....breathe, play, make art...

....Back home until October.  What an incredible eight months this has been traveling the country, making art, teaching art, sharing art, being art.  My soul is overflowing with blessings.

GRRRRRRR....ripped off art???!!!!!!!!!

What do you think of this??? I've been ripped off again! This time i found MY ART on a flag for sale in WALMART!!!!! 

Without knowledge, this is my copyrighted artwork that has been reproduced on a flag made in China and sold in Walmart stores. But they had the nerve to lift my writing out of the image and added TYPE!!!! Wow!!!! (it's MY grandparent flag concept that i penned in 2008  and license to another manufacturer, NOT Walmart!!!) Looks like a few phone calls for some legal assistance are in order for Monday. It's so wrong! 

MY ORIGINAL ART DONE IN 2008- Licensed artwork to a US flag company.
 I BOUGHT THIS IN WALMART TODAY.  My artwork, on this flag MADE IN CHINA where they removed my signature lettering and added TYPE!!!!  This was sold and distributed in Walmart without my knowledge.

What are your thoughts on practices like this??  Can you believe it?!!
