Was there notification of removal? If so, what was the reason given?

Explicit Sexual Content

Was there the opportunity to appeal? If so, did you appeal and what was the response?

Yes, again rejected with comment that the picture showed too much skin.

What, if any, were the consequences of the removal for you?

Not able to create the Advertisement with my latest work-in-progress


I am able to publish this work on Facebook & Instagram, but not as an advertisement. Which is of course ridiculous.

I also mentioned in the appeal that this was a drawing, but this was neglected.
