A Harry Potter Facebook fan page called hpotterfunfacts (please feel free to spread the word about their ethics!) took it upon themselves to rip off my Pokémon Patronus images and sell them on mugs. I was careless, and uploaded fairly large images with no overlapping watermark to Facebook and DeviantArt. Not high-res enough for say shirts or posters, but big enough to go into the 3 inch print space of a mug just fine. I've re-sized all my images and applied watermarks. I hate obscuring art with watermarks, so I apologise for the ugliness going forward. But there are some nasty Slytherins out there who can't be trusted, so unfortunately p
Ah, art thieves, my old friends... It's been a while!
My Pokemon Patronus designs are being stolen! I've contacted the sites about removal, but it might help if some more voices report them as unauthorised. Here: https://viralstyle.com/store/vuthanhdu/pokemonpatronus
And http://teechip.com/hponix Do not buy anything from these links! But find their contact pages and complain. I think they're user-submitted, not organised by the site owners, so hopefully bringing the facts to the admins' attentions will be enough.
On the bright side, I've not had anything stolen for a long time, and fell out of watermarking habits. So perhaps it's a positiv
I am kind of back I guess. Going to be putting my con prints up on here. Some of them got previewed on the comic site, but they had no permanent home. Here they shall reside. Until Perfectly Chaotic gets redone, at least.
Next convention: Calgary Entertainment Expo, April 16-19 2015, booth 513 (with Pixelated Toaster).
PS: What's the purpose of "Status Updates" versus "Journal Entries"? Seems a bit redundant. So I have redundantly re-posted this as a journal to bump the previous, eight-year-old post off my front page.
Okay, I have to go to bed, cuz I just realised I have work int morning (thought it was afternoon). But EN's all screwed right now - the front page is the June 22nd comic. I assume this means we're on the new server - toldja there'd be problems switching over! The ComicGen admins know about it, apparently we just have to wait till the new server is synced up with the old and it should all go back how it was. I think.
Whatever the case, July 13th's comic isn't finished. Lotta work needs doing on this one. You'll see. Should be done by Saturday, on the site, if it's sorted out by then, or I'll submit it here if not.
Posting an update here, case some EN readers are watching me, and wondering what gives with the no-update and downtime.
Our host, Comic Genesis is experiencing ongoing system-wide problems, causing sporadic periods of downtime, and great difficulty in getting an update to go through, hence the lack of a comic on Friday the 8th. I was able to get an update on the main page on Sunday through less-than-ideal means, but soon after that, all of ComicGen went down. Seems it's well and truly borked, and we, nor CG's admins know when it might be fixed. Nobody is as frustrated as I am by this outage (especially considering Friday's comic was actually
