HEARTBREAK!!



A good samaritan called to my attention that someone called Debbie "Akiko" Gordon has been stealing images of my artwork from the internet and selling them as her own on her website and in galleries!

Look at this page where she shows the "inspiration" for my work!



Needless to say I am taking this very seriously. Shame on you Debbie "Akiko" Gordon -

UPDATE: It looks as though she's taken down most of my art from her website and FINALLY from her myspace - which used to look a little something like this:

Oh.my.gosh. Liza, I feel for you. I've had this happen to me a few times on a small scale, so I can sort of relate to what you must be feeling and it is such a violation, I know. The nerve of some people. I send my positive energy for your fight, and fight you must. Keep us posted!!!

You are so right - it is SUCH a violation!! I'm so sorry to hear it has happened to you too!

She should be ashamed of herself! I hope you deal with her face to face soon, people like that need to be taught a lesson!

Utterly outrageous, and I hope you get the opportunity to kick her ass!
At least her website isn't working now, some small consolation

that is terrible! i'm glad she took most of your work down and do hope she does the same on her myspace.

Glad to hear she is taking things down, but don't stop pursuing this. If she's dishonest enough to be public about her thievery, she's dishonest enough to be private. I looked at everything and I am STILL shaking my head in utter disbelief. Insanity comes to mind.

Oh my, that is so utterly deplorable. I am so glad someone caught it and brought it to your attention. I'm not sure what recourse you have when something like that happens but I'm glad to hear that they took it down. I'm so sorry.
