Kobe Bryant And The Stoned Buddha - A T-Shirt Swipe File Special

At the top, we have an image of Kobe Bryant by KidKalig.

Below, a T-shirt design by True Theory that seems to have been selling rather well so far.

Equally, Jon Haward’s artwork for the Stoned Buddha as seen in the Wasted magazine.

And seen for sale on Red Bubble.

The seller even has the cheek to write “This is fan art. A great comic book artist named Jon Haward did a few pages about the big B for a comic book called “wasted”. The original of this had a lot more things on it, but I wanted to try and do just this part”

And then sell it on a T-shirt for £14.21. How very zen.

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself. If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn’t judge, it’s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
