So.  I have an art thief.   Right here:… NOT BUY THIS PERSON'S PRODUCTS.  I have reported them to already for copyright infringement.

I am not flattered.  I am not pleased.  I am just really, really annoyed.  

Note that the image they are selling is mine.  I am not making any money off of this artwork that I created.  I did not give them permission to do this.  I do not approve of this use of my artwork.  I did not authorize it in any way, shape, or form.  Hell, *I* can't even sell prints of this artwork on DA, due to the rules they have regarding fan-art!  Why should anyone else have that privilege?

As of now, I've put my artwork into Storage mode, except for a few art trade/gift pieces, and some recent works that I don't think would make very good t-shirt designs anyway.  I've disabled comments on everything.  If you have something you need to say to me, send me a Note.  Or comment on this journal.  Whatever.  

I'm furious right now.  I'm going to have to go through my settings on this gallery, one image at a time, and make sure that the "download full-size" option is DISABLED, which it was SUPPOSED TO BE on the stolen image, but thanks to the way DA keeps changing everything around on this site every few weeks, it was NOT.  I am.  Beyond.  Pissed.

Once I get my own site up and running, I will be removing everything from this gallery.  Everything.  And then I will be deleting it.  It's obvious that the only way I can prevent people from stealing my art is by putting a bazillion watermarks all over it and uploading only tiny, low-resolution versions of everything.  

I fucking hate people.

In other news, I will be home from Korea in about a month.  o/  Yay.

This is so random, my friend loves your supernatural art and I had no idea that you were the same person that did for the love of yaoi.
You still do pony coms?

A friend of mine bought a few of your cards from Convergance MN this year! Great job! I love the Gabriel & Sam one! :)
Hi. I wanted to ask you if I could use the pic of "Team Free Will" for making avatar? If you want me to credit you, I will, obviously. It's for my LJ. I will putt a link for your deviant gallery in all picture's comment if you want. But I really would like to.
And, by the way, the Arrangement Verse is really, really awsome <3. This pic is so perfect.

There have been avatars already made, somewhere (though I forget where). If you want to make your own, however, that's fine. But yes, please, credit and link back to the original. Thank you, and thank you for asking first. :)
Don't mention it. You're an artist, I obviously wont steal your work _ It's really bad.
But could you send me the picture without the deviant logo on it please? _
You'll see, I'll publicize you on my LJ and my tumblr.
I like what you do.

Ah, right. The image was stolen from here before, so I took down the full download version to prevent it from happening again. Send me a note with your email address, and I'll send it to you, ok?
