~ ripped artwork ~

28 June 2005

i’ve started to get bored of my mobile look and have been wanting to change my phone cover. but, unlike Nokia, Sony Ericsson cover is hard to find.

we were in Plaza Singapura when we found a little shop that could print some kind of stickers that would cover up the phone. and it covers nicely, too. we can customize the way it looks by choosing what picture to print in the stickers… they have their own designs that we can choose or we can use our own design to be printed on the sticker.

this is perfect! i’ve been looking for this all along.

so i was happy…. until i saw this while looking through their design selection.

phone cover pirate

oh wow, it looks very similar to the Kimono Lady i did last year! maybe i should’ve added those little flowers on the background… it looks kinda pretty…

wait. what am i thinking!? i’m supposed to be angry!

but then, i found out that over three-quarter of the images they have there is taken off the internet. we asked them where they got all their images, and they said they have a designer on their end working on the designs.

hmm, i don’t remember ever working for you… nor receiving the cheque…

ugh… i hate when this happen. especially for something i want to get for real! i really want a new face for my phone! maybe i could ask them to make one (or two) for free…
