:icondarecords: is currently closed (if someone is interested in running it note me)
:iconwearepopular::iconda-lithuanians: I'm still thinking about these groups. I will probably still be in charge of them and the features.
:iconda-junkies: Not sure if I mentioned but I left the Junkies team too.

Octopus Accessories - art thieveshttp://www.octopus-store.ro/
this is their store. They are Octopus Acessories
This is their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/OctopusAccessories
They had my drawings printed and were selling necklaces with them. They also lied to me that they did not steal them and took them from from some deviant who supposedly stole them first.
They sent me this link to this deviant :iconxyqueen: but the drawings that belong to me were submitted 12 hours ago. So obviously this couldn't be true since Nijikon was over 12 hours ago, and they had them for sale since 3 days ago.
This girl is so shameless, she lied to my face! She made me feel bad about calling her out and "making a scene" in front of her booth. OMG! And i believed her, i could have had her kicked out of the convention on the spot! She made me apologize for making a scene in front of her booth So she stole my art, and i was the one who apologized.
THAT. IS. WRONG.
Wow, if thievery was a game, she would be the final boss

Do you/a friend Need Exposure for Adoptables? I've recently found people who have made these really nice adoptables, at least artistically I think they're really well done. And then it pains me to see when very few people bid on them, and this amazing creation can only sell for like, $5 or something.
Now I've never tried adoptables, and I'm not sure I completely understand how they work, but what I do know is that it seems artists who do them are really at the mercy of how much exposure they get. In that way, it's much like everything else; if you don't have the numbers, really great work goes unnoticed and sells for a handful of jelly beans.
So I'm going to do a journal that features Adoptables.
Do you have, or know someone who is selling *nice quality* adoptables but really needs exposure on them? Leave a thumbnail or link in this journal, and maybe I'll choose them for my feature. I can't showcase them all, but I'd certainly like to try and get a few out there.
The world gets harder for artists all the time

Screen cap must be uploaded to STA.SH (or to your gallery, if you prefer)

Group Switch Around Meme Results!The Results!
Apologies for the ridiculously late posting, but here are the results of our first group Switch Around Meme collaboration! We had 50+participants, 150+ individual artworks, and a whole bunch of fantastic final pieces, so make sure to take a look.
Thank you to all the participants, all our helper line-art and coloring artists, as well as the admins who helped me manage this event. This collaboration event was met with a great deal of enthusiasm, so we will likely have more (better-organized) collab events in the future.
These compilations were arbitrarily split up into sets of ten, just so that there wouldn't be one giant file:
