Cecil’s birthmarks changes shape and movement with his emotions - they flare up when he’s flustered or angry, hide under clothing when he’s scared or embarrassed, move rapidly when he’s excited, softer shapes for good feelings and rougher shapes for bad ones etc.

He’s kinda self-conscious about them since it’s like wearing your heart on your sleeve, but Carlos thinks they’re pretty (and also scientifically fascinating).

Today, I read an article about a woman with HIV who was raped. The man that attacked her is now HIV positive. All of the commentary surround this was about how she should have told him she was HIV+ and that women with HIV should have a badge or special underwear so that this doesn’t happen to another man. It is 12:12am and I am already done with the world. 

That is rape culture

THIS POST WINS FOR THE MOST HORRIFYING THING I’VE READ ALL DAY

I don’t like doing this, but my artwork has been stolen, modified and is being sold! I need your help!

A follower just announced to me that one of my artworks, Fissure, has been stolen and sold at Comic Con and through the stall’s corresponding website http://www.girlsandcorpses.com (it has also been modified and they have removed my signature, and of course, none of this was done with my permission). 

My original ‘Fissure’ artwork: DeviantArt | Tumblr | Facebook
The stolen T-shirt design: Website | Facebook

Ironically, their website states the following: “All related characters and elements are the trademarks of Girls and Corpses Magazine ©2003-2008. All material and artwork on this page and all linked pages are the property of Girls and Corpses Magazine and are protected under United States and International Copyright Laws. All Rights are Reserved. No permission is granted and, in fact, it is strictly forbidden to make use of this material, in whole or in part, for any purpose without obtaining written permission.”

This is a complete and utter lie as they have stolen MY artwork and infringed on MY copyright. But alas, I’m not sure what I can do. I’ve messaged both the Facebook page and the Website, but I can’t really afford to start jumping through the hurdles of legal action, and I’m sure they won’t reply and will delete my message. I feel as though some public awareness might help the problem, but I’m not sure. If anyone can give me some pointers that would be greatly appreciated while I figure out the most appropriate course of action.

I will also be designing a nice, fancy and quite conspicuous watermark (compared to the one I have now), putting it on all my previous artworks and the ones made from now on, and embedding all my signatures into the drawing itself to make it harder for removal (as I have been doing so recently).
