I emailed you about this through Etsy. I think it’s a first class ticket on the shitball express that you’re using another artist’s image to make money, dude. I don’t even own this image. I paid the artist to use it (Austin Young). But you do you or some crap like that I guess…and please don’t nobody or no one counter with my whole career is based on that kind of appropriation. Parodies are another matter entirely. This is not a parody or a comparing/contrasting of two points of views. This is someone else’s image.
