I make some fanart stickers (among other items) to sell at conventions. The usual fare includes character art made by my partner and the name of the character over top. A person approached my booth near the end of the day on Saturday and seemed very interested in the stickers.
Client: Oh my god! I love your stickers! They’re so awesome! What font do you use on them?
Me: I’m glad you like them so much! All the writing that you see on the products is my own handwriting!
Client: (laughing) Ok, no, but seriously. What font?
Me: I am serious. I use my own handwriting.
Client: Listen here, you little bitch. No one writes like that. No one. Just tell me what font it is.
Me: Why do you want to know so badly, anyway?
Client: So I can recreate the stickers, duh.
Client: I know you just steal your art off the internet. You can’t fool me, I’ve seen that artist on Tumblr. I’m just going to do what you do.
That artist on Tumblr was me, natch.
Me: You need to go. Now.
Client: Whatever, bitch. I hope your house catches on fire with you trapped inside.
They stalked off in a huff. I guess it’s my fault for not using a font for my stickers?
