Lessons Learned: How I Dealt With An Art Thief
Every day, many people on deviantArt find themselves dealing with art thieves off-site (outside deviantArt). There are many ways to approach this issue, but this article is about how I went about it. I'm only writing this in an attempt to be helpful to others going through the same thing, or give ideas to those going through it who don't know where to start or what to do. Becoming victim to an art ripper isn't a hopeless, helpless situation. Though I was inexperienced with the issue at the time and justifiably angered, I was able to prevail through a mixture of help from other kind deviants, a professional manner/attitude and resources found on the web.
My particular case began one day about a week after my first Daily Deviation was given to me by Aeires. Up until that time I was a relatively unknown artist, and was minimally protecting my work with an easily removed watermark. I didn't really think my work was worth stealing, and honestly hadn't thought about what would happen if

Many changes in my life lately. Haven't been keeping up on here like I should, and definitely need to do more artwork, but for now getting settled into my new life.
By new life, I mean I am now living near Birmingham with a new job...not printing T-shirts anymore, now I'm printing on paper.
I still want to make time for some conventions, but I know I won't be doing anywhere near as many anymore. We'll see what the future holds, but right now this seems like the right choice for me.
Some days have been stressful, but overall I'm having a blast here. Full time job, spending time with awesome's pretty great!

Like I said, one of the hardest things right now is finding time to do art, but I'll make it happen, just have to settle into this new routine.
