Swipe File: Teecai Vs Paulina Ganacheau… and Matt Herms and Ian Glaubinger and Erik Vogt and PaperBeatScissors and…

This is a design by Paulina Ganacheau. You can see more of her work here. 

Paulina is a comic book creator and illustrator and you may have seen her name on comics such as Another Castle, The Amazing World of Gumball, Zodiac Starforce, TMNT Adventures and Gwenpool.

But you won't see her name on this T-shirt being sold by Teecai for the next four days.

Understandable, she's not that happy about it.

And she's noticed a few other creators who may be in a similar situation.

And others are also joining in.

Any more for any more?

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself? If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn't judge, it's interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
