This isn’t my work but I’m posting it because I think that artist attribution is really damn important, and since I’m a fan of Jim and Jimbo Phillips’s work, I’m posting this so more people are aware of this Jeremy Scott plagiarism/art stealing fiasco that’s happening right now. It just seems really silly that Jeremy Scott would pretty deliberately rip off (like, i don’t think that this is taking inspiration from, it’s exactly the same stuff) an artist who is really well known and that people wouldn’t find out about it? I just don’t see why Scott couldn’t have just made this a collab with the Phillips. Would have been that fuckin’ simple. Also, if Jeremy Scott is catering to ~*the youth*~ he also probably knows that they fuckin’ skate or have friends who skate, and if you are even remotely clued into skate culture, you know the designs of Jim and Jimbo Phillips. Seriously, wtf? 
(also, since we’re talking about attribution, i got this image from here.)
