For those of you not aware of the situation, I thought I might bring up this artist's plight
as a sort of public service announcement. This fellah has been doing Ghostbusters fan art for many years now - spectacular Ghostbusters fan art
, I might add - and it is his art on which some-if-not-most of the design of the recent video game was based. This matter was apparently settled with the companies in question, with good ol' Dapper Dan being promised an on-screen credit in the game. He didn't want anything else, it seems, except acknowledgment for the use of his work. Unfortunately, despite assurances, he did not receive the promised credit
, and an attempt to give him a shout out
made by one of the involved companies has since apparently mysteriously disappeared.
Mr. Dan himself does not seem particularly upset about the turn of events, but I personally still feel that credit should be given where it is due. If you have played the game and enjoyed its visual aesthetic in any way, then I urge you to visit this good man's art gallery
and check out the work it was based on in appreciation. There's some damn good stuff in there and it's well worth the visit.
Existence is a series of catastrophes through which everything barely but continually survives.
