I´m creating that in order to keep actual references( from the cartoon itself )at hand... and because those things were done by Crig and all of the people who actually worked with the show : so those works are THEIRS.

If  you must use something out of it, please CREDIT them.

You can do your own work, too, and I surely would respect( and encourage others do )that as well.

I´m just trying to keep a comprehensive archive where you people can showcase yours and other people could find and fanworks of their interest.

Have fun!
For quite some time now, an apparently shameless art thief and failed con artist has been coming to deviantart, pretending to be an animation professional.  S/he has posted under such names as cartoonsman, Klasky-Csupo, WarnerBrosAnimation, and most recently, CraigBartlett (which got shut down after less than ten hours.  Nice work!).  This person keeps coming back and pulling the same stunts, leading some folks to believe s/he is who they say they are.  I'm personally quite tired of this fibber stinkin' up the place, so I put together a list of things to look out for if s/he should come back.

A big-time name As mentioned above, the poster will pretend to be affiliated with major animation companies, or even a well-known animator.  Remember that these companies and personalities have access to PR firms and personal social media accounts.  If you see Craig Bartlett come on to DA and say that they're working on a new show, it is unlikely that they'll be using a standard user account here.  More than likely, the site would seriously promote their presence.  In addition to that, DA wouldn't be the only place you'd be hearing about them.  The next time you hear someone say that a major voice actor is working on their new show, check  If the show's not listed, they're not telling the truth.

The Anytown Show This seems to be cartoonsman's 'personal' project, a criminally unoriginal concept using several prominent cartoon characters of the 90s all interacting on one show. It's out-and-out theft, and even the youtube account hosting the hackneyed video s/he put together featuring the concept was "terminated due to multiple third-party notifications of copyright infringement."  Other than stealing artwork from both deviants and IP holders, cartoonsman has made multiple pencil sketches on loose leaf notebook paper, which are far from production-level quality.

Horrible punctuation Whoever this is, cartoonsman seems to have some genuine trouble figuring out what commas do.  Their typical posts feature a number of run-on sentences.  Professionals would not represent themselves like this.  At the very least, they would have a proofreader go over their posts before submitting them.

Just a few things to keep an eye out for.  If there is anything I missed, or you've seen this person active elsewhere on the site, please let me know here, or contact any of our other administrators.  Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
