From her FA journal:
Am trying to collect donations to cover the cost of legal fees for pursuing a massive case of art theft overseas. I was asked by my friends to post about it over here as well, in order that they might spread the word for me, but I can't give any specific details (publicly) about the theft itself; sorry. (All that info is in my friends-locked LJ.) Thanks in advance to anyone who would like to help out, and I will keep those who are interested posted on the outcome. My PayPal addy is: swandog[at]swandogstudio.com (would post the donate button here, but it didn't work).
Also, happy birthday to me. Wish the circumstances were better, that I might actually be able to enjoy it some. *sigh*
Please, if you believe in artist's rights and copyright protection, please help her out. Every little bit helps. We can't let these companies think they can get away with this bullshit just because we're freelancers.
Thank you for your time :)
