as some of you might now from past journals and links on facebook... i have problem with keeping this one peace of art under control, it keeps getting posted on different webpages, blogs, and such, with out my permission. i've given up the point less fight. but theirs two things i can't stand.
heres the pic [link]
one is people posting it up like its there own, i seen the image up on flicker and have had to report it a number of times on facebook. i really don't mind you using it as long as you give me credit. don't draw, trace, or remove my signature. WTF! and it's not cool to crop it all up, either.
but some guys are nice they will add a link and your name on the bottom... after you ask! and give you lame excuses. like we didn't know it was yours we thought is was the real cover. bull! if your a real fan of the book if you read it even once, you'd know the real cover, and not knowing even that makes you (ironically) a big fat phony!!!
but some guys choose to ignore me all together, some even block my public comments. and they won't right back and they get away with it cause they're in another country, cause they know i don't have the resources to fight back. and i hate it, all i can do is bitch and complain. yes it cool to have your art be posted and shared, and its a sign of "hey people like my stuff." how many artist out there would love to have at least one peaces of art become viral. but it's not all fun when your a starving artist, looking for work, looking to make a living. and the large newspaper read by hug number of people, takes your art work and acts like they don't owe you anything. if you can't count on large company to be professional then who can you count on. your art is used for their editorial and it looks nice and many get to see it... but you reap nothing from it.
heres the link... [link]
heres some other smaller guys using it...[link]
these guys added my info at least... [link]

one of the few people to ask... [link]
and i found this while i was writing this up, lets see how this goes... [link]
i'm so tired of this whole business! "I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes." now i see why!!! (that was from the book in ase you didn't know) to think these are only the links that are still up or that stuck out to me, there are many more... i don't know why maybe cause of my constantly looking holden up, but google won't search through my DA site, maybe it heard one of my past rants about this issue. but it's still shows other guys using my pic so it kinda funny! lol
