Dean Yeagle brought to our attention a fake original drawing of his art for sale on Ebay. Here’s the link:
It’s an obvious crude copy of his art and not done by Dean. Looking at the other auctions this same seller has for sale, the pieces on offer look highly suspect to me. Whether this dealer is knowingly selling fake original art or has no clue what he is actually offering is not for me to say. This is a good example of why it is important to be careful when purchasing originals and to familiarize yourself with the artist before buying artwork so you don’t get duped.
Dean Yeagle has already filed a complaint with Ebay about this fake representation of himself being available. As of this writing it looks to have been pulled down, but as possibly sold to someone who unknowingly thought it to be genuine, unfortunately.
If you notice more fake artwork by this dealer or at any other time, I encourage you to notify Ebay.
