I think everyone is going to have their hang-ups with the book. Its just very difficult to have something thats going to make everyone happy in every way. In terms of what Fairey may think about my illustrations, I see your point, but while the illustrations are difficult to do, the "idea" isn't that hard to come up with. MANY people have done this illustration style, just like i have also used other illustration styles in other projects. At the end of the day my background, framing, and color scheme are different then Fairey's, so this isn't "stealing" by any means. Its akin to two chefs cooking similar meals but plating them differently, or using a different meat or something. There are things like this that would be ridiculed in the design world, but I doubt mine would be even "frowned upon". The fact of the matter is we're deep enough in this process (pause), that to all of a sudden sort of change what the book is all about would only create more problems, and undoubtedly make this take even longer. I appreciate the feedback though, forreal.
