Hey!

Look who I found on Deviantart with the same nick and birthdate and a profile image stolen from :iconcarlosgomezartist: Ninja sketch commission by CarlosGomezArtist ... with the signature erased of course...

:iconsnickers19510: snickers19510.deviantart.com/

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:


Thanks to the past plagarism of one "Mr. Legitomite", people are a lot quicker to confront and take down these hacks.

I am pretty sure the speed in which this article came up on Bleeding Cool demonstrates that artists and their fans are a tight knit and connected group now.
www.bleedingcool.com/2011/12/3…

Dude got his etsy site wiped - he has a twitter btw twitter.com/#!/snickers19510

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:

Got this brought to my attention, so spread the word.

ART THEFT!!!ART FRAUD! Check this guy out. He's taking work from other artists, claiming it as his own and then selling prints of them on Etsy.com. Not only is he claiming these pieces of art as his own but he whites-out the artists signature to hide evidence of it being anything but his own original creation. He has one of my pieces for sale in his store as well as art from several other illustrators that he apparently "admires". He's also written a little bio about his talent and how hard he has worked to get his skills where they are at. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated and we will hit you hard.
Art theif's Etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/snickers19510?ref=seller_info


:iconsquirrelshaver: found one of their pieces being sold by this a$$hole www.etsy.com/shop/snickers1951… - sig was deleted as well by the seller.

Right off the bat I saw one of the images was done by Francis Manapul.

I hate these guys...

One person could be a bad artist (I am hehehehe) but the less you need is to respect the people who are great artists and their work. Specially if you say you "admire" them. This kind of thieves are people who do not deserve respect

PS: sorry by my "google" English.

Sometimes I think this stuff should be done with discretion =/ I know you mean well by spreading awareness. But now you've probably got an army of people stalking this guy and harassing him. Not saying what he did was right, but the internet can be a cruel place and people are ruthless when they think they are anonymous. This can backfire on those thinking they're serving justice, and it's only stooping them down to his level.

Similar has been done with Chad Lieberman. He's stolen hundreds of pieces from people and attempted to sell them. So many people are on his ass, people have even posted the phone number and address to his work place (which is completely unnecessary).

Went to the page and saw nothing on it so I hope he removed it? Hopefully he'll learn his lesson if he hasn't already. And I just love his profile description lol. Orly now? Then why are you stealing art?

Oh man, I've had too many run ins with pun ks like this. one had the audacity to claim he drew my pictures, helped me create m,y characters and then said I was a customer of his! Can you believe it? These kind of people are the worse and should be beaten with a sock full of pencil erasers. :P

The only problem with etsy and whatnot is that many of them have artists that sell their artwork on their. Unless they do lots of homework, we can't decide if it's the artist or a thief. So until we know for sure, we just assume it's the artist.

Esty is notorious for housing art thieves, 80% of the so called artists are nothing but thieves,frauds and scammers.

like I said, there are a lot of problems with those sites. You have to do research and most buyers are lazy.

That's why I hate dealing with those sites and head to da or fa. sadly, some of the really good art isn't shown on da or fa. That's why I follow the journals in hopes other artists find these people and suggest them.

The real program is that sites like Esty don't proactively review profiles and artwork to verify that they are legit. They only take take action by either court order or by enough complains and a warning from the BBB.
