Does this remind anyone else of the glamour kills shirt?”

Yep, and that one reminded me of a threadless one.

Sorry if you really made this up yourself. But the concept does look very much like “Lions are smarter than I am”, a design on Threadless:

@hmm..peculiar It’s been pointed out before that people can often do really similar and almost simultaneous designs — with no “copying” involved. What I find really peculiar is that your user name and “join date” make it seem like you’re trolling.

@againstbound its merely a coincidence. if there is a resemblance in the idea, i did not mean it. there is a link below where i got the idea from. but instead of using a bear with buddy holly glasses, i used a lion instead (because it seemed to me that this is what the staff likes). i hope that the next time something like this happens, you go straight to the forum so i can set things straight and you dont have to scare those who actually want to buy.

I have the shirt from Threadless that is similar, but I also bought this one too. This is a completely different treatment, colorway, etc. I love how the glasses frame the shoulder area, as well as the dark, moodier colors in this.

congrats muttley! :)

Instantly thought of this tee by Glamour Kills from years ago:

@GDettra Ok, that was mentioned 10 days ago by killerwombat, and referenced by againstbound who said that the glamourkills shirt reminded him of a threadless shirt. It was then mentioned again by someone who essentially accused muttley stealing/ripping it off. I’m not sure if you’re just commenting on the association (and really, there’s a lion and glasses, but that’s kinda where it ends) or trying to continue the idea that he ripped it or whatever. Muttley addressed this, including the JPEG link of his particular inspiration, so I think at this point both have been covered and I think muttley deserves the credit for his work and the congratulations.

thanks again Karyn2002. :D

Haha, no problem. I think its one thing to offer critiques of “this looks similar to that” when somethings being voted on/etc for the purposes of offering helpful critique. Trying to circuitously imply that someone doesn’t deserve to win/did their own work/etc once a shirt is at the SOTD, SOTW, SOTM stage it just becomes petty and pointless. Never been a fan of petty and pointless — since I’m not sure how it actually HELPS anything.

Besides, I think this shirt rocks, and have looked at all the shirts/images, and really, there’s lions (and a bear) and glasses — everything else is different. Same “family,” but very different family members in my opinion.

Muttley congrats! u have mad skills bro! payter jud kaayu oi!
