I don’t know what to do. I am so upset. Can anyone help me?

My painting was created back in 2010, (see it HERE) and since then so many people have expressed their love for it, not just on tumblr, but in many places. At least 9 people had it tattooed on their bodies. It’s one of my favourite images I created at University and I was proud of it in many ways.

Disney have used it on a cosmetics bag HERE (look at the back)
and they have produced a Tshirt HERE with a really similar design clearly modeled from my painting

I’m so mad because I have no chance at getting Disney to do anything about it. I had so much respect for the company and now I am just SO upset and disappointed.

Any help, advice or signal boosting would be amazing. And thank you so much to the kind person who messaged me about this.

This is really sad. 

Look at the bag. It is the EXACT drawing. This is terrible. For the company responsible for a lot of current copyright law to do this – wow.

Please signal boost. Literally the only thing someone can do against Disney’s stealing someone’s work. Without all the lawyers.

This is so sad. 🙁

Signal Boost…DISNEY! One of  your designers stole this and no one noticed. Please give Katie a fair (7%) royalty WITHOUT going through the unnecessary hassle of a law suit…THANK YOU! That would be the only way to prove to me that you don’t suck.

Seeing a disturbing number of things like this happening lately. Not okay! Another reason to add to the list of things I don’t like about Disney 🙁


What people fail to realize is that these people, these mainstream ‘artists’ are signed to contracts that basically make them into puppets of fame. Why do you think there’s such a similar pattern in all mainstream songs or artists? Sex, going clubbing, money… colorful and dramatic music videos/clothing. It’s what sells, and of course that’s the main goal of these music businesses. Being an artist is merely being yourself because we’re all naturally unique. That’s why I feel it is so illusory for people to believe that these mainstream people are artists because they act upon what the masses want from them, rather than personally self-expressing themselves, resulting in a mass population of people who do the same thing and feel ashamed if they don’t fit up to those kinds of standards.

Some great points. I think there are some mainstream artists which are truly unique, but I think this touches on the point why I’m uninterested in a lot of mainstream music.
