Occasionally while searching the vastness of the internet, I come across old paintings of mine that I did not authorize for use. Last night I was researching Abbie Hoffman and found my painting of him being used on a page about LSD. Needless to say, I was not happy about it. Now days, dA artwork often ends up on reddit for anyone and everyone to take for themselves. As a 28 year old life-long artist, I have had my artwork stolen from me more times than I have had it bought from me. That is not an exaggeration. I work two shitty jobs that I hate just to put food on the table for my family while random internet lurkers make sure I can't make a living doing what I'm actually good at. I'm fucking fed up. I am taking everything off of deviantart and leaving my account up so that this message can be seen. If you have been following me for a while on here, thank you very much, and to everyone who has actually paid me for my hard work, blood sweat and tears, you are the reason I continue to paint. Bless you. If you're still interested in my artwork please continue to support me by liking my facebook art page:
