Original Poster here. I made an account a long time ago and used this bad occurrence as a last ditch effort to get an FML up. I gave up on my account and posted anonymously, so, here I am. Yes, some fool stole my art and posted it to their site claiming it as their own. I got a bit excited that someone liked my art enough to do SOMETHING with it, but then a few minutes later, the logic set in. It's down now, thankfully.

Don't worry OP. At least someone found it valuable if they wanted to steal it!
It's ok OP, no one recognized Van Gogh until after he died. So maybe all you need to do is die and people will notice your art!
If you sign your art ppl who know its yours if the robber tries to sell it now whether they give it back is the question
Art thieves tend to steal art online, not paintings or physical, and steal it to sell prints or such. The art belongs to the artist and they have the right to it unless they give permission or sell it to someone else. Some art thieves also don't even sell it, just want to look better than they are. Which is still stealing but a lesser degree. All is extremely disrespectful to artists and I've seen many artists ready to quit because of it.
I have signatures on all of my art. Art thieves cover them so that people think they were the ones that did the art. I've gotten my art stolen, the person sold prints of it, and it took a while until somebody notified me of what had happened. Its not that they 'give it back', its just that you have to fight with them until they agree to take it down.
