i'm sorry about your recent art theft experience on flickr/tumblr. i also left a comment. what she did was disgusting and disrespectful. your art is beautiful and very original. i look forward to seeing more
this is a beautiful piece of work. i left a comment on the other artist's flickr page. hopefully they either credit or take it down. it's a shame because the artist seems pretty talented, but that wasn't an act of inspiration, which is all it should have been.
I can assume you get that kind of comments all the time, but I'd really love to know where you gets your inspirations from. I've seen a lot of flowers, branches, tree-like features... Has it anything to do with a symbolism for something?
