Hi! It looks like you've had some problem with art theft on this piece before, but I was at the Motor City Comic Con today and saw your Art Nouveau Avatars piece being sold as a poster by a booth there ): unfortunately, I didn't manage to catch the name of the company that was selling them, but it looked like they had several pieces of stolen work from various artists alongside their normal commercially printed stuff. I thought I'd give you a head's up, and I'll try to see if I can figure out the name of the company!

Thank you for letting me know; I've had lots of issues with that but given that this would be an american company I can actually do something about it.

If you get any more information like the company name, a business card, a photo of the booth, or the booth number I can probably figure things out from there but I need just a bit more.  Thanks for the tip!

I was going to message you about the same issue before I saw that someone had already done so. I have run into the same booth twice now. They go by the name "Pix Posters". At the 2 cons I have seen them at, I have confronted staff about the issue, the 1st con being really immature about the whole situation but the 2nd con assisted me in removing the stolen work from their booth.

There is a unfortunate thing about Pix Posters however, they do have a website but it is full of broken links and they refused to hand over any type of business info to myself or the staff once confronted. I am writing out a post about them for a facebook artist group so hopefully they can assist in getting these guys banned from the con circuits. They are mostly seen at comic conventions, but I have been notified that they have been spotted at a few anime conventions as well.

I scoured the internet for a while, and was able to find a clear picture someone took of the booth on instagram (scontent.cdninstagram.com/hpho…)
It looks like it was Booth #1227. I hope this can help get things sorted out!

Hey thanks a lot for letting me know about this.  I never really thought my stuff would show up on ebay like that but...there it was.  Turns out there were actually about a half dozen different sellers making prints of my work once I found them all.

I contacted ebay and it looks like they've removed almost everything.  It's super cool that you took the time to track me down and let me know.

You have some really good art here. Though I am not a big fan of Avatar, I do love how you have taken to the mucha-esque theme. Your rellay doing it well and should expand on it more! :)
