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.

Yeah I'm starting to think that's what happened too.

@facefirstyou've made the following things clear:

You're mad at Global

You're mad at GN'R

You don't give a shit what GN'R fans think 

So why are you still here? I have no horse in this race, it's just an honest question. 

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.

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:

It’s a very cool litho. I just doubt the similarities were out of thin air. Same colors, similar backgrounds, stylized strings, stickers, came out at a similar time, etc

its not the worst crime, artists “borrow” all the time, it’s just combined with everything else

Do an eye dropper color grab in Photoshop and post the results. Let’s see how exactly the same these colors are.

You made it everyone’s business by coming on here and crying about it though

You are just mad because people realize you are an asshole

I’m fine with that. Fuck him. 

Are you STILL here? Don't you have work to do? You're crying about being a starving artist with bills to pay, then claim you've been inundated with work offers ever since you threw all your toys out of your pram. Sounds like you should be putting food on the table instead of replying to people whose thoughts "mean zero" to you.

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

Sure.

Geoff May came here saying GNR refused to give him APs of the lithographs he created for this leg of the concert tour. He said generally that's how artists make money on this type of work-for-hire. They get paid a small sum for the artwork but are in turn given a certain number of prints that they can sell themselves. He says the company, Global, made that promise and then went back on their word. 

Fernando reached out to him via email to ask him what was going on, but by the time Fernando responded a second time, Geoff had already gone nuclear. He went on a social-media crusade of sorts (here and on his personal IG account), saying Axl needs vocal lessons and that Duff and Slash are sellouts. He blamed them for his business dealings with Global and said they are complicit in all of this.

OK, well it's all out there, so I guess you're done here? 

This face turn from Fernando rivals the heel turn at Bash At The Beach 96 😂 

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.

Just a reminder to everyone to be very careful with insults please.  You may be heated but please refrain from lashing out at ANY users or other fans.

 

 

There's literally ONE user causing all the problems here and he's literally told another user to go choke on a dick. Why are we still allowing this child to post here?

Oh and emails were shared backing everything he just said. 

So yeah, it's all out there.

Dude. I’ve worked in the industry for over a decade. I’ve been screwed out of deals and not paid in full by artists as well. It always sucks

Going on a fan forum and blasting the band on social is generally never a good look. You may have a side to it and may have a gripe with how things went down. People around you may also agree. That stuff also comes back around. It’s not just the bridge you burn. It’s people around you take note of the complaints and attitude when the next disagreement comes about. You do you though 

Sell your prints and put them up for auction to get scalper prices. Get your $
