The back cover of this week's Artvoice (Buffalo's alt weekly) is causing some controversy. The major elements of the page have been shamelessly lifted from a poster designed and produced by my friends at Hero Design Studio. If you are going to steal someone's work you should probably steal from someone whose office isn't four blocks away. The person who did this must be very young and not understand the rules of the game. Hero isn't too happy. The other element in the layout was appropriated from something I designed, see below.
The Buffalo skyline used behind Hero's tree and leaf, looks very much like a distorted version of the skyline I designed for Mark Goldman's book City on The Edge (Prometheus Books 2007). The corners are sharper than in my original and some of the buildings have less detail, I suspect that someone used mine as a template and made a new version in Illustrator.
