Anonymous said: If you were to see an artist who had obviously taken some stylistic elements from your own style, how would you feel about that? Like would you be uncomfortable/uhnappy with the similarities (like they were 'stealing' your style) or would you be more flattered that they like your style enough to take inspiration from it? Just curious!
I guess it depends the extent of it. Obviously artists borrow and copy from each other all the time and this is totally fine, but yanno… there’s a limit. Obviously there’s a point where is stops being ‘inspiration’ and starts becoming a lack of originality, creativity and then turns into ‘theft’.
On a side note most people grow out of copying other artists and find their own voice, so I guess as long as said fan turned what they found interesting in my work into something new then I would never have anything to complain about.
