Stolen art sold at conventions

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 15, 2013, 12:03 PM

Hey guys! I had a great time at SacAnime but while I was there, I saw a vendor's booth called Hidden Supplies selling sakimichan's Kakashi painting Younger Kakashi by sakimichan

I asked her if she gave permission for this or not, and sure enough, she didn't. I think it's safe to say that the rest of the $25 mats sold at the booth were also using stolen art, but I don't recognize any of the artists. Here are some photos of the booth and all the mats are also listed on their website…. Please take a look and report the images you recognize to the respective artists so that they may take the proper legal actions against these these people. Thank you! :hug:

This is why I am hesitating and probably won't put any of my art on here-How do i know some douche bag in europe or in the states or anywhere won't steal from it? Its the risk you guys all have made and idk if i can risk my work without any copyrights yet-haha no

That's terrible. I mean I can kind of understand buying a painting or picture (DA print) and then wanting to sell it because you don't want it any more. But selling copies and prints of it yourself (especially with no given rights or consent from the artist) is totally WRONG. Do what chibi-rai-chan said here. Email them. Tell them what happened. They'll sort it out.

Contact Jodon Bellofatto, and his e-mail address is Have the booth name and number from the program to help get it removed and them in trouble

With cases like this sometimes I can't help but wonder do the know what they are doing is wrong? I mean the Internet is full with morons with more discovering it every day. Sometimes I think these people just might be stupid enough to think hat just because they found something on the Internet they can use it for whatever they want. It's a shame really...I would love to make a bunch of playmate but I'm not about to steal someone else's hard work to make a profit for myself.
