When Josh Hoopes Stole From His Place Of Work... And From Artist Pasquale Qualano

In our many investigations of the comic indusry conman Josh Hoopes, we discovered that he was working at a saw mill in Sacramento, California, appropriately ACME Saw.

However, it appears now that he is no longer working there, thought through no action of ours.

Instead he was fired by the company for stealing tools from the company and selling them on eBay.

He used the email address artistorms@gmail.com. A quick google discovers that address linked to another attempted comics scam to sell supposed artwork by Art Adams, and use of yet another pseudonym, Joshua DeLava.

Including trying to sell the following forgeries; some based on work in Mike Burkey’s art collection, a man he previously tried to scam.

And googling Joshua DeLava unveils a Freelanced profile of a supposed San Diego comic artist with a portfolio full of the work of other artists, such as Pasquale Qualano, with a stylised JD autograph added. Like this.

Looks like Josh Hoopes has, finally, found some more artwork to try and scam people with…
