Trying to Spread This Around
If you're a fan of fantasy art or Japanimation, this person's art-theft will probably piss you off. I don't know that much about Japanimation, but if the fantasy pieces are any indicator, that means they're probably all stolen too. Her Deviantart
Here's the ones I recognize:
Johnathan Earl Bowser Original
Jonathan Earl Bowser
There's a lot more in the gallery, some I recognize, a lot of Japanimation I don't.
Sorry for the hot linking, I had a hard time finding some of the originals, so I had to rely on Google.
Between Evil Huskie posing as Mayra Boyle & the fucker ripping off Tracey Buttler's art,there's NO wonder why I no longer draw & post stuff on the net regardless of the cash I could make. ((I only do stuff for friends & a private art shows))
But to be honest even people off the net have bought my work only to reproduce it & sell prints!!! The nerve people... the nerve... fuck it. I give up.
Y'all keep of reporting & spreading the word about this place so more & more people can find out about it & keep an eye out for art theives.

First Theif to -Grace- This Journal
Recently it came to my attention that there's a big fat art theif who likes to make an ass of himself with extra crabs on top. His name is Chris Runyon and he's been using stolen work in his portfolio to get into the gaming industry.http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?s=c70afa75f342fb6a074b87206387ea43&threadid=10539&highlight=chris+runyon
check this thread to get the full dirt.
I know who some of the art belongs to aswell. I'm sure at least some of us would recognise the name Tracey Butler. The images were done for Simutronics Corp. who runs play.net. I'm sure even more of you will recognise that and one or two of you actually did work for them.
It seems this man has been causing trouble with companies for a while so I don't understand why he hasn't been lynched yet. I hate art theives, let us all sling dung at him.
Yes I may be someone who has too much time on her hands that I can look for stolen art on the vastness of the web but fruck I hate art theives and I hope someone sues him for every penny. Current Mood: Fehr
