Art ThievingLately I have been getting a handful of notes about people stealing my art and passing them as their own. It's no stranger to me now to have my art being stolen. But lately there are two cases that are much worse than before. One place I have people tracing my commissioned art for others, another place I have people trying to sell prints using my art.Art Thieving3 years ago in Personal More Like This
No one likes to be branded as thieves, but I cannot retract that label when after being confronted, not even a single apology is issued to me. I do not threaten people, so why is it hard to apologize for your wrongdoings? I find it quite funny. Let me tell you what, when you apologize with just a simple line like 'Sorry, I won't do it again.', it can make a mental note to yourself that you will not repeat the same mistakes. But you did not. That just leaves the impression of what you are doing is not wrong and there will be next time not until you get caught.
But now I have seen. I'm very disappointed. I stored away some of
'Fair Exposure'So today Someone posted a link to this'Fair Exposure'3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
on one of my pictures.
It is about the new way to feature pieces on the frontpage. They give categories that are not as much used a higher position than popular categories.
Personally making the front page is not that important to me. But I think it's quite weird to give almost a head start to other categories.
I do get why they do this but I don't really agree. It's not all that fair at all. Giving certain people a special treatment is far from fair.
So I posted this journal to ask your opinion on the subject.
How do you feel about this?

It's really relevant to me right now, because suddenly people have been asking me about my canvases and cut outs... like people I know. I think it's because I posted this picture on my facebook. (which I hardly ever do because I'm like invisible with my friends and family when it comes to my art.)
How it looks in my room BTW: http://ceshira.tumblr.com/post/40891503944/if-youre-wondering-why-ed-edd-n-eddy-didnt-make
And what the guy says in the video is true. People expect you to do free work because "Hell, it will only take you a few minutes."
Well no it doesn't. For one thing, I take my sweet ass time because I worry that if it looks bad, I'll see how limited my abilities really are. AND THEN MY FAMILY WILL CRITICIZE ME SAYING "SHE QUIT BEING A NURSE FOR THIS? PSSSHHHH" (I have some issues with family's judge-y eyes.) So yes, I think the emotional stress I would have
Stolen ArtworkGood morning all my fabulous ghouls!Stolen Artwork3 years ago in Personal More Like This
China Glaze has formally apologized, and have personally apologized to me - for which I am extremely grateful. They're now going after the so called "artist" who ripped me off, and have offered me compensation, and a job! So rock on China Glaze! And thanks to all of you guys for your support, and the flaming messages sent to the company. I really think that all of the outrage opened their eyes as to what happened, and that caused them to reach out to me. Way to go creeps! I <3 you!
Here is the earlier post:
I have some unfortunate news this morning - I was alerted that the beauty supply company China Glaze has mutilated a few pieces of mine - and some from other artists as well - to advertise their Halloween nail polish collection "Wicked."
This is upsetting, not just because it's a horrendously bad Photoshop job, but because they didn't ask for my permission, or offer any compensation at all. It's disgusting, and I'm pretty hot a
A Shooting in AuroraLate last night, a lone gunman went on a killing spree in a movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado.A Shooting in Aurora3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At least 12 people were murdered, and many more were wounded; some of them are in critical condition.
If you are a spiritual person, please say a prayer for the dead, the dying, and those living touched by this tragedy.
If you are not a spiritual person, any happy thoughts or kind gestures would surely be appreciated.
Please refrain from any speculation, politicization, rumor-mongering, conclusion-jumping, finger-pointing, and other similarly inappropriate behavior for just a little while, if possible. It hasn't even been 12 hours since the tragedy took place, and that sort of unproductive demagoguery is already being handled nicely by the 24-hour news venues.
Real tragedies like this happen, all over the world, and our responsibility to our fellow man is to render aid & support, be it large or small, in times of crisis.

I'm happy because:
Zombies are back. Really, I hope the Plagas and Uroboros shit is gone for good. I only hope they will have a good reason and explain why things have "downgraded" back to zombies and viruses so to speak.
Half of the game seems to take place in an ambiguous American town, which I always felt was a good quality about the original games. I really didn't like it when the games began to take place in "real locations" such as Spain, Africa, Antarctica, you get the idea. They seem even more like cliche war games when they started to move to such locations.
Most of the cast seems to be familiar faces. Albeit, these familiar faces come from RE4 but hell. Better than adding even more forgettable new characters as they've been pouring on in Revelations and Operation: Raccoon City. And it seems that Ashley has grown from being a helpless girl, so perh

First of all, thank you for doing this interview, Adrian. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Well. I really don’t know what to tell you about myself. I am a normal teenager. Going to school like everyone else. I have low self esteem. I am not sure what I am doing here. I am trying to be perfect at everything I do. I am a lot of other things. I think I could write pages about me. I can’t characterize myself and I guess I never will.
What do you think sets you apart from other photographers?
I don’t know if I am setting myself apart from other photographers. Because I feel like I am not long enough into this world to say I am established or anything like that. It still feels like I got my camera yesterday. But to g

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined
more by what it is not, rather than what it is.

Not quite sure if they are linking or removing but at least they seem to be listening now.
I sent the person in charge of the page, a copy of a legal document on Copyright that I was going to file against him and then I noticed he had put an apology on the page and sent me the following message:
"Well first of all i really apologized it bcoz our page was hacked by some other peoples and we havent able to know what had happend now we have restored it again so kindly understand in future this will not happend again im assure you i hope you can understand it.. think positive"
Yes, I really believe that. He has said he will link my work back to me and I have given him until the end of the day to do so. I think any other artists who have had their art stolen, should demand a link or to have t

i went to my Independent Research: Drawing class, which i signed up for late. so i didn't know quite what to expect, having not been to class yet. the only thing my professor told me to bring to class was a drawing i'd worked on or completed lately...
do you realize how vague that is? my mind went into overdrive. should i bring a large one that was more conceptual? should i grab a still-life? a comic? i was losing it. but then my dad, who is good friend with my professor, having been a grad student under his teaching, tells me to show my professor what i LIKE to do.
thus, i take the Hunger Games drawing i've been coloring, and a completed Blaire design.
i was so embarrassed when i showed him my cartoons, that i started rambling about how i'd like to go into animation, and he stops me. he asks me what materials i need to do that. i kinda freeze, cause i wasn't anticipating that at all. but then i spit out that i hadn't thought about anything spec
