Update 7/17: After submitting a second round of copyright claims to Instagram and Paypal, it appears the photo and purchase link for the pins based on my artwork have been removed. I'll keep checking into the page to make sure it isn't re-posted later on. If anyone is in contact with abucketofpins or messaging her on my behalf, please do not be rude or disrespectful, because I don't have any personal issues with her, I just did not want someone else to be profiting off of my work. Thanks for your support everyone!
Update 7/13: I submitted a copyright claim to Instagram reporting the use of my artwork by abucketofpins and received a message saying they removed her content. Last night it appeared that all her photos had been removed or archived, but today her bio states she is "raising money for charity" by selling the Meg and Hercules Wedding Pin for $25. I have NOT authorized her to sell pins using my artwork, whether the proceeds are actually going to charity or not.
Hi everyone, I wanted to write this journal because it has recently come to my attention that Disney pin-maker abucketofpins on Instagram has been taking Disney fanart from DeviantArt, and making them into pins to sell. Specifically, my wedding drawing of Megara and Hercules has been made into a pin WITHOUT my permission, and I have recognized numerous other pieces of fanart from DeviantArtists like Nippy13 in her gallery (edit: it seems Nippy13 allows commissioned fanart for pin-making so it is possible these pins are approved).
Upon my request to remove the pins using my artwork for sale, abucketofpins has deleted my comments and made her IG account private. Please do not purchase pins from this maker if you recognize fanart being used as she is NOT asking permission, but instead claiming that this artwork is free-for-use clipart without attempting to contact or credit the artist.
