Illustrator Adrian Valencia unfortunately just discovered an online shop selling clothes which use his illustrations, unauthorized of course. The blouse in question features this image, modifying a few colours here and there: 

I hope this has a happy ending and he finds out how this all occurred, and can encourage them to put a stop to it without the pain of a legal battle (remember, suing someone is not only incredibly expensive, but a lawsuit can go on for months or even years).
Far too many of us are familiar with situations like this, but the upside is that an active online community is our best defense.

Adrian Valencia gives wonderful tips on building a portfolio, and shopping it around. These are standard, basic, important essentials. These never change. The secret is no big secret: Make the work you want to get hired for, and hit the pavement. 
Twelve years ago I was very new in London and when I decided I wanted to test myself as an illustrator, I didn’t know where to start. I spent two months building my portfolio ( let me tell you…it wasn’t amazing ) and once it was ready I took notes of art directors’ contacts from the magazines I wanted to work with. My English wasn’t great and on top of that I was clueless about the industry but in a way I guess I had nothing to lose. I had a business card and a few printed pages with my illustrations to be remembered. No website just a printed portfolio. I called every single publication in London and I was lucky that most of them agreed to meet me. (via Draw Adrian, Draw!: Once upon a time…)
