Hey Nicky, I've stumbbled upon a Facebook page promoting sweatshirt sales, and your Cheshire cat was on one of them. Do you get any money from it or is it an illegal art theft?
NickyBarkla Featured By Owner May 8, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
Hi there, Thank you for letting me know. Sadly I've yet to give permission to anyone to sell my art on sweatshirts, I'm curious if you may be able to please send me their link? Sadly this sort of stuff happens everyday, it's such a shame people just bluntly steal the hard work of artists to sell, such a horrible concept, one that sadly is a struggle to police.
Thank you again for your support, I appreciate the time you took to let me know xx

I'm so sorry to hear that... Ugh, art thieves really make me mad! I can't decide if they're mean or just really stupid. Probably both.

Anyway, here it is (plus they have no sense of design at all) :…

I really hope they'll stop selling it and tell me if there's anything else I can do!

Your work is simply amazing. I only found out who you were because the album art for Act IV: Rebirth and Reprise was so great. I enjoy looking at your work, so please continue.

Can I use your Cheshire cat image for a meme?

Hey! Thanks a lot for allowing the submission of 'The Disappearing Man' and 'Lone Wolf' in the TMA-NewTalents group! If you haven't already, do check out the group info and blog, as your best submitted works will be entered in 'The Mad Artist' project, a free and new Facebook platform for talented artists. Will let you know when that happens, of course. :D  Keep in touch and keep creating!

i have a school project in the next month or so where i have to interview my favorite Australian artist, so i was just wondering if i could ask you a few questions in a week or so about your art and lifestyle? It wont take up to much of your time. :)

Thanks for your consideration
