If its relevant, it might be worth sending them a note reminding them of it and saying how you feel. I dont know if you already know this technique but If you still feel angry/resentful etc there is a way of clearing it: You tell them the facts (only) as they happened and then how you feel and then say what you need from them (respect, an apology, acknowledgment etc) and then acknowledge your own mistakes (e.g 'sometimes I can make mistakes with names etc). Even if they dont reply or remedy the mistake, it dosent matter because you are doing this for you and not them. This process can enable you to let go of any residual negative feelings.

Oh! I'm sorry, Miss Pixel, I misunderstood you.

I'm not angry about this, and I never was. I was more wondering how to treat what I considered an inadvertent piece of publicity. Or at the worst a news photo where my art appeared in the background.

It sounds like your situation was much more serious and upsetting. I would be livid if my designs were being ripped off.

I was extremely livid, especially as my work took nearly 4 years to plan and complete. Using the technique above is how I learned to deal with it and I am now much more careful about copyright and intellectual property. I am sorry, I thought you were sounding a bit irritated/agrieved from your message.

Default synchronicity

I used to have the same problem but I have to laugh about it... I kept seeing images I was working on or had in mind being exhibited before I could completed them by a virtuoso painter and a friend who was much faster than me. (He'd dash off several pieces a night before a show.) Of course at the time we had common influences, but in one case I swear the guy was psychic... nobody had seen what I was working on.. but there it was... in his work the same image and compostion... down to the number of apples, direction of apple cores and lighting... I called our paintings the "psychic apples" thereafter.

For another spooky/funny but entirely true incident here's a blog entry I wrote some time back:

Sometimes I think there are forces floating around in the universe and it is not for us to understand.
