(Graphic designer/vine sensation Joey Martinez (@phat_joey on Insta; give my dude a follow) does a run of shirts that John Hill apparently likes ; so much so that he reproduces them in a manner which proves the Ďgeneration lossí theory/manner. Iíve seen you guys get up in arms when Target or H&M steals from us, but what about a fellow skater? Dude has been deleting comments and blocking people as well as deleting the post of the photo above. There are SO many ideas out there, why steal one? Donít you have pride?

Oh wait ; youíre a youtube vlogger. You donít have pride.

that's not a very unique concept and the second one is better.

So you prefer when something is stolen and altered to remove any blackness. White supremacist confirmed

Yeah I'm gonna need you to go ahead and stop producing that obvious rip off graphic.

For real, it's pretty clearly a bite and that is a bad look for anyone.

How about a better idea? We start a skater owned shoe company. We can call it SMACKYOMOMMASKATESHOES. How do you like my business idea?

Yes, b/c skateboarders would never rip off a piece of art or a logo.

This isn't like parallel thought or any of that. Youtube saw something he liked, stated publicly "wow I like this!", then ripped it off. Add thief to the list of derogatory terms for him.

Andrew Allen is a living legend and must be protected.

In the reddit post where I first saw this, he original commissioned the artist to do the design for him, then decided he didnt want it. Shortly after he started putting out "his version".

Yeah, I originally saw something similar on twitter, possibly written by the same dude, the original artistís brother. But that tweet was deleted so I ended up just going with what I knew.

Dude also apparently isnít selling that shirt now.

Also, add sassy to the list of descriptors.

Not wrong but a fake streetwear brand is the ultimate cash cow for people with large unmonetized fanbases.

youtube ripped off phat joey. phat joey ripped off doom sayers. doom sayers ripped off old tattoo flash. old tattoo flash ďfound inspirationĒ from the fucking sistine chapel. bands have been using this concept on album covers for years, (see: the antlers, godspeed! you black emperor).  itís almost as if most art is fairly unoriginal??

john hill is a fucking kook, there are plent of things you can make fun of him for, letís start that thread instead.
I can't even shoot a load anymore staring at Wet Willy.

While thatís true, his comment on the original post makes this a different story. Whenever H&M et all rip off something, thereís always some form of plausible deniability. In this case, him commenting on the original removes the possibility of claiming it was his idea, or that he is inspired by something that has lapsed into the public domain... no one is paying Michaelangelo royalties for the creation of man anymore.

Dude ripped off a someone (another skater) that is attempting to make graphic design his career.

Corny or not, itíd have been a great move to put that you designed a shirt for a d-list streetwear company on your resumť. But it didnít happen. John Hill said ďnever mind, Iím not commissioning you for your work anymoreĒ and went ahead and made a knock of instead... then deleted/blocked people calling him out for it. Apparently Hill and the original artist came to an agreement and Hill is apparently not selling the shirt anymore (and being a brat in the comments about it). Regardless, dude should be fucking ashamed of himself.

Could be more tricky then we know. If he did indeed commission said artist about it, then it's certainly a possibility that he requested the artist to work around his own artistic vision for it, i.e. "make it with two hands reaching for each other... position it this way. " etc. It really depends on the terms of service that the artist provided to hill. Hill could have commissioned him to create it, whilst paying him enough to own the original image as well; allowing him to modify it to his own desire .

Otherwise its just a concerned homie looking out for a friend, but ya know... not having the full story. Not a good idea. This could be detrimental to both parties involved with in itself, reputation-ally speaking. Because the third party getting himself involved may not be privy to the details of communication, John hill could come out looking shitty for it, and the artist may also lose potential clients who wouldn't want to deal with any potential friction when working with him.

He claims to like Pokemon but it's clear that he's just riding the Pokemon go hype train. Don't even get me started on his apparent love for Digimon.

who are any of these people and why are you guys so heated about a graphic that looks like it could be at any urban outfitters.
only in skateboarding is putting an adult in a position where they might have to actually work for their income "ruining their life"  ::)

Doesn't shock me that he would be alright with jacking someone elses idea. Him being a sneaky self centered ass is why he was essentially eradicated from the industry, and why he has had to resort YouTube and sponsors like Revive. Sadly, its worked out awfully well for him, but what goes around comes around I guess. Like 99% of Youtubers, his audience will get bored of his content eventually and he will go away.
