So I’ve recently found some of my artwork re-posted here on tumblr from my facebook and deviantart even though I specify I need to give permission before someone has the right to re-post my art. I’ve been getting a lot of questions about why I feel the need to enforce this so I laid it out for people to read. Please be respectful of artists and writers. Even if you credit, make sure it is ok with the copyright holder first. It is common courtesy, the correct legal action, and always appreciated.

  • What happens when multiple people post your work and don’t tell you is that I can’t keep track of where or how much of it is posted. Many people can take those files off your post and re-post them elsewhere without credit.
  • It’s also frustrating when I post artwork myself, get a few notes, then other tumblr users post it on their blog and get thousands. Ultimately, it your account that reaps the benefits.
  • Some tumblr users even delete or edit the credit off before re-blogging (it has happened to me multiple times) and people feel more free to do so when they aren’t re-blogging the post from the original artist.
  • When a post goes viral, that source is guaranteed to be lost or edited out in at least half the re-blogs. When you re-blog a post from the original artist, that means that no matter what someone can go all the way back up the chain to the original poster (in this case the original artist), and that information cannot be deleted out of comments or edited out.
  • When I see someone posting with credit, I have to assume there are many others doing the same thing without posting any credit. Those posts are harder to track and much more infuriating.
  • I love to see feedback on my work. If I don’t know where people are posting it, I’ll never get to see any commentary.
  • When people see posts that aren’t posted by the original artist, they feel it’s ok to use the art in icons, backgrounds, promotional images, so long as they credit. Again, I lose track of where it’s used and the chances of linking images back to me becomes more and more difficult. I can lose commission deals and sales because of it.
  • I’ve had people get tattoos of my work and tell me only after they get it done. When they saw that my art is all over different sites, they think it’s totally ok to get it as a tattoo.
  • I have the right to post my own work on as many sites as I want because I am the copyright holder. It has nothing to do with how many profiles I have on various sites in which I post my own work. The artist has that right, it does not mean other people can do the same with my work.
  • Taking art without crediting is plagiarism, while copying the art onto another site with credit is copyright infringement. An artist always has the right to their copyright. Without written permission from the artist, re-posting is infringement.
  • My art is my income, personally. I like to be in control of where it is and how it’s posted so I can maximize my sales.
  • And in the end, it is the artist’s decision. If someone truly admires the artist, they will respect their wishes and simply ask if they wouldn’t mind their work being posted on tumblr or wherever. It’s just respectful.

I think every writer/artist has that one story/drawing that gets completely skipped over, and they’d never say it aloud, but inside they’re like

'fuck all y'all, that's one of the best things I've done'

plus one story/drawing that everyone loves

'really? that one?’

A project I did in university, asking us to explain something of our choosing.

I chose the Island of Rapa Nui, known as Easter Island, and created a short origin story of how the mysterious heads came to be a part of the Island.

Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).
