Don't buy from David & Goliath Tees

You know those "Boys Are Dumb, Throw Rocks At Them" t-shirts? Well, the guy who makes them (yeah, it's a guy), Todd Goldman a.k.a. Todd Goliath, has been outed as a plagiarist. A painting he has up in a gallery has been traced from Dave Kelly's webcomic "Purple Pussy", and the "Eve L" character on several of his shirts is just Roman Dirge's Lenore but slightly taller and without pupils.

A lot of webcomic artists like Randy K. Milholland and Scott Kurtz have been getting the word out, and the news has also spread to art magazine Juxtapoz, the general comics news & rumors column Lying In The Gutters, MetaFilter, and Digg. My LJ is small-time, but hopefully this will inform a few people who might otherwise have not known and been inclined to buy one of this thieving bastard's shirts.
