Here’s a quick #protip: finding some art that you like on instagram, tumblr, facebook or Google and erasing the background so you can place text all over it for t-shirts, email blasts, promo materials, or flyers does NOT make you a graphic artist. That just makes you someone who lacks creativity and needs someone else’s to boost your own endeavors. And it’s always these same people who crop or erase out your signature/watermark and replace it with their own. My art took hours to create, your wording…? 15 minutes tops, if that. #respect #dontsteal #ask #illustration #HireARealGraphicArtist #illumistrations #illustration

Batgirl (2014), original artwork.
Ever since I’ve had some serious life changes in the past few months, its been a struggle to sit down and find some time to draw a fully complete illustration.  And its been sapping my energy in my art downtime to see people stealing my artwork for various purposes, some of which was to make profit off of.  But I put that all aside to finally get this finished.  Its been sitting as a sketch for the absolute longest, and it feels good to finally get one done.  
If you would like to purchase this as an awesome 11” x 17” print, you can do so at illumistrations.storenvy.com!

It’s been so long since I’ve been able to scribble anything. And this time I made sure to put a big watermark over the sketch so it won’t end up on a random t-shirt or someone else claiming that it’s theirs… #drawing #illustration #naturalhairart #naturalhair #sketch

So I see this asshole @vveenooneevv is just going to continue to steal my art, put ugly ass filters over it and call it his huh even after he got called out? I see you playboi. Even though the moon steals it light from the Sun, no one ever gets the two confused.

I don’t know what part of the game is taking other people’s art, throwing a hideous filter on it, and posting it on Instagram as your own art @vveenooneev, but I guess more power to ya bruh. And calling my #WonderWoman a thot only further solidifies that you just don’t get it. #art #stolenart #MYdrawing

I entered this art contest at Game Informer magazine late last year and completely forgot about it (the Super Princess Peach motorcycle #illustration)…won like earlier this year and completely forgot about it….and then yesterday in the mail this showed up.  I especially like how in the letter it says “while all the items may not be to your liking, hopefully at least some of it will be fun”. At the very least, I have some trade in credit at Gamestop now. #art #artcontest
