Cape Town – Shortstraw on Tuesday retracted the artwork for their single T-Shirt after it came to their attention that it’s a copy of another artist’s work.

The Johannesburg based band was notified late on Monday that the artwork they used for T-Shirt, the latest single from their Those Meddling Kids collection, was not done by the artist employed for the artwork, but a copy of an artwork by an artist called Adara Sánchez Anguiano. 

The band asked designer Dan Apter to create an artwork for their single and used it in good faith, with no idea that it is a copy of another artist’s work. The band immediately got in touch with Adara, and apologised for the use of the artwork without her permission.

Shortstraw once again apologises to Adara, and is looking into solutions to get this situation resolved as soon as possible.
