Hmmm Aubin & Wills...

Hmmm... several people have brought some recent designs at Aubin & Wills to my attentions. Now, I can't help but feel a little miffed...

Their fox designs...

My fox silkscreen design seen at my final exhibition and this year's Pick Me Up as part of the "Selects" Group: 

(this is the very first one with slightly different gradient from the one exhibited at Pick Me Up)

And this is one of the prints exhibited at Pick Me Up, currently framed and wrapped in my sitting room...

Oh, and the inspiration for the silkscreen print from my book 'Human (adj.), which is actually more similar to their one than the print in terms of the quality of the medium.

Naughty, why not ask me to do it? What do you think my fees are?! Or maybe they're unaware and an illustrator they commissioned got 'inspired'. Very flattering, but feels a bit funny, and as far as I'm aware, it's the first time it's happened with my work.


  1. That is obviously a rip off! Have you got in touch with them?

  2. You should contact them Sarah!
    I hope all is well with you, your foxes are lovely :)

  3. I have contacted them but they haven't got back to me...

  4. You NEED to contact them to find out who did the illustration. It looks like a total rip off to me. Are you with the AOi or another organisation you can ask for help?
    Or post it here: http://youthoughtwewouldntnotice.com/blog3/
    And see what happens. Best of luck Sarah - this sort of thing happens a lot and it is very unfair...
