fishy island

5K Favourites
I came up with the idea about 6 months ago in the end of 2008 but I realized it just a few weeks ago. It was a bit frustrating since I knew that I had to wait until the summer to be able to carry it out. This is one of my most well planned creations and it took some time to find the places I needed. The photo consists of photos from 6 different places. There is a slightly bigger version on my web site:

I would be happy to hear your thoughts about it.

Edit: This has sadly been used as a cd-cover slightly modified for a italian band without my permission.

This is another picture of yours that a man on Facebook, Issa Hamadi, is using this picture to promote his own collection of Photoshop tutorials. He does not give you credit. The Facebook page is Learn Photoshop Easy. Someone else has made a comment under the photo that you were the artist and cited your Facebook page. I hope he leaves the comment up.
He is doing this with several artist's pieces of work and making it seem as if the work is his though he does not say so outright.

Hi , Good time

Thank you for good training, but this training did not find a link. Put a link to this tutorial could afford to take advantage of this training.

Dear Erik, when I asked you to reproduce your idea in an italian version on a CD cover, you said yes. I have your mail answer. On the bookled of CD there is your name in the credit: Artwork based on a idea by Erik Johansson (in italian of course).

Spero che ti abbia chiesto almeno un'adeguata cifra di denaro.
Dire che è "basato su un'idea" mi sembra un po' una presa per il culo dal momento che è stata utilizzata la parte principale dell'immagine originale.
