My Sephiroth got kidnapped... Artists beware!!!

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 3, 2016, 9:59 PM


So shortly after posting my latest work, one lovely soul messaged me something important. Apparently,  my 'Safer Sephiroth' Safer Sephiroth by RadiusZerohas been kidnapped and made into a T-shirt without my permission. :disbelief: This site just went up, took my work, and slapped it on a tee. I wasn't sure whether to be flattered or angry since I'd always wanted to make a t-shirt of that work. However, I never gave these guys permission to use my work.

I already emailed them last night, realizing the possibility that I may not be the only artist whose work got compromised.  I've yet to hear from them. :(

I think this is an excellent opportunity to thank you guys for watching my back. I know I haven't been around much on account of life, but seriously, thank you. :hug: This is the second time my work has been compromised. I was fortunate back then too though; someone notified me and even sent me a scan of the magazine showing merchandise with my art on it. I definitely encourage you all to speak up if you find sites featuring an artist's work on a shirt or cup or whatever. Don't be afraid to ask him/her if the site is legit. Chances are, it ain't.

Let it be known that if my work is ever sold at an online shop, I'll definitely bring it to attention here and share the link. Sadly, I see a lot of suspicious art-related merchandise on sites like Ebay. Not long ago, I was looking for Minato (of 'Naruto') merchandise on Ebay and found a lot of unofficial-looking stuff. I encourage artists to check out Ebay's listings once in awhile to make sure their work hasn't been taken. Also check out sites that typically sell art canvas prints and whatnot since I've read a few artists here make complaints about them.

Anyway, thanks again RuinofDarkness for bringing that site to my attention.

I'm a nerd. :B I live the nerd life. I love nerdy things too: videogames, comics, anime, cheesy horror films, books, fanfiction, fanart. If it's nerdy, chances are high I already like it. A good chunk of my art is inspired by those nerdy things. :)

When I'm not at work paying the bills you'll find me drawing, writing, and/or watching movies. I attend conventions whenever I can to earn income on the side; it's a great way to meet fellow artists, talk with fans of my work, and have a great time.

Nice see you again at Comic Con! :D It was fun talking to you again about FF7 and Sephiroth and Cloud, and such. And buying more sexy Sephiroth from you. Now I have 4~.

Unfortunately I was there for Saturday only, but I hope to see you around again sometime at another con!

:D Woot! So happy you came by my table and bought something for the cubicle. Nothing like color to bring life to a place. :meow: Thank you so much for supporting my work again. I wouldn't have been able to pay my bills and put food on the table without people like you there. :hug:

Definitely, you need to play Parasite Eve! I love that game and would love to do more art for it in the near future. :)
