If you google image this quote, you will find the design on the left in many different places, but you will not find the original.
I'm attributing myself from now on. Even on images of just random pictures I took for a project... Uh oh, I feel a little rant coming on... proceed with caution.
It's frustrating how much art is taken for granted. Take a look around. The chair you're sitting on was designed by someone, the letters on your keyboard were designed by someone, the clothes you are wearing, the home you are in... I could go on. It wouldn't be pretty to have attributions on all of those things, but sometimes I forget that someone (or many people) took the time to create them.
Along those terms, I was reminded that while a person or a team takes the time to design something, many people will take the time to create or manufacture it. Hence the SNL skit on the left. If you haven't seen it, watch it, probably my favorite since... Jimmy Fallon was Beethoven.
More on the Beethoven tangent: I find that hilarious because I was in orchestra and symphony in High School. Oh, Saturday Night Live, I love it and then sometimes I can't stand it. I think I love it when people tell me about certain skits so I don't have to sit through the not-so-funny awkward moments.
AND we're back from the tangents off of tangents. Point of this Post: Attribute yourself for your photos and designs, your work may end up detaching itself from your name otherwise. ALSO, if you would like the fish print, you can find it in my Etsy Shop. Free printables can be found elsewhere on the site, but this one took much more time than free will buy.
