+ - Web art turned to plagiaristized gold.

Moraiat (666) writes "Plagiarism on the internet is tricky business. For some, it's quite profitable. Todd Goliath (Goldman) of David and Goliath Tees has had much of his art discovered to be copied, derived, or blatantly traced(SomethingAwful.com). Shmorky's (Dave Kelly) art was recognized as duplicated by Goliath and the outcry from the online community has been rapidly intensifying over the course of a day. The main story can be found on SomethingAwful's forum, progress is added as the story develops. The artwork in question, the original, and the overlay of it being visibly "traced" (Image) can be found, posted by the real artist, can be found on his forum post.
Other artists are joining Kelly in his plight, Goldman's been copying others' work for many years, only now someone is standing up to him. Goldman's art is self-proclaimed to be random, zany, stupid, and in your face. His self-biography can be seen here."
