Hey there, a while ago I posted a picture of me wearing the Jack Harkness/Daniels tshirt that a friend got for me from redbubble. Now, all over the place, pictures of a similar (but not quite as good) shirt have surfaced. I hope it is a genuine coincidence that the shirt is so much like your design, and not that they've copied yours :) Thanks for the awesome shirt.
Hi apushinthewrongdirection. Firstly, Thanks for buying my design, I hope it provides many pleasant torso-warming days :D
Now, onto the ‘other’ one…
I presume you are referring to the design that was recently for sale on Qwertee (http://www.qwertee.com/product/our-number-one-man/)? If so, I also saw that on the day it was on sale, as did some of my lovely designer friends. To be perfectly honest I have no idea which came first, but I do remember thinking “GAH! Why didn’t I submit mine for voting?”. Anyway, like with all these parodies and mash-up designs, there have been many times where similar designs hit the shirt sites, and no matter which came first, I always start by giving benefit of doubt… The creative mind is a wonderful thing; these ideas pop into our heads and kick and bitch and moan until they are released.
One thing I will say about the Qwertee design is that they [designer, and maybe a little Qwertee for allowing it through] are very naughty for using the ® symbol ;)
