Funniest art theft ever :D

Sat Apr 21, 2012, 3:30 AM
  • Listening to: stuff with lots of bass in it.
  • Reading: too much to let me sleep enough.
  • Playing: the game of life. ha!
  • Eating: dreams.
  • Drinking: black coffee. too much of it perhaps.
I just got a note that my artwork got stolen.. Not only mine, I noticed some other artists' works there. I usually take care of such things in private, but in this case I'll make the exception, as it deserves it. I literally almost fell of my chair, laughing, when I saw that :D See for yourself:

Art theft by vinegar…

Yes, I'm attaching this person's account name on purpose. After all she didn't feel bad to steal my art, alter it poorly and also claim she was the model for some of it, so why shouldn't I share her name in return? Seems only fair after all the hard work she put into it :D

Anyone knows how reporting works on Flickr? I never used it before.

Some of the stolen works:

By pumpkiiin

By crayonmaniac
Symphony in blue and green by crayonmaniac The Elves of the hidden forest by crayonmaniac

By Lanfirka
Fiery birds by Lanfirka Strange autumn by Lanfirka

By fdasuarez
Bat your eyes girl by fdasuarez

Cleopatra by vinegar Ginger Nova by vinegar angel. by vinegar Ladybug's heart by vinegar

Please let me know  if you recognize the authors of the rest!

haha...she should have just cut out the head and put in a smiley face instead....that would've been more appealing.

I have similar feelings as you do when it comes to people stealing my work.
I always say, if you're going to go through all that trouble to steal my shitty work at least have the balls to make it better.
...stealing is one thing. But stealing, and then making the piece worse is another...
Don't crap on my crap....haha

I hope someone shits in her mouth.
..haha...I shouldn't say those things...haha
take safely

I laughed seeing that she was the model for every picture she stole. :ohmygod:

I find it so ironic that this thief thought she could claim the artwork as her's after just editing the face? Really?

Hope your able to have this situation taken care of and have her account deactivated.

it's ridiculous. but i'm glad you made this journal about it & you and some others noticed also my work or else i wouldn't know!

You know I love your art, it was actually the first thing I noticed there :D

I reported this person to flickr. Let's hope she gets deleted and learns to stop stealing.
