So I've heard people call Hot Topic art thieves before, and point fingers at them for supposedly profiting off of stolen artwork. But apparently, part of the reason this happens is because of Deviantart's bullshit terms and conditions that allows the site to sell any uploaded artwork to a third party, eg. Hot Topic.
For this reason, I've decided I'm no longer comfortable posting my artwork on Deviantart. I might leave my account open for the sake of saving favourites and communicating with people, but I'm not comfortable using it as a platform to showcase my work. If you want to see what I'm up to, I have links to other places where I post, so please refer to those. In the meantime, I'm gonna clean up my gallery.
