Hey this guy stole your picture [link] .He had a DA account under the name jpfeasy.
killaby's avatar
WTF! I don't know if he re-drew it or what but it's terrible and what the hell kind of name is uncle Adam? The guys name is Mike and he's a home less guy in Wisconsin for crying out loud. I'll send the little bastard an email....thanks for alerting me. Oh and BTW he's been banned from DA...seems he's been stealing more than my art!
jeffro70's avatar
Yeah he probably downloaded it and just posted it as his on their site,I recognized it because I faved that drawing....and you are welcome!It's a shame people do that,no conscious I guess?
killaby's avatar
can you send me that site link of his again? I tried to post a comment and it wouldn't let me when I tried to create an account. I don't what he did to my drawing but his is is either photoshopped to make it look different or he actually tried to draw it and it turned out horrible.I'm sure he was stealing others artwork or he wouldn't have been banned.
jeffro70's avatar
Yeah I meant to add that he probably photoshopped the pieces,I don't think that really justifies you to claim as your own work???.....[link] if you recognize any other pieces please pass along!
killaby's avatar
I emailed him and he responded with a rude statement that he was going to have his lawyer sue me!!! HA! I laughed at that one because I'm a paralegal and I told him to "bring it on" and that I would give him my contact information and anything he needed to get in contact with his so called "lawyer" and then I reported everyone of his works...you should see how many pieces the guy has stolen and all the comments he got about his work being taken from DA....amazing ignorance for sure. I think he's a done deal now!! haven't heard a peep out of him!
jeffro70's avatar
He'll probably just assume a different identity and continue doing what he does!...I checked him out too and I like the comment he made about being a renowned sports artist!!!If your renowned why steal???...I think he was trying to make some money off other people,like you said amazing ignorance!
killaby's avatar
well then he'll continue to steal...God will get him in the end.
