So.

Instagram user karin459 has been posting my fan art without credit.

Not only are they doing that, but theyíre also cropping the images to delete my signature.

Reposting without credit is dickish enough, but cropping the signature is beyond the pale. Iím naming names because of that last part.

Yes, they did an asshole thing, but please do not send them hate.

Anyway.

I donít mind if folks want to put my stuff on their Insta, or Pinterest, or FB page, or wherever, but please do me the courtesy of crediting it to me (Sparklywaistcoat) and also posting the URL where you found it, or else the URL of my WordPress fan art page (https://therealavengers.wordpress.com/fan-art/).

Because of these incidents (yes, theyíve done it at least twice that I can see), from now on Iím going to be putting much more visible watermarks and signatures on my stuff, so Iím going to retrofit and repost whatís already up and continue doing that with new things. Yeah, it kinda mars the art, but if it keeps people from stealing my stuff, then so be it.

AGAIN: DO NOT SEND THAT INSTA ANON HATE OR HATE OF ANY OTHER KIND. I am an adult and can deal with the situation myself, and I donít want any assholery done in my name or on my behalf. Thanks.

wow, sorry to read about this....sadly, it's a familiar tale with 'art' being hi-jacked and used w/o credit..
