Looks like a lot of these are novel covers. I've recognized Eragon, and a Melanie Rawn book, at the very least. How would you go about reporting that, does the 'owner' of the image (aka the publisher or artist) have to report it?

The paint horse with butterfly wings I recognize, but can't recall the artist.

What a retard.

She actually put up a description of how she pirates the images on each charm description.

Screw that... I'll go report the "seller."

How the heck to you make a charm out of artwork?

I know that white dragon can come off of there because it belongs to Mr. Ciruelo, who's book I bought from Barnes and Nobles about a year ago with the SAME picture in it. IN fact that same picture in on the back cover... *Is ticked off*

This person was reported last week and the auction link posted on here too---I'm surprised ebay hasn't done very much, save a few artist's work being taken down. :(

I see: Jim Warren,Wendy Kathleen,Julie Fain,Disney,Nickelodeon, and others I've seen before but can't place.

Some artists have been contacted :)
