ATTENTION anyone who loves GRUMPY CAT!
This artist is Eric Proctor, also known as Tsaoshin on deviantART. He has painted many wonderful pictures of Grumpy Cat in Disney scenarios. You have most likely seen his paintings somewhere.
You might also want such a painting in the shape of a shower curtain, a mousepad, or other, and have seen such merch on eBay.
PLEASE DO NOT BUY THEM unless they're sold by Proctor himself!!! He, like me and any other halfway decent artist, digital or traditional, spends many hours on each painting and usualy doesn't get a lot of money for it. It's his passion he shares for the world to enjoy, NOT TO ROB AND MAKE MONEY OFF HIS BACK!!! If they're sold, they're his and only his to sell.
Those eBay merchants, mostly Chinese, are basically robbing him! He is their unwitting slave, he produces what they will then steal and sell for a profit!
Since he's offering relatively large files for our enjoyment, he can't really control where they end up and to what ends. Artists like him are at the mercy of decency, which is declining on the Internet. Please offer yours.
Please, I know his paintings are lovely, but do not support the robbery of hobby artists who are not making a lot of money off their work, if any. Please respect artists like Proctor and myself by not ever buying our art from a source we haven't approved! There is a link to his shop, where he makes the rules, on his profile. Please buy his work through him only. It's the respectful thing to do as he's the one doing all the work.
