Also, I forgot to add in my post above, it's unprofessional to talk shit about the band even if you're unhappy about a business dealing. It's one thing for Geoff to air his grievances over perceived mistreatment, but I saw he talked a bunch of shit on Instagram about Duff's and Slash's greed, or Axl's voice, etc. But he never even dealt with them directly. That's not a good look for future employment. 

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.

I went to look but he's made his IG private now. Do you remember what he said?

I agree, I think they could've resolved this in a way that satisfied both parties but he kind of shot himself in the foot there.

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.

On his Instagram, Geoff May said:


 
Gunsnroses @slash @duffmckagan you guys let flebeis, @dooh3r  and globalmerchservices represent your band?? You guys used to be all about expression, ruffling feathers.  All about expressing yourselves.
Now you’re all about an asshole manager and a horrible merch company. I can’t believe that growing up I aspired to be like you. You’re all corporate shills dressed up in leather. @official_axlrose hopefully you take some vocal lessons with the money you and globalmerchservices fucked artists out of. I guess you should never meet your heroes.

 

 
I have saved a screenshot of his post before he went private if anyone wants to see it.  And he wrote that after Fernando explained why he would not allow APs and wants fans to get lithos at $50 price the band set (which you all read in the entire email from Fernando to Geoff, which I shared yesterday).  He did not like the answer so he went to insult everyone including the band members.  A very immature way to act, in my opinion.

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.

It’s ironic that he is mad about artists getting screwed over (which is never okay) but then blatantly ripped off another artist’s work

Hardly, but keep on beating that dead horse, champ. It’s funny that you think your opinion means anything.

Dude, they are pretty much the same poster. The crazy guitar string concept is even the same. The guitar color is the same and they were from the same city. That’s all just a coincidence?

My mistake- the other one was for New York, big whoop

In all seriousness, I would love a nice GnR polo shirt. I might get slammed here for admitting that, but a large portion of the most fervent and long-serving Axl & Guns N’ Roses fans like me are in my age demographic 40 - 50 years and would appreciate something different? What do you think. 
 

In terms of Lithos, feel free to hit me up on my PM’s to do your Australian ones in a couple of months time. I can bust out my crayons and do maybe a shark eating Chris Pitman in the waves of Bondi Beach for Sydney?  I’ve got ideas Baby! I’ll only charge a backstage pass and a few beers. No complicated contracts. 
 

Cheers, Scott

I don’t think the Aussie dates will happen.

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. 

Just now, ZoSoRose said:

Wow, you are a real piece of work

I think you got canned because you are just an entitled jerkoff

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.

Of course my thoughts and opinions mean nothing to you, as you took someone else’s design as your own

How much were you paid for that one, bud?

Well, dude, obviously. I only know the information you yourself have provided, then Margott dropping the email exchange that elaborated on your dealings with Fernando. But you trashed Fernando and the band members without cause, even if Global is the one who backed out on a previous verbal agreement.

But the emails, bro ... it certainly looks like you were gonna charge those same aftermarket prices to make upwards of $60k despite you telling us you want the fans to enjoy your artwork at a reasonable cost. And again, there is nothing wrong with you selling your artwork that you slaved over for whatever price you deem. But don't come here trying to garner sympathy by lying about how you want us all to have APs and not be robbed. You're accusing Duff, Axl, and Slash of "selling out" but then you're turning around and trying to make money too. 

 

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.

That is simply not true, you posted here because you wanted sympathy and cared about what we think since you presented certain info to mold our opinions

Sorry it was a bad deal for you. I’ve repeatedly said I think you are talented and I enjoy your work (even the plagiarized poster), but you definitely have not been the guardian angel you have been painting yourself as

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.

Again, not plagiarized. I could show you tons of art that has similar concepts and even similar execution yet were created totally separate of each other. I love that you understand all thing art related. You should stick to being a GNR fanboi. The art critic role doesn’t look good on you.

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.

Can someone explain to me what is going on with the litho drama? I see two people arguing and unsure what is going on. 

I stole everybody’s designs and then am getting thousands for APs.

Wow what a badass, those rock stars who don’t even know you exist totally read your respectful tweet and got constructive criticism. Very professional.

“bUt ThEy WeRe BaDaSs AnTi EsTaBlIShMeNt RoCk StArZ!”

They have been millionaires for 30 years who are now operating an entity worth hundreds of millions. Sorry, bud, you just come across as a whiny, disrespectful, unprofessional jerk

Maybe you were underpaid. Most of us are or have been. You agreed to the job, it didn’t pan off. Instead of shitting on loyal fans of the band maybe you could just fuck off and trace someone else’s art for your next project

Are you guys really still arguing over this?

Yea there's clearly some similarities but they're hardly 'the same'. I never thought that GNR litho was all that original, there's been plenty of bands/artists who've used broken instruments in their artwork over the years, but it's still a cool litho. :shrugs:

Fernando cared enough to reach out, right? But at some point (by that point?) you already showed how unprofessional you were with petty insults on band members. At that point, I don't blame Fernando if he thought, "fuck this guy." I wouldn't want to work with someone like that either.

I’m fine with that. Fuck him.
