Is it true that you did get permission to repost artists artwork? I'm sorry if that comes off rude. Its just that anyone can write that they could have gotten permission and too many people do it without consent. I've had it happen to me with my art so I was just curious
I do! I keep a detailed spreadsheet to keep track of who I’ve asked and what specific conditions I may repost under:
That said, permissions change over time and I try to keep track of such changes, and am also responsive when artists decide to no longer give permission for reblogs, which is relatively frequent. I am apt to make a mistake every once and while, too, though I’ll say I’ve been falsely accused and reported to Tumblr (four or five times) more often than I’ve accidentally published something I should have (twice).
I’m sorry to hear that your work is getting reblogged without your permission. I wish you the best of luck! Thanks for reaching out to me.
