IG. I also try to update my site regularly.
  16. I can use the art for art prints if I choose but the GNR name and logos would need to be removed. As far as art credit - never from them. Not once.
  17. Actually since I booted Global I’ve been inundated with work from other clients. Life ebbs and flows.
  18. 2016 was when I first did their lithos. First time I actually did any lithos. This is when they were with Bravado. I had no clue about APs at the time. I just assumed that was the gig. After the 2016 ones I did I refused to do more because it wasn’t worth the time involved. Shit, I had to go to NYC to actually get ONE copy of the posters I did because Charles Dooher couldn’t be bothered to send me one. This was like a year after the shows. Once I started doing more for other clients (including Global) I realized APs were a thing and then it made the work worth the pay.
  19. Where did I say I was doing the community favors? All I said is I work to try to make sure my pieces are the lowest. I do this because I am/was a fan of the band and if I wanted a poster for a show I went to I wouldn’t want to pay 20x the original price. I’ve always made a point not to price gouge people. Never said that I’m not trying to make money. Again, this is my job. I’m not some dude trying to flip posters for maximum money.
  20. Definitely not on that project. I put in a ton of hours on it. I scrapped multiple, almost finished designs because I was sure I could do better and really wanted to only put out top notch work for GNR. At the end of the day it was a huge time suck and I regret ever doing any work for them. Like I said before, lesson learned.
  21. Of course not. But that’s kind of beside the point. As if I have other work then I should work for cheap? This is my livelihood. Believe me, it’s not glamorous and it’s not lucrative. It’s just a job.
  22. Should I just give them away (which I actually do at times) or should I let you set my pricing? I can’t help that someone wants the art. I mean, that’s how the economy works. When there’s a demand there needs to be a supply for said demand. If there was no demand the pieces would have little to no worth. so I apologize for trying to pay my bills. I hope you make sure to not capitalize at whatever you do for a living.
