Okay, so the guy that stole my artwork finally got back to me.
He submitted his reply to my tumblr, so, I guess he wanted me to post it. That’s what submissions are for, right? Oh well. I’m posting it. Tough shit Mr. Poon.
Just wanted to say thanks for promoting my work. I was wondering why I was getting a spike in sales and when I checked. It showed the traffic was from your tumbler. Its how I found your page. I guess your fans like my work. Thanks.
I took down the poster like you requested no questions asked. You were right, but I see you have a little temper and enjoy attention; still ranted about it. It’s understandable. If you see it anywhere else that I forgot to take down. Just message me. My apologize.
Also you should tell your fans that what you are doing is infringement. At least with the silhouettes. Selling a celebrities silhouette is illegal without their permission. Feel free and google it.
But ya, with this kind of negative personality and immaturity. I can see why you are unemployed. I already said I was wrong and did what you said. People make mistakes and when they do something about it to make it right. You really should expect it. But getting revenge and all this kidish talk. I can see why you hide behind the computer.
AND NOW TO MY REPLY.
Basically, weak-ass personal attacks are the thing that’s actually childish. My anger and the posts I put out there to tell people that my artwork had been stolen were not unreasonable given the circumstances. But why the fuck am I defending my actions to the asshat who RIPPED ME OFF? Look, you made money off my stuff and when I contacted you, you remained silent until right now. Right this minute. Don’t try to make it sound like you’ve already apologized, you’re the nice reasonable guy, and I’m being a prick. You are not the victim, nor are you the victor. You’re a mother fucking thief.
Did you think you would get any kind of sympathy out of me Steve? Really? “Just message me”?? I DID MESSAGE YOU. I GAVE YOU 48 HOURS. I WAS REASONABLE. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO HAVE TO MESSAGE SOMEONE WHO HAS JUST STOLEN FROM YOU AND ASK, NICELY, CONTAINING THE URGE TO BRING THAT FUCKER DOWN, IF YOU COULD MAYBE HAVE YOUR SHIT BACK. AND I GOT NOTHING BACK. YOU STILL HAVEN’T TOLD ME HOW MUCH YOU MADE OFF MY ARTWORK.
You knew what you were doing. You goddamn knew that you were stealing.
Oh, but, hey, you know what’s MORE ILLEGAL than selling silhouettes (which you were doing too in case you didn’t fucking notice)? Did you guess? It’s selling OTHER PEOPLE’S ART THAT YOU FUCKING STOLE.
Do not try to put me down. Do not try to make me feel like the asshole here. You are the one that fucked up, big time. Don’t try to turn this around on me. It won’t work.
And yeah you haven’t had a boost in sales. I see what you tried to do there with that lie.
Oh, and, since you’re against hiding behind computers, Stephen Poon, I suppose you won’t mind me calling you Stephen Poon. Or Spoon, as none call you. Wait, haven’t I seen you on VH1?
A hypocrite as well as a thief! I can’t believe he’s trying to make himself look like the “reasonable” one here! Obviously someone failed English 101, too, because he has no idea how to set up a good argument (not to mention the several grammar mistakes).
You have every right to be angry, Lydia, and you MORE THAN DESERVE EVERY PENNY that he made off of selling those prints. Keep bugging him about it, he’ll either comply and give you the money or dig himself a deeper hole by refusing. KEEP FIGHTING GIRL!
