So today I was having a broparty with my art teacher when he remembered he had to tell me something. Something about some other girl who everyone pretty much hates. I kinda thought he was going to tell me I was making her suicidal, but this was not the case, oh no. Apparently he wanted to let me know that she was essentially using my artwork for "inspiration". That means just BLATANTLY COPYING MY SUBJECT MATTER. I honestly never thought I'd see the day that anyone would copy my shit. Like...I'm honestly just...disgusted. He said she's "known for this kind of thing", which makes the fact that she's started to wear high heels and dresses (which is kind of my gimmick) all the more disturbing. Even creepier is all the things I've heard of other instances of this occurring. My one lady friend has been talking about how she "copies" her for fucking ages and I just kind of wrote it off as pretentious bullshit, but after I told her about this she revealed this crazy stunt she pulled involving copy/pasting basically all of her myspace information onto her profile. This is scary. She even left the names of her friends in it. I'm just so grossed out. I really have no idea what to do about it, like I'm not trying to be a self righteous cuntbag. I understand that she's trying to find her thing but going about it all wrong. If anyone has advice that would be great.
I'm really trying not to sound like I'm all about myself (I don't really think I'm as great as I act like), but this is unnerving :/
