Grey market

About a week ago a strange thing happened: I noticed that my illustration was applied to a product in a weekly arts and crafts market.
The so called artist, Merav Danny, describes her work as "creation from recycled paper". On her display you can find a wide range of Papier-mâché bowls, all of them same type, same size but with a twist: the patterns used on a bowls are different from each other. The newspaper at her work used not only as a material but as a pattern and while it seems ok in cases, she takes the trouble to cut and glue illustrations in a different way to how it was published but in "my" case she simply used the print as it is.
