Ginger of the North!

I'm really a ginger, in Canada. I love Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch. I have great friends and a great job. This blog is a random collection of thoughts, ideas, and stuff I'm currently obsessed with! (Note: this blog is occasionally NSFW. Ye be warned.)




We were recently alerted the site, osomwear, was selling one of Coey’s Sherlock pieces ( 1 & 2 ) as a shirt, which we did not give permission for them to reproduce or sell.
We have contacted the site via email with a cease and desist, and will be checking back with it later.

However, the site seems to sell a lot of (what looks to be) fanwork, and given the use of Coey’s work without permissions, I’m suspecting there’s more art theft at work here.

Please take a look through the site’s inventory and contact the artist(s) of any piece(s) you may recognise. DO NOT contact osomwear; contact the artist and allow them to handle any possible theft. 

some dumb butt stole my work and maybe others? Check it out or signal boost to show other parties! THANKS EVERYONE!
