According to reports, the original drawing was made by Easy Drawing Tutorial, a company which provides drawing tutorials, in April 2021. Greg Solano, the Co-Founder of Yuga Labs, wrote in a tweet that the Miami-based firm has already "reached out to the freelancer we hired for that design and Easy Drawing Guides."
"We'll be changing the logo and updating it on our site / ask marketplaces to change as well."
Easy Drawing Tutorial took to Twitter to confirm that Yuga Labs "doesn't have a license to the wolf skull drawing." The company emphasized that the IP rights for the drawing belong only to Easy Drawing Tutorial as it's protected by terms and conditions.
