Stolen Art

I received an email from my friend informing me that my illustration together with a number of artworks were apparently stolen from the Artinsite Magazine. Those artworks were supposed to be used as front piece art for the magazine's maiden issue. The magazine was launched last January 2009 and I was happy that my work became a part of such collaboration.

Sadly, the artwork would never be used for the magazine because it's gone. The link from artinsite magazine have displayed the scanned copies of the stolen artworks.

I hope who ever did that would choke on all the artworks he has gotten his hands to, not that I'm angry, anyway.

(Above) This was the piece I sent for the magazine, entitled: Toadstool Company

But come to think of it I'm not really annoyed with what happened. Maybe the thief just fancies toadstools with weird faces on it.

  1. Thats a real shame. I hope it turns up safe and sound somewhere. I suppose if you look on the bright side, you could take it as a sort of compliment - someone out there loves your work and simply couldn't resist it!
