I Give You My Heart by Wajaholic I Give You My Heart by Wajaholic
The second drawing i ever edited in photoshop, since I uploaded it to DeviantArt in 2004 it seems to have made its way around the world.

Thanks for letting me know about this, I didnt realise people were selling it. I didnt copyright it back when I drew it so I'm not sure whether I can do anything about it but I'l contact them anyway. Thanks :)

because this has been used so much....it kindda makes you wonder really how much money you could have got by having people pay to use it.....but then again, i guess that sort of thing put people off.... /: ....I congratulate you on making this picture popular :D well done!!! ^___^

So YOU are the original artist..?

You actually came with with this idea in the first place?

Gosh, I remember seeing this when I was about 14 P:


Anyways, i like it, I love the whole scribbly-dark-semi-crazy-love-struck thing :3

Congrats on it getting so famous.

I wouldnt say its famous, its just been thrown around the internet and stolen so many times that its become well-known, haha.

I drew it nearly 5 years ago now, im glad you like it :) thanks

um, just pointing out what i'm seeing, so don't kill me.
you said you made this in photoshop, but it's not.
it looks like you scanned a pen and ink or took a pencil drawing and used the magic erase tool in photoshop to erase the white background.
if you fullview this picture you can still see the flack the eraser tool left behind, especially between the letters.
i've seen this same picture all over the place, and i hate to say this, but this isn't the original.
if you're posting artwork you didn't make, that's stealing and grounds for banning on DA.
i'm just warning you that if you keep it up things could get rough for you quickly. :(

Its actually drawn in biro, then i scanned it and messed around in photoshop (like it says "the second drawing i ever EDITED in photoshop", i didnt say i made it in photoshop). You dont have to believe me but i can guarantee you wont find anyone thats uploaded it before the date it says on this image (20 September 2004) because i uploaded it to deviantart about 6 days after i drew it. You can email them and report me if you like but they'l just go through their database and see that i was the first person to upload this image.

Im not getting anything out of it so why would i be trying to pass it off as my own if it wasnt. Its got its own life on the internet now apparently so im happy to leave it like that, haha.

Well i remember drawing it nearly 5 years ago while sitting in my pyjama's watching TV with my mum. Good times! But its upto you whether you believe me. Maybe i was dreaming :O dun dun duuuuun

Most of the re-takes on it are better than my original drawing anyway, haha.

Well, if you actually were the first one to draw this, how do you feel now that it became a semi-internet meme picture for everyone to use? o:

Wajaholic Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2009  Professional Filmographer
At first i was flattered that everyone liked it and was being used, but then people started telling me theyd seen it on t-shirts (that i hadnt made) and that people had used it for band logos and whatnot so i was kinda annoyed. But its made such a life for itself that i dont mind anymore, i drew it years ago and didnt draw it to become 'famous' or make money so i havent lost out on anything.

If people wanna use it then thats fine by me, and if people wanna pretend its theirs then fair enough, i have other stuff going on so i cant be bothered chasing every 12yr old that thinks they did it for a drawing i did years ago :)

anyway, thanks!

Haha i wouldnt say its world famous, but it keeps popping up everywhere somehow. Its flattering but when little 8yr olds start arguing with me saying they did it, it can get quite anoying! :P

Use it for whatever you like, most people have anyway and i guess thats how its become so well known.

Im glad you like it, much appreciated :)

I drew this on september 10th 2004 and uploaded to my website the next day. Then decided to post it on here on september 19th so its pretty impossible for you to find anyone who has posted it earlier. Thats the only proof i have that i drew it really, i have the original sketch but i guess anyone could just draw a sketch and say thats the original, haha.

I know what you mean though, it is all over the internet and alot of people try to claim it as their own. Thanks for believing its mine :)

hmm.. it 's ok dear... but, sorry to hear that. But your original drawing always looks the same. No one can actually draw exactly like how you drew it. Anyway, cool work, that is. Why don't you ask the people who use it in DA? If so, what did they say?

I usually do message them if i find a copy, most of them dont reply, some say "sorry i didnt realise it was yours" and some fight back and say they drew it and get scared when i bring up copyright issues. Haha

Hi!!!
hello need tell you something that really bothers me, the unscrupulous individuals who copied and stick work outside giving credit them.
Why I saw your drawing in several blogs and any reference to where was removed, for you in this type of unscrupulous puts your brand of water or the stamp of DA...

bye!! and good luck!
