Nope. : pp

But don't feel bad, you didn't know. It's dA's fault for giving the design to them.

I wish you had this available on Etsy or something. Every time I see it in Hot Topic I sigh and wish I could have a print of it. I want it on my wall so badly!

The art was stolen and given to hot topic without the artists permission. It's one of the eye-openers of deviantart.

I feel kinda bad about having the shirt that has this print on it... The shirt was a gift and I was really happy I got it. But that was before I knew it was stolen art... If I knew it was stolen art, I would've just taken it back! But I'm glad I know the artist who drew this that's on my T-shirt. Sadly, I can't take the shirt back, but I will still appreciate the work that was done. :3 Great job, Rismo!

Too bad you supported art thiefs.
Rismo doesn't allow this artwork to be used commercially. When people sell it on a shirt then it is commercially and they make profit while the original artist doesn't.

Actually, the artists himself (jjharrison.tumblr.com/post/854…) stated that it was the fault of neither hot topic nor deviantart that the shirt was sold. He sold rights to the picture to be used in a comic book, who gave rights to the picture to cartoon network as their contract stated they could, who gave the picture to hot topic legally.
In short: A big misunderstanding from all involved.

I bought this shirt before I knew that it was stolen, but it was because I really loved the picture!... hopefully that makes up for it...
(also were you trying to make it look like the scene it my neighbor totoro when they were waiting for the bus?)

There's a stupid rule when you sign up to DA that states: 

"3.     License To Use Artist Materials. As and when Artist Materials are uploaded to the deviantART Site(s), Artist grants to deviantART a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license."

This means DA can take any art they want, and sell it without giving any money to the original artist. They get all the profit, and DA doesn't have to ask permission. 

I absolutely HATE them for it. How could they just sell this beautiful and hard-worked-for piece?
