Todd Goldman just keep sinking lower.

Remember Todd Goldman, the pedo who sends porn to children and happens to be a serial plagiarist? Just when I thought the guy couldn't sink lower, someone found out that Todd Goldman's most famous piece was traced as well.

The one on the left was created for a 1999 Intel ad introducing the Pentium III.
The page with the character
The commercial
Goldman's company was founded in 2000 and that shirt came slightly later. He changed the head, but the rest is obviously traced.

Jesus christ was is so hard to draw the kid's body he had to trace it? I bet he traced the head from a source we haven't found yet.

If you have a blog, a livejournal or whatever, talk about this, link to it, copy/paste this. Todd's lawyers are sending cease & desist letter to people who are exposing him (I didn't get anything; I'm probably not big enough to get noticed by lawyers). But they can't attack everyone, so the more people talk about this, the more it becomes impossible for Todd Goldman to fight back.
Digg it!

I'm pretty sure Sirkowski's been ripped off. Any comic artist or illustrator with a considerable online readership is bound to be targeted by some talentless hack to a certain degree.

Go to Google, and look up "The Banrai Files". It's fairly amusing. Even though the "case" is considered closed since almost 1.5 years ago, the thief has been seen continuing the same behavior that got her into trouble.

I've been ripped off, but not to the extent of what Todd did. The people who have plagiarize my artwork were low level hentai artists. Nothing worth to lose sleep over.

I wrote a Ranma lemon based on one of Sirkowski's drawings and included the drawing at the end, but I clearly identified the artist and gave the URL for the site at the top of the story. You can see the story at the Ranma 1/2 lemon stories archive searching by author and title (DaremoKamen, Wicked Man Pills 2), and of course if there is any objection to the picture being included have the moderator delete it.

I'm still somewhat surprised...

A guy was this flaky AND able to build-up a fortune?!

Cripes, what were the odds?

My god!! What a doofis!

Eh, don't be too freaked out. Be angry! Todd Goldenshower (pee pee pun) is destroyed. I'm sure you're not the only one reporting on Turd's actions. It's becoming very political and public. This has allready hit every sourse there is. He's not going to make another penny at this rate. And in civil court, he'll lose every one he's illigitimatly gained.
