Just because you have a difference of opinion, does not mean that you can blame them for doing what they should do. The only person you can actually blame is yourself for having an opinion that makes you feel that way. If seeing Ramby's shirts print, or hearing Nickleback's music play bothers you that much, maybe you need to take a few deep breaths and reevaluate your priorities in life, as you are leading a life of hate, and that hate will grow in you and eventually consume you, and you will end up dieing lonely. this last advice actually applies to most of the Ramby haters out there.
I will die lonely for criticizing what I perceive to be cheaply produced, completely uncreative and useless t-shirt art. Wow. Just... Wow.
The fact is, I don't care what the artist likes. As a consumer of art, I have every right to criticize what I dislike, and blame the artist for creating it. Art is not the same as sales, or medicine, or any other commercial industry. IF Ramy wants to make these t-shirts to make money, he SHOULD start his own website. If he does that, great, I will never visit it to criticize him because I don't have to shop there.
When he's entering the same crap in a weekly art competition (which this IS, even if they're putting it on a t-shirt) he's distracting from other artists who are actually TRYING, not churning out the same OMGZKYOOT t-shirt in every derby.
THAT is why I blame Ramy.
