WHO CAN SELL MY ART?

Me and my family and friends. In addition to this some vendors have a license to sell my work, such as dakimakurapillow.com or have a contact with me to sell my art by proxy, please contact me if you are worried about any vendor.

I work with wholesalers in different areas of the country, so if you see my art sold by someone other than me and are worried, please ask to see their contract.
