Soviet Union produced some licensed cars, e.g. licensed from Ford (GAZ) and Fiat (Lada). But a lot of car designs were just the “pirate” rip-offs of Western models. Look here (original car on the left, Soviet rip-off on the right):
I believe they actually didn’t copy those cars, it’s just a coincidence. Like when two scientists invent something at the same time without knowing about each other efforts. So yeah, the similar design of those cars is just a coincidence.
OK, I’m kidding! These are clones.
So why am I talking about cars and rip-offs?
When I was drawing this icon for Mémoires, I thought it would be cool to have “M” on a book. And, since we have a memoir theme here, of course, it must be made of gold. It must have a fancy font. Yeah, this is how cool books should look like.
Two weeks later I saw this Mori icon:
I realized that I’ve seen this icon before. So it turns out, this thing was in my subconscious mind, and when I decided to draw a book with an “M” on it, I reproduced the Mori icon.
Holy Dolly, Sorry, Mori!
I’m going to replace Mémoires icon for a final release with something else. Maybe, with “Mé” on it? Or maybe just add a pen to this icon? A black one… Oh, and a green book instead of a blue one, maybe? Ha-ha :) Your suggestions?
