Once again thank you for all the advice. I NEVER expected this kind of response.
I am overwhelmed and I am feeling a bit uncomfortable at the moment. I need time to think so I am turning my messages off and it’s not possible for me to respond to them.
Once again please stop contacting Disney, websites and any other media. Please don’t start petitions in my name or do any other similar actions. I didn’t ask people to do that for me, I’m not responsible for your comments or opinions on the matter and I feel uncomfortable about it. I wanted some advice and didn’t expect this kind of response. I can’t stop the chain reaction now but I’d appreciate it if people left it alone for a while.
I have a lot of respect for Disney as a company and I am sure that this can be resolved in a positive way.
Once again I appreciate people giving me advice regarding legal matters and what to do next and who to contact but at the moment I just need some time to think.

DISNEY HAVE STOLEN MY ARTWORK
I don’t know what to do. I am so upset. Can anyone help me?
My painting was created back in 2010, (see it HERE) and since then so many people have expressed their love for it, not just on tumblr, but in many places. At least 9 people had it tattooed on their bodies. It’s one of my favourite images I created at University and I was proud of it in many ways.
Disney have used it on a cosmetics bag HERE (look at the back)
and they have produced a Tshirt HERE with a really similar design clearly modeled from my painting
I’m so mad because I have no chance at getting Disney to do anything about it. I had so much respect for the company and now I am just SO upset and disappointed.
Any help, advice or signal boosting would be amazing. And thank you so much to the kind person who messaged me about this.

So 2012 is almost over! In terms of art it’s been a quiet year for me. I was really happy to see my illustrations feature on the Playful Promises gift tins that came out this year. Thank you again to the staff at Playful Promises!
From January till July this year I was working really hard completing my teacher training, which was very time consuming and stressful.
I had a great holiday in August in the USA and after that I got some extra teaching qualifications so that I could teach abroad and thankfully all the hard work paid off as I got a new job as a teacher starting in March 2013 in Tokyo Japan!
In the later part of this year I also did some really exciting things including:
- Helping my friend and artist Elena/ Yamino at London MCMEXPO on her stall both in May and October.
- Going to DisneyWorld and Universal Studios and getting to act like a kid again!
- Attending London ‘Hyper Japan’ in cosplay (Sailor Mars)
- Seeing Lady Gaga and Angelspit in concert again.
- Meeting my favourite Korean actor Lee Byung Hun at the London Korean film festival closing Gala.
- Seeing the Kpop group BIGBANG live in London at Wembley arena, which I can honestly say is the best concert I have ever been to. It was AMAZING!
I will still be using this tumblr to post any art I do whilst in Japan. I am sure there will be many exciting places to go sketching!
I will be documenting all my adventures in Japan on a blog which I will set up soon. I’ve got a really good feeling about 2013 and I can’t wait for it to begin! Happy New Year!
