Haha! Brilliant stuff, great character. I especially love how you did the background (any tips on how you did that?!?). Nice.

You're right! This was never meant to be taken the wrong way. It's referring to an often used quote, that I'd just read this article below.


This come from the Steve jobs quote (and others, Picasso?)


What Steve Jobs really meant when he said 'Good artists copy; great artists steal'

Apple's Bud Tribble: "If you take something and make it your own ... it's your design and that is the dividing line between copying and stealing. That is part of Apple's DNA."

Think Andy Warhol and a certain tin of soup.

Inventors do it all the time, copy mother nature's designs. Just like the AT-ATs in Star Wars, which resemble elephants/camels. Aeons of Beta testing and no copywriting issues.

This is a quote from


Maxine Horn says:

An interesting article and of course the headline Great Innovators steal was just an attention grabber.
Great Innovators ‘stand of the shoulders of giants’ – a quote arguably attributed to Issac Newton. 

Innovators might steal from many (be influenced /inspired by and connect new dots) but never steal from one. Meaning it is not innovative to copy the work of one person but taking unrelated influences from many different sources and applying new logic to create an entirely new solution in a different sector or circumstance is using many influences, new intelligence, knowledge and know how to innovate.

The article puts the argument across extremely well and helps to differentiate between influence and inspiration and that of ‘stealing’ work from others.

Standing on the shoulders of giants. Is a much better quote.
