Hillary Clinton - The 1st color 3D printed Female President

You guys probably have heard that Obama was considered the 1st 3D scanned and 3D printed President.

The Smithsonian actually claimed it was the "1st 3d printed Presidential Portrait" which actually factually incorrect. Since I was the 1st person to 3D print portraits of President Putin in butt plug forms in response to his homophobic views and laws passed in Russia. The Smithsonian should changed the title of that to the "1st 3D printed Presidential Portrait of an American President" but no biggie.

Anyways i'm reviving my blog after couple of weeks of silence to announce that I'm officially releasing the "1st Color 3D printed Presidential Portrait of the 1st Female American President". Yes i know i'm calling it too soon but judging by the clowns coming out of the Republican Clown car i think Mrs. Clinton Has this on the Bag. 

 Let's look at the Alternatives we have Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and George Bush.. i mean Jeb Bush. All which are Finger puppets of the Koch Bros who care nothing about the American People. So am i early on calling it? probably but i think Hillary is safe unless Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Decide to run.

Anyways I usually go after republicans and homophobes when i do political sculptures and try to keep them meme related. I usually like to do some political commentary and explain the inspiration behind the piece. However, i usually don't do Democrats since I don't want to piss off my costumer base and my fellow liberals. However, this time i decided to do Hillary Clinton because i figured anyone would love strong and powerful desk piece to keep them motivated at the office or desk. This piece is inspired by the famous #textsfromHillary meme on the internet that went viral a couple of years ago.

This Piece will remind you to stay strong and motivate you to volunteer and get involved in this election. Remember the only way democrats can loose is if we don't go and vote or we don't get other people to vote. So get yourself one or two for your house and office... Get one for your fellow Hillary Supporters and get one of this for your friends who like to volunteer during election Season. 

We can't afford for a Republican to take office and we can't afford another Bush in the house.

Is Katy Perry ripping off teespring?

You be the judge

Also why is Katy Perry ridiculing makers and DIYers? I'm pretty sure whoever made this costume spend a lot of time and worked pretty hard on this. I wonder how feels about this...

Sorry but not everyone has access to Designers and mass production factories that churn out 130 buck onesies..

PoliticalSculptor's #leftshark back at Shapeways

After Katy Perry's lawyers failed to assert their copyright claim in both letters in response to my lawyer. My lawyer  (name has been deleted) contacted shapeways and counter responded to their cease and desist. 

So enough lawyer terminology for this post. Pretty much my design is back up undtil they prove copyright or send me to court. So get yours before the sharks get him.

Prior Art claim

So Greenberg Traurig the multimillion firm coming after me for "Copyright" just filed "Trademarks" for LEFT SHARK , RIGHT SHARK, DRUNK SHARK and awkwardly BASKING SHARK. Three Terms i been using in my products before they even filled their trademark applications. I wonder what this means and if they will come after me after for "Trademark" infringement using this well known Trademark Trolling technique. Will they come after National geographic and any other company interested in using the words BASKING SHARK? (thanks to @proofofUse for links to these applications)

Edit: Actually i talked to numerous IP lawyers and they claim that this move is very common. unscrupulous firms usually send nastygrams (letters meant to scare you using fancy lawyer terms without any legal backing) These nastygrams scare small business out of production until they can attain trademarks and then use this to protect a brand or item they actually never had copyright to. Welcome to the way Free market America works now where the guy with the deepest pockets win.

However, things have started to get a little bit juicier and disturbingly interesting. Looks like GT law firm is now trying to trademark "standing shark in right profile; the shark's body is blue; the shark's snout is white."  and "shark standing on two legs; the shark's body is blue; the underside of the shark's fins are whiteIn another attempt to capitalize on something they have yet to prove is "copyrighted" and that was created by the internet not them. (please note the date of the filling)

thanks @V_of_tReason

Will they switch their Copyright Nastygrams to  Trademark nastygrams? will this copyright trolling evolve into trademark trolling? this is getting out of hand for something that is dying down day by day. But i'm pretty sure GT law firm doesn't care. They probably billed thousands of dollars in hours to Katy Perry right about now. So it's a win win for them and a lose lose for us artists and the internet  that created this meme.

These guys aren't backing down not even after my lawyer  (name has been deleted) responded and responded AGAIN!! will this GT Firm take this to trial? not sure.. but if they do i'm asking my lawyer if it's possible to get left shark and right shark to testify in court wearing their outfits of course!!. (if that happens please donate to my legal fund here)

Well Anyways this post is about prior Art and who has the right to copyright and therefore capitalize on this un copyrightable piece of clothing. These GT lawyers state that they should be making all the money... i mean Katy Perry should. You know because of prior sketches that they have yet failed to publicize or prove copyright.

So thanks to the internet, artists, and people following this case i have been informed of dozens of prior art. MTV reported that Tacocat claimed the whole beach shark thing was their idea. Then @robertcopper found this link between jaws, Back to the future and Katy perry. And Finally @shanleygem claims that this "Standing shark art" was used by him in months before the super bowl.

However if these lawyers claim that a "Standing shark with two legs" is copyrightable then will they come after me for my Sad Sham-U the Orca toy art piece made in response of #blackfish?.  If you think about it my Aquatic figure has fins and a dorsal fin that might be confused with a shark. My figure has a white belly, is also standing and has two legs!! a frowny mouth and seems sad he is a slave of a waterpark..  oh my god! i'm definitely screwed.

Oh wait.. shouldn't I be doing Copyright Trolling to Katy Perry.. since i had this piece out way before Katy Perry's lawfirm started copyright trolling artists like myself.

Anyways i'm resuming sales of my Left shark at and selling a lot more politically oriented and not so political stuff at

Sorry for the delays

Hi my fellow #leftshark lover and 3D printed figurine customers. This whole lawyer thing is very stressful and takes a lot of my time.. Also had some issues with 3D printing initial orders so i like to apologize to those who bought a 3D Printed #leftshark and didn't receive it in time for valentines!!

99% of this is due to the fault of Katy Perry's law firm who want to keep this whole copyright claim going even after my Lawyer (name has been deleted) responded to their letterS yes letters because they don't want to let this one go!!..

Any way i made this for you guys so you can give it to your special someone because the 3D print didn't make it there on time. Please tell them i apologize and tell them Katy Perry's law firm is to blame for this!!
