I saw this promotion in ny local Harmon’s grocery store in Farmington, UT. I pointed it out to my boyfriend and said “Holy shit I follow her, someone else stole her likeness!” And had to snap a photo to send you.
What was wrote to me
This is actually drawn straight from a photo I took in this makeup on my Facebook x.x
AND OMG, I was also just sent photos today of the Halloween company Elope was apparently the one manufacturing those horns with my makeup design on it and are currently using it on their packaging across the US.
Oh man, I have so many phone calls to make tomorrow X_x;
Hopefully I can find out who the artist is (This does look awesome though haha! Holy shit man…)
I sent this! I was so fucking angry I was spitting everywhere when explaining to him about how that company was selling your image without consent, we actually got kicked out of the store! Seeing this got my blood boiling, companies stealing artists image(s) is an issue near and dear to my heart; Forever 21 has made profits off of my friends drawings which she posted on her private MySpace, and they turned into a T-shirt. I think Harmon’s is just using it as a Halloween promotional poster, and not actually making profit, but still. :/
I CANNOT thank you enough for sending this to me! <333 I am already dealing with that one Halloween company that stole/copied my faun makeup (to a TEE) design to sell their horns (And now has it on their packaging across the US) and now this?? I use this makeup to promote and sell my OWN products, I am NOT okay with other companies using it! It’s still taken without my permission and being used to PROMOTE their store, therefore, it IS technically being used to make profit from, that’s what promotional posters are for. This is ridiculous. What the hell is so hard about people asking me?
Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.
Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.
#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.
That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.
This is why honey is not vegan.
The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.
YOU’RE NOT MILKING THE BEES FOR THE HONEY
YOU’RE NOT EVEN HURTING THEM
OR THEIR HOME
HUMAN BEINGS EATING HONEY IS LITERALLY ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS PREVENTING BEE EXTINCTION YOU STUPID FUCKING FUCKTRUMPET!
