Hey, Jess! It's been a long time. *hug* I've been trying to look you up for a long time now.
There's only two pieces in your gallery right now and I hope we get to see your fantastic art again soon.
You're awesome. :D

Kelly!!! *massiveHugGlompTackle*  It's so good to hear from you!  Really great.  I hope you have been well.  And yeah, the gallery got put away for now, art theft blows.  I'm working on things though. ;)

You're awesome too, I love the stuff in your gallery, still great to see the Snape art as well, ha. :heart:

Your pieces are all in storage? I will refrain from 'removing them from favorites' at any cost cause I know they'll come back. What happened though?

Yeah sorry, put them in storage a while ago in reaction to a new round of art and concept theft.  Nothing new really except perhaps my weariness with it.  I know it doesn’t really actually fix anything but it’s the only thing I actually do have control over.  And thank you, yes, perhaps someday I’ll feel like putting it back up again.

Maybe find a website that has a security controls with watermarks. Go to NeneThomas.com, Jonathan E. Bowser's Goddess art site, RuthThompson.com, Robert Lynn Nelson site, JosephineWall.com and just look around at what they've done to protect their works with encoded, embedded watermarks, corner page curls and other tactics. I'd hate to see your work disappear forever cause of some crazy fucker over seas taking your works. Even though your works are digital, maybe place a 'real pencil' to the side of the art to give that extra protection? There are ways to keep the works from being taken. Talk to some website developers and see what they can do for you. *HUGS* Also, would love it if you could....put all your best works into a professionally printed art book. That way people like myself can hold your works in safety forever on our shelves. Love you.

Thank you for your suggestions and concerns.  Very kind of you.  I will say that straight across image theft is less of the issue though.  That’s been a little less difficult to deal with and usually more straight forward to remedy.  It’s the concept theft that’s really demoralizing because it is so difficult to prove often and so hard to actually get anything done about it.  The messages I’ve gotten from people who are doing this and know they are doing this have been quite awful too.  They know they are doing wrong but they know I can’t do anything about it and find it great fun to taunt me.  It’s just been years of very negative experiences now having the things I love and hold dear bastardized and twisted.  I’ve always held that the best defense against this is to stay active, keep creating and keep innovating.  They’ll never keep up.  That’s not so possible for me anymore with my rising health issues, so I’m even less tolerant to see my years worth of work picked through like a personal shopping market for art thieves.  Worn to a nub by it and very weary unfortunately.  I’ve found it a great relief to my nerves to put it all away for now, perhaps when I’m stronger again, I’ll be able to bring it back.  Thank you so much for your concern.  I’m very flattered anybody would even want my works in an actual book too, that’s very nice to hear, thank you.
