Julia Schonlau is a Berlin-based artist. She designs covers for her music friends, graphics for her skateboarder friends and t-shirts for her fashion friends. Sometimes, she designs t-shirts for Threadless - like this one. It features a disturbing but cute dinosaur pouting over his bottom fangs because he can't hitch a ride in one of the mini cars at his feet. It might not be a Michaelangelo, but it's her drawing, her design, her everything - And Forever 21 totally ripped her off. Not like they drew a cartoon Dino "in the spirit of", but like someone broke out the tracing paper and screen printed the image onto a different tee and called it, "a humorous retro faded Godzilla graphic print". And then they decided they'd charge $.90 more. Forever 21, on behalf of Ms. Schonlau, we wish you a very unmerry Christmas.
