Sugio (aka Mark Welker according to FA) Discredits artist, Copyright Infringement, Art Theft

The user Sugio Of furaffinity.net Also know as Mark Welker has submitted an image I created for a concept piece I did for free of his fursuit to a Spencer's Gifts for textile reproduction without my permission. Regardless of the copyright laws in place, I merely asked in a note that he just credit my name and I could even sign the shirt.

But that was asking way too much

Here is my original artwork concept for his fursuit, a piece of artwork that was created before any money transactions, and was used to express what the final product may look like. Original Artwork (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8525545/)

He began submitting this image as a design for a t-shirt (almost two years later) through spencers gifts "design-a-tee" program. (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7284881/) ( Edit: user has deleted the submissions image can be found here http://oi50.tinypic.com/j5v95t.jpg )  and other apparel (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8575234/) ( Edit: user has deleted the submissions image can be found here http://oi45.tinypic.com/2zybltk.jpg )

(The hidden posts are My pleas to him to give me credit after I noted him. He kept deleting my posts, so I re-post up to the point where I have given up.)

I found this out later and asked him through notes to please give me credit for the work that I had done...
His reply was slanderous and completely uncooperative.

He then begins to claim the artwork of his own creation (http://oi50.tinypic.com/52zamt.jpg)
He now claims to have created the artwork in question.

It doesn't stop here
He went on to post a slanderous FA journal trying to gain support:

All I wanted was credit for the artwork that I did, instead, I get flame war.

Sugio is known for being belligerent, arrogant and rude when it comes too commissions.
Do not give him your contact details unless you like to be messaged and called more than once a day. Most certainly don't him your address, for he will show up unannounced as well.

EDIT/UPDATE aug 6 2012

I have now been blocked by the user..


I tried to reason with him again and found myself to be blocked.

EDIT/UPDATE aug 6 2012

He found A_B post and has posted it on his fa.

This Issue Is now resolved!
I'm so proud of Sugio for doing the right thing!!

This can be marked as resolved!

Edit: 9/16/2013 at 8:56 am EST

Issue not resolved!

I gave sugio the benefit of the doubt thinking he would let me sign the shirt...

(warning there is some harsh language used by sugio in this conversation)


The fursuit post was in regards to his review post, and wanting to make sure people had my side.

I Am very much saddened to say that is not resolved and more then likely wont be able to be threw personable contact  any longer.
l would have liked to given him the benefit of the doubt but now I must warn you even farther that his childish behavior is not improving.

I have given him more then plenty of time Finnish his end of the bargain.

He's burned the shirt
Claiming I never showed to events I never fully agreed to go to. I have son and can't just go gallivanting off to meets with 10 month old in a difficult spot money wise.

He sent me copy of him burning the shirt. I just want this to end I don't have time for this childish back and forth with him anymore.

Edit: 10 10 -2014 I know It's been a long time, I feel as I fi can post this link with out starting another war now : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0WMyuOseQOTWjNybE1CRVhEbnM/view?usp=sharing
