That illustration was immediately next to one of my logos and I've just seen it has magically disappeared. That is sad and embarrassing.

I just want to thank everyone for the kind words on this illustration. I only posted it to call someone out who stole my artwork but I thank you for the compliments all the same.

It's unfortunate that this happened but I'm glad I caught it. The sad part is that this goes on entirely too much. This is only the second time I've caught someone plagiarizing my work but it's likely that there are more out there that I'll never find our about.

We all just have to keep an eye out for this type of thing and let each other know. I also encourage all of you to copyright your artwork to help protect yourselves. If I had not copyrighted this work it could have easily turned into a massive and expensive headache had she sold this to a company to use as a logo or some other application. You can copyright work on copyright.gov and it's really easy and cheap since you can copyright work in groups. So you could copyright 200 illustrations or logos for one fee of about $35 all online.

And use tineye.com to see if you can find your work posted or in use online without your permission.
