DO NOT PURCHASE FROM THIS ART THIEF!
EETTSSYY'S NEW SHOP IS DOWNLOADANDPRINT!
EETTSSYY or alias Aleksandra Kinshina alias Alex, SOLD MY IMAGE AND OTHERS WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION! AND ONE CAN ONLY SUSPECT THE OTHER IMAGES ARE STOLEN AS WELL. Eettssyy claimed that the artworks in the store are made by her. So please take a look to see if your artworks and photos are being sold without your permission! And now she comes back as DOWNLOADANDPRINT !
As you can see she carefully cropped out my signature!! I will have to use offensive watermark on all of my artworks from now on!
Her Flickr Account
This is her website My Etsy Treasure.
If you do not want to be associated with an Art Thief,
kindly ask your Etsy Minis to be deleted from the site.

UPDATE: As of Friday, August 28, 2009, this fraudulent shop has been put in a VACATION MODE by the seller. You can watch when she's coming back and see if she's back for a fair business or not. Thanks to everyone who has helped spreading the words!
This matter was kindly brought to my attention by a fellow deviant who pointed me out to this journal post. A quote from the original journal post can be read below
It was just brought to my attention that this person: [link] is selling images of stolen artwork in "high-resolution" printable packs over Etsy. She claims the artwork as her own, and gives all purchasers rights to use and reproduce the images for their arts and crafts. I have recognized work from several artists in her listings, as well as my own.
This is a good example of something that has already been sold, containing artwork from myself and many other artists. [link] If you recognize any of these artists, please contact them so we can get this collectively reported and stopped immediately.
This is where the seller claimed that these pictures are original artwork by her/he. Which actually were a compilation of stolen arts many of them are popular artworks in deviantArt.
And according to the same journal. Etsy only removed the listing and didn't ban the seller! Well, isn't that upsetting! I hope ArtFire will do better than Etsy regarding this matter if it ever occurred.

Please inform me if you have more information about the original creators of the images eettssyy has stolen. I will add them on this list!!
Irony at best; quoted from her listings: like she had the rights to do it in the first place! This disclaimer shows that the seller was fully aware that she was infringing copyrights by selling other people's images!
"Purchase of this collage sheet entitles you to use the images for crafts and artwork, but does not entitle you to reproduce the images in original form for resale or redistribution to others."
In this digital collage sheet she had the nerve to say that these are her original artwork. I recognized the first painting was by this artist and several others are popular deviations in deviantart.
Click on the images to see the real size. They will open in a new window.
You will see the highlighted parts where she claimed that these paintings were her original artwork!
+++ an active listing
+++ sold items
... yeah right.
Imagine the damage she'd caused for these artists as to this date she has sold 998 digital collage images! Update, She ended up with 1,011 sales before she put her store in vacation mode.
Help the true artisans and spread the words. Please contact the original creators of the images you see at eettssyy's store and report the images to firstname.lastname@example.org
