Greetings and Salutations My Fellow Deviants,

My name is Nathan Rodriguez and I am a Leather Artisan. I craft just about anything out of leather, however my primary focus is on masks and armor. I have been working with the medium for nearly 4 years and I only want to go further with my craft. I do occasionally take on commissions, if there is something you would like send me a message either here or preferably at my etsy shop at epicleather.etsy.com

Thank you for stopping by,
-Nathan

EDIT/UPDATE 10/31/2014: Victory!  The image stolen has been brought down!  Thank you so much to everyone for your support and diligence in taking this thief down! This is such an amazing community, thank you again everyone. ^_^

You know I can never fathom why someone would steal art and then claim it as their own, and then accept praise and complements on what a fantastic job they did.  It just seems so hollow and narcissistic, to get acknowledgement from anywhere, even if it is fabricated.  But then again I respect fellow artisans.

The patron of my Tokyo Ghoul Mask notified me that someone took the WIP shots and put their name over my own in the corner.  I try to keep the watermarks as minimal as possible since the giant one over the center is distracting from the image but I may have to start.

Anyway I tried to ask the owner of the page to take it down but we have been blocked and all comments pertaining to correcting the discrepancy are deleted minutes after posted.

Anyway here is the link to the deplorable page: www.facebook.com/GalaxTokyoGho…

And to the image (www.facebook.com/GalaxTokyoGho…

And here are the originals:

I'm not really active on facebook so I cant make any ripples on there, but if you happen to come across that page just know they are art thieves and I would be appreciative if anyone would call them out on it.  The comments may get deleted but make 'em work for the shallow ill-gotten praise. 

Well thank you for listening to my short rant, time to get back to work, I should have this mask finished in a week so stay tuned for more. ^_^
