Anonymous asked: HAPPY BIRTHDAY EAT LOTS OF CAKE
Thank you kindly! I didn’t eat any cake (not a fan) but I had a lot of cocktails and nice food in Gold Class at the movies :) Although the waitress spilt an entire mojito on me, poor thing!

Anonymous asked: File a copyright claim with tumblr! Don't let kids steal credit for your work like this. The more it gets passed around, unsourced, the more chances of someone else taking it. Reupload the original yourself! Claim all your works bc they're very good.
There’s really no need to file a copyright claim. This has been around for ages, edited and posted without credit or whatever over so many websites it’s a lost cause. Most of the times it’s just ‘tweens’ submitting it that have no idea what a source is, and my signature is relatively intact on the bottom. I’ve only ever seen one person try to claim it as their own on DeviantArt by drawing over my signature and watermarking it, but I managed to get that taken down (why anyone would want to claim this as their own is beyond me. The eyes aren’t even the same size wot).
It’s a drawing that took little time and effort to do, which is why I’m surprised it’s my most popular. Well, not really. It seems to appeal to the Tumblr masses because it’s ‘angsty and hipsterish,’ when really it’s just a trivial drawing that is lacking in every area possible. I’ve already re-uploaded the original and now watermarked it but with so many of these floating around there’s a bit of a snowball effect going on. If people are going to post my art around without asking for permission or crediting back to me, I’m glad they choose this one because it’s really quite terrible (no, it really is compared to my other work).
I am impressed that my not-so-good artwork is so well-received but disappointed that it’s not my better artwork (or the fact that no one on Tumblr knows what a source is haha!). Anyway here’s the proper version. It really doesn’t bother me with this one at all. I could sell the original for a Happy Meal it means that little to me.
