Hello Everyone! Long time no journal entry!
Sadly the first one of 2019 is to complain about art theft :<
sent me a note informing me one of my artworks was being sold on ebay and aliexpress:
It got me thinking .... WHAT IF THERE'S MORE ART THEY'RE SELLING WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE?!?!
So I reverse google searched some of my deviations and here is all the stolen art I could find BEFORE Google gave me this message : "Our systems have detected an unusual number of search-by-image requests from your computer network. Please try your request again later."
So out of the 11 artworks I reverse googled I found that 9 could be found on ebay, aliexpress, taobao, amazon, society6 and other sites I haven't even heard about.
So thanks for making my art calendar FOR me lol
So now my art is the DVD cover for the Jigoku Shoujo series collection? WTF?!?!?
I won't ever know if any of these were actually sold or if they will be, but please know that I am not the one selling them. I have no agreement with either of the sellers, so if the art is stolen, the quality of the products may be shit or even worse. I cringe at the bed covers and other devices my works are being printed on TT-TT Always be suspicious of these kinds of products that are on online sites. I have seen a lot of stolen art while I was browsing today, so maybe reverse image search your artworks once in a while to have peace of mind. Or don't XD it's all up to you in the end.
