NFTs - A Solution to Art Theft

Blue Horse Rearing on OpenSeaHappy New Year Readers! I love creating and maintaining AWhiteHorse's free online coloring book. It's fun to create new pages and come up with new ideas and new sketches to share online. But posting my drawings online comes with a frustrating dark side, too.

My frequent readers and long-time supporters call me occasionally, to report they've found one of my drawings on someone else's website. Stolen without even my name remaining - much less a link to their original home or author. I'm glad my supporters called me, but then comes the gut-wrenching feeling when I find out the thieves have made unknown amounts of profit from my stolen drawings.

When I use a search engine to look at any new copyright infringement instance, I'll find so many stolen images after being notified of the first theft. I'm looking for one, but find dozens!

It's frustrating to find sites using my art as stolen revenue builders. It's tough knowing our family has shared this site for twenty-six years only to discover several other sites are profiting from our efforts. Is there something I can do about it? Well, maybe.

An Unusual Coloring Book

Arabian Horse Free JumpingWelcome to Stacey's online coloring pages. This is an unusual selection of drawings, as they are all from one artist; me! My coloring book pages are a collection of my own original sketches of my favorite animals, species, and breeds I admire. I've kept them as rough original sketches on purpose; to let you see how it was drawn. They're not "cleaned up" with even, uniform lines, normally found in commercial coloring books. This is truly a personal collection aimed to let you see how I draw. I want you to see how I find the lines.
