More examples of stolen design elements by Justin 'Slasher Design' Osbourn...

i think the texas chainsaw 2 comparison is really 'clutching at straws', but you can't deny the others the schizold/prowler hester prynne one is shocking.

I thought so too the first time I saw it, but upon closer examination, the black blotch marks on the side of the saw blade are exact. The image has just been reversed in Photoshop. It's the same chainsaw image, though.

The tee shirt is the worst, just a straight up copy with slightly different colors sold as something new. Wack!

I corrected my error a few posts back, after I realized I had the wrong guy. Sorry.

I still can't place that face from the SkeletonWitch shirt, and it's driving me nuts.

The one drinking the beer? I know he has used that image before on the Fright Rags Silent Night, Deadly Night shirt/poster…I don’t know if that’s an original drawing or if its lifted too…probably lifted.

Some of these examples are just hard to understand why he wouldn’t just draw it in…even if he just simply traced the image. I’m not too concerned about the t-shirt graphics I guess, but the album art is just unacceptable.

Though still no word from Justin, eh?

So far, nothing.

He even deleted (or possibly just deactivated) his Facebook page.

Sad thing is, he's already been hired by Scream Factory to do another 2 Blu-ray covers for upcoming releases. One of which, is probably their most anticipated release of the Fall.

I thought the same earlier and did a Google image search for "The Stuff" but nothing came up similar. That same type of face/pose - the upward scream - is featured on numerous giallo and slasher film posters, but I haven't been able to find the exact same image yet.

So it appears he LITERALLY has no artistic ability whatsoever.......

He's just a photoshopper.

I'm amazed it's taken this long to realize, it really looks like he has no original art at all.

I thought that at first too, The Stuff... might be from Silent Night Deadly Night, or one of those Amicus anthology flicks...

I wouldn’t say he has no artistic ability…the dude has a pretty good eye for laying out a design, and is more than likely a whiz at Photoshop. It’s definitely not an easy task trying to composite several images from so many different sources and then try to make everything look like one cohesive hand drawn piece like that.

Man…if he would have just traced the images so that they weren’t just identical cut and pastes, I doubt we’d be having this conversation. It just sucks that people are confusing this guy with other artists, like Nathan…if anything that should be a reason for Justin to come forth with an explanation, so these other artists don’t get pulled through the mud.

Funny how nobody complaints or cries when some Rapper takes an old song and changes nothing but the lyrics.
