Last month Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein had a show on at the Tate Modern.
While the public is intimately familiar with his work, what they may be unaware of is that many of his images were directly nicked from comic artists like Irv Novick, Russ Heath, Jack Kirby, Mike Sekowsky and Joe Kubert, who received no fee or credit.
In the music industry if you cover a song, or sample it, your obliged to pay the writer royalties & credit the source, but in the crazy world of art this seems to go out the window.
The above words & wisdom came from "Orbital Comics" London, it was there where I checked out the exhbition "Image Duplicater". See for yourself (below*) the original mainly unseen artwork, next to the celebrated millionare who never gave anything back to the people or "the community" he stole from.

If anyone knows the name of the artist(s) who created the mural work for the Fresh Prince & Jazzy Jeff videos drop a note in the comment box below. To this day I still have no idea, who was responsible for those cartoon images in the "Fresh Prince Of Bel Air" intro, that have been ingrained into mine & millions of others childhood memories. BAY-BEE!
