Bad form




Not very happy about this... A jewellery company decided it would be a brilliant idea to steal two of my drawings and use them on their necklaces.
I'm sick to death of this happening to artists.

  1. UGH!!!! How frustrating and annoying! This does seem to be happening a whole bunch lately.

  2. I'm sick of it too! Will anyone ever get the message?

    And they've done such a lovely job of cutting out the image on the third one too....

    Glad you found it though :)

  3. What a shame, they're such gorgeous necklaces and if I hadn't read this blog and saw these first I would have thought they were approved by you (and possibly bought one, so I'm relieved this was brought to my attention!) Can anything be done about it? It must be illegal to use an artist's work without their permission, especially for profit, right? :(

  4. That's some shameful sh_t! I thought you must have had them made at first. I honestly can't believe someone would do that.

  7. yeah, cant they just ask you for your permission? also you could file a complaint. But its also good to see that brands such as hurley and element are also carrying you designs but they asked permission right?

  8. I came by these recently in a giftware shop in
    Melbourne & asked the sales assistant whether this was a new line of merchandise by Courtney Brims. She said who?! Who indeed, I knew something wasn't right, who do they think they are to use your artwork without permission. And frankly I'm personally disgusted to see your exquisite drawings represented as cheap low quality pieces of junk.

  9. Name & shame them. Maybe we need a site that exposes this when it happens to any artist. They look great..but that's not the point.

  11. I've seen them a few months ago being sold at a melbourne market!! My daughter and I recognized them as your work straight away, and knew that what they were doing was wrong.
