Daily Deviation

Given 2007-10-01
Contrast is a fundamental pillar in art and design. the Zebra Eye by ~fuzzyzebra uses the Zebra metaphor in splendid detail and fashion! Interesting fact: Zebra stripes are to help the animal hide in the grass from its enemies. Its main predator, the lion, is color blind. ( Suggested by Linay and Featured by lonnietaylor )

Dear Creator,

The Eye of Zebra is awesome typography!!!
Is it possible to buy this for one time usage in high resolution or in vector based file format?
I would like to print it as a digital foil and put it on my furniture doors.

Enjoy the day,

This is an outrage, and frankly, a shockingly honest look at search engines bias.

This piece of art is AMAZING!!  You clearly worked very hard on it!  But....let's talk about how you're getting screwed.

I first saw this in during a Powerpoint presentation in my college typography class (at a "for profit school" btw).
I then went home and used Bing and Google to try to find it.  That was easy, but they would rather send me to Pinterest, Facebook, or even "…" and never showed deviantart or you.  

Even on Pinterest, "" was labeled as the source, and of course the link didn't ever work right.

What hurt me the most is, in some cases, the watermark had been carefully removed.  If it weren't for that, I never would have known who the actual author of this piece was.  (I'm hoping the author is really you or I'm going to look foolish.)

TL;DR Version:  There are at least 2 search engines, 2 social networks, a shady domain site, and a college making money off your work without giving you credit.  It makes me sick to my stomach and just had to let you know.

Hi The-Demon-Llama
Belated thanks for going out of your way to find me! I agree with you - I guess this is the unfortunate side-effect of having work posted on the internet. I am usually generous when requests to use the image in education settings come round, and in a way, I'm glad your typography class has led you to my work.
Let's hope that in time, people and websites will learn to be more conscious of proper source referencing. The internet would be a better place with more people like you! Cheers!

this is great. what program did you use to make this? i'd love to learn how to make things like this, or like this one [link] but i have no idea what program i could use to create it. which one did you use for this?
fuzzyzebra Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2011
photoshop cs3 at the time, and the text warp function :)
whimsy657 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2011  Student General Artist
Ohhhh okay, I've heard a lot of people use that.

I was thinking of getting Photoshop Ilustrator, since it seems to have either the same or similar text functions, do you know anything about it?
