UPDATE: I'm done with this issue. I've talked to the blog author and to some of the people directly involved. Life is goin' on!

You have total reason to call her up! Art thief, I don't think so! She's going down. That sucks!

ug, GROSS. looks like she took the post down (there's only two posts up on her blog from 09 at the moment). Call her the hell out; that's super uncool & illegal.

People like that are just shooting themselves in the foot. If you can't even come up with your own work for a portfolio, how can you ever expect to stay employed if you even by sheer luck get a job in the first place? Looks like she removed the posts though. I only see two there at the moment.

It gets better. Two of my coworkers went to school with her. Basically one of them wondered how she miraculously got better overnight, and the other simply frowned when I asked if she knew her.

I talked with her teacher last night, and she gave the same spun story to him that she was only cleaning up other people's work. It's pretty sad, like Mary said, she's just shooting herself in the foot. She's earned a reputation with all the social gaming companies out here in California over at PopCap, as well as Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network.

I think I wouldn't be shaking my head if she simply came clean and said, "Yup, I stole it. I'm an ass. I'm sorry..." But the whole spin doctor storytelling is pretty sad too.
