Edit: Thank you so much to everyone who commented or read my last post about the art theft! 

Thanks to you, not only were you able to stop my artwork from being illegally used and sold, but I’ve been keeping an eye on “Pokemon Tee Store” in the past week since this started, and it seems like they’ve taken down much of the artwork that they likewise stole from other artists! I’m sure that was a direct result from you guys, so feel good about yourselves!

Talks with the Pokemon Tee Store are on-going, but I hugely appreciate the efforts that everyone put in - they really had influence. I’ll keep you guys posted if anything new turns up.

I’m very grateful for the support that I received, and I can’t thank everyone enough!


A very kind person recently notified me that one of my favorite pieces I painted last year has been stolen and is being illegally sold without my permission, apparently as a limited edition set of phone cases.


This is my painting: Commission for 1MrGray by eldrige

Which was a commission for the awesome :icon1mrgray:

The pages listing the artwork are these two here: 

1. On Facebook: www.facebook.com/2145709689399…

2. On TeeChip.com:
 teechip.com/depmehon#id=1000&a…
As of this writing, there are about 14 hours left in this limited edition "campaign."

You can also see that they've edited out my watermark.

Not only is this an artwork I painted, but it is also a cover for 
1MrGray's story, and features his character. A character who has his own personality and history behind him.

I do not have a Facebook account, so I can't post a comment there myself, but yesterday I sent an email to both "Pokemon Tee Store" and TeeChip.com's support emails. After it was pointed out to me, I also just now sent an email to TeeChip.com's copyright infringement email address. 

I am seeking to remove the posts by this “Pokemon Tee Company” that are illegally using, selling, and profiting from my artwork.

If anyone could possibly write a short comment on this company's Facebook page or on the post linked above, letting them know that the artwork is stolen, and perhaps linking to my DeviantArt submission, I would be very grateful.

I hesitated writing about this publicly since I already sent emails to the respective companies and am waiting for a reply. But after hearing the advice and concern of other artists and friends, I’m opening up about this, in case there are others who have also had their artwork stolen and illegally sold by this seller.

In addition to their Facebook link, this is their store's website showing more of their products: PokemonTeeStore.com

Please notify any artists you recognize, as I'm sure they would appreciate it.

Thanks very much to anyone who sees this or writes a comment!

Commission for Pelleelle: Red Rakima
Commission for :iconelias501: aka Pelleelle!
His megamacro anthro Typhlosion character, Red Rakima, peacefully admiring a bustling city's nightlife below!
I've never drawn a macro character before - I had a great time playing around with the scale in this painting!
Many thanks for a cool idea for a scene, Pelleelle!

Exeggutor Alola Form

Sketch of Exeggutor’s Alola form! This is the most troll Pokemon ever, and I love it.

My small way of thanking everyone for your help last week. :) Thank you again!

I’ve been eagerly wanting to sketch this evolution since I first saw it in the reveal trailer weeks ago - as it put the widest grin on my face, haha - and this seemed like a great time to finally do it!

Commission for Pelleelle
Commission for :iconelias501: aka Pelleelle!
Featuring his characters, as well as a cameo from his friend, MRGamer01's character, on an evening out at a cafe!

The two feature characters are Pelleelle's Henrik the Mega Mawlie and Yinaz the dragon! Yinaz eyes her drink with slight suspicion, as Ruby the Jolteon watches Yinaz from behind the counter, a mischievous expression on her face. Red the Typhlosion and Otto the rabbit are occupied by tasty pastries, while Tabitha's sandwich falls victim to one of Henrik's hungry maws!

As for why Yinaz is eying her drink with suspicion, and what's behind Ruby's fixation with Yinaz? Well, you'll have to take a look at Pelleelle's version of this painting to find out! Haha. Be sure to check out the FA link on Elias501's DA page, as he's more active on FA! He has more info about his characters, and about this scene, in the version of his painting in his FA gallery. :)

I had a lot of fun painting all the characters and background features in this scene! Food is always satisfying to paint. :) Henrik, as an anthro Mega Mawlie, was also one of the most unique characters I've painted in this style - really enjoyed the process! And dragons and feathers are always a pleasure!

Thank you very much again for a fantastic idea for a scene, Pelleelle!

Red Rakima, Otto, Henrik Bluebird, Ruby Rakima, and Yinaz belong to Elias501
Tabitha Snowpaw belongs to MRGamer01

Thank you for linking this and asking me! Yes, it was brought to my attention late last week, and I've since been attempting to contact the company to have them remove it from their website, and I have also been reporting their Facebook post.

If you could possibly spread the word to your friends that this company is selling stolen artwork, and encourage them not to buy from them, I'd be very appreciative!

My friend also wanted me to warn you that this company will will delete any comments about copyright infringement and block the poster from their FB page - which convinces me that they have malicious intent with what they're doing.

Thanks again for notifying me, it means a lot!

You have made some great Pokemon artwork. Is it alright if I use some of it for a project I'm working on? It's a fan made card/board game focused more on strategy than collecting.
