cymphony:

Anime-Alley storenvy has been brought to my attention in that they are selling my free! artwork off as charms WITHOUT my permission. This is really appalling, I have been forced to remove my illustration off all sites or edit a large watermark over it to protect my work since I simply cannot trust the community not to pull this sort of crap.

It’s common sense not to steal what does not belong to you. It is not the artists fault for wanting to share their work only to have them ripped off by people without a shred of decency. (Do not blame the shopkeeper for what the thief does).

After a bit of digging by my friend and I we found a lot of their items may also have been stolen from various artists and official artwork. PLEASE check if your artwork has also been stolen or if you can recognize the artists. I can absolutely attest that they stole my work and used without permission, and the fact that some of the items (particularly their free! Free! -Pic-Lil! - Pic-Lil! trading strap) are being sold at super cheap prices when they are very rare and expensive to obtain officially in Japan should alarm you.

Please do not support their thievery and profit of other people’s work and cheap imitation of official merchandize. Their products are also shoddy and poor in quality as seen in the photos.

If you can reblog this post, I would really appreciate this information being spread. Apparently they can be found at conventions and I’m just disappointed to know that they could be selling stolen artwork.

If you can email storenvy with a link to this post, or with any other information you have found to have their storefront taken down permanently that would be great. I do not want them to just simply take down my item and walk away with stealing other people’s work again, then nothing would be solved. Thank you so much.

Instagram?

Do people really use Instagram that much? I’m surprised at how many times I see Instagram linked to things. Even popular and accomplished artists are using it. I generally have avoided using it but if people are using that and I can utilize that as an efficient way to gain some exposure to my art and music, then I am seriously considering it. Is it worth getting?

Even if you’re a stranger I really want your input: Should I get Instagram?

Popsicle sticks 2 and 3! I don’t know what I’m going to do with these lol, but they are very easy, simple, and fun to make…

The top ones, and the bottom ones, are respectively the same sticks; they’re just flipped over in the right picture to show both sides.

Chocolate Almond Mug Cake

I ended up making this today. I added a little more milk since my almond butter was really thick, and I added chocolate chips into the mix; and then I put raspberries and whipped cream on top! And I had it with honeyed tea. <3
