[Update on stolen art]

cymphony:

Anime-alley has emailed me personally with an apology. They have also removed all their online stores. I didn’t really expect it to go this far, but in the end it was still their responsibility to ensure the legitimacy of the items at their store. Especially when purchasing items that are too cheap to be true, it probably is. I will consider it an apology accepted, so next time we see them around on the net I hope they’re selling legitimate merch.

It seems that they bought the items from TaoBao, a website known for really cheap imitation items, based in China.

Please, please support the artists directly when you can if they have their own store.

After a bit of digging, a really helpful twitter user managed to ask the Taobao store in question to remove the artwork they stole from me. Unfortunately I can see the rest of their store is full of stolen artwork used in charms but they never upload the actual artwork, so I could not find the original artists based simply from charms.

Please do NOT buy from them: If there’s any way you recognize the original artists from the artwork they’re selling they would remove it upon request;; But I can’t contact them myself (my mandarin it really bad, I don’t know how to talk to them even if I could)

Lastly just a huge thank you for everyone that helped contact storenvy and signal boosted the original post. I didn’t expect it to get so much attention on social media this quickly, but your support really helped me and the other artists. Thank you very much.
