Well, a few months back it was brought to my attention the a facebook page titled "Metal for the Masses" was using my artwork without permission.
I made the announcement on Deviantart and the awesome people on Deviantart fllooded the facebook page with complaints (Thanks guys!).
Eventually the owner of the page contaced me and he eventually took down the image with the condition that I remove any accussations against his "Metal for the Masses" website and facebook page. I agreed.

Well, it looks like Metal for the Masses is at it again...Last week it was brought to my attention that they were using my artwork again.
I sent a complaint to Facebook, they removed the page, but it seems they have another page.

From what ive heard, Metal for the Masses has a reputation of not only art theft but also reaping the benefits of other people's music.
My lifelong idol and inspiration has passed away .

"Frank Frazetta, Fantasy Illustrator, Dies at 82
By DAVE ITZKOFF

5:17 p.m. | Updated
Frank Frazetta, an illustrator whose vivid colors and striking brushstrokes conjured up fantastic worlds of musclebound heroes fighting with broad swords and battle axes to defend helpless women from horrible beasts, died on Monday in Fort Myers, Fla. He was 82.

The death, caused by a stroke, was  confirmed by Rob Pistella and Steve Ferzoco, his business managers. In a telephone interview, Mr. Pistella said that Mr. Frazetta, who had a history of strokes, had returned from a Mother’s Day dinner with his family on Sunday night and fell ill. Emergency medical services were called and Mr. Frazetta was rushed to the hospital, where he died.

In the 1940s and 50s, Mr. Frazetta drew for comic strips like Al Capp’s “Lil’ Abner” and comic books like “Famous Funnies,” for which he contributed a series of covers depicting the futuristic adventurer Buck Rogers. He also had his own newspaper strip that ran from 1952 to 1953, called “Johnny Comet” (later retitled “Ace McCoy”).

He drew the movie poster for “What’s New Pussycat?” in 1964, and hit his stride executing detailed illustrations of pulp heroes like Conan the Barbarian and John Carter of Mars for their comic magazines and books. His realistic renderings of otherworldly scenarios (and barely clad women) made him the ideal candidate to illustrate the album covers for popular heavy metal albums like Molly Hatchet’s “Flirtin’ With Disaster” and Nazareth’s “Expect No Mercy.”

In November, Wired.com reported, Mr. Frazetta’s cover artwork for the paperback reissue of “Conan the Conqueror” by Robert E. Howard sold to an unnamed collector for $1 million."

RIP, Mr. Frazetta.
This time I was notified that the same design that was stolen before was being sold at as a t-shirt design credited to an artist by the name
of Edgil Pagaduan. It was the same design, except the person redrew it or traced it.
In a small blog, the artist claimed that he came up with the idea from the video game Bioshock (It's funny how he didn't mention my name when asked where he came up with the idea.
Anyhow the, it seems the tshirt company held a contest to see who could create a good t shirt design...Apparently Mr.Edgil Pagaduan won the contest ($100) and took full credit for the design.
The T shirt company was not aware that the design was stolen, but they were very helpful and immediately removed the design.

Here's the original desing from my gallery.

I also want to thank all of the fellow DA members who are keeping an eye out for my work!
Thank you!
