Bad News from Italy
Even on the screen of a phone it looked familiar. Yes, it's the Adi Gilbert illustration for the Sideburn Dave Aldana night from 2011.
THIS T-SHIRT WAS PRINTED AND SOLD IN ITALY. CAN ANYONE TELL US WHO MADE IT OR GIVE US A FACEBOOK OR WEBSITE LINK TO THEM, PLEASE?
We ALWAYS pay the artist for the artwork, not just promise to raise their profile.
In the case of Dave Aldana we also paid towards bringing the legendary racer to the UK in an effort to raise the profile of the UK flat track scene.
When companies rip Sideburn off, they're ripping of two guys who make a magazine in their spare time, because this niche title doesn't pay enough to support us full-time (and never will). So we work on it when the kids go to bed.
This is the third time it's happened in four months.
People are stealing our designs and artists' work and it's pissing us right off. Please help us find these rip-off merchants. G
