Terms & Conditions
Here are the general rules and legal ins and outs regarding my website and the use thereof.
Welcome to my website. This site houses my work. The operative term here is "WORK."
Don't think of the term "WORK" as just the pieces of art themselves, think of it also as the way most people refer to "WORK." When you go to "WORK," you go to your job. I am an artist. This is my job. This is how I make a living. This is how I pay my bills and support my family.
A common misconception about art and the internet is that if it's on the internet it's somehow free for you to do with as you please. This is NOT so.
NO, you may not grab these images and use them for your band's album, or your indie game, or t-shirts, or any other kind of thing that you would then attempt to make part of YOUR work. Many of these images were created specifically for companies to use for their licenses, or they are for my own merchandising.
Every page on this site is marked with a copyright notice. Unless marked with a Creative Commons Copyright, none of these images are to be taken and used for your purposes. Certain images such as press photos and images intended for educational purposes will be marked with the appropriate Creative Commons license. Please review the specific intent of these licenses, as it does NOT mean you have free rein to do with them as you please, especially when it comes to commercial purposes.
I take my work very seriously. I have a very serious lawyer, whom I pay very well, to protect my work and my ability to use said work as a means to support my family. If I find you have taken my work to use for your own commercial purposes, I will pay my very serious lawyer to have a very serious talk with you about all of this.
If you see something on this site that you really like, I'm really glad. I studied hard to learn to draw, and I work hard at it still. If there's an image on this site that you really like and would like potentially use in your project, please do the right thing and click the CONTACT link above. I can't guarantee that the image is available for licensing, or that I'm inclined to allow it to be used, but I can promise that it's the right thing to do, and will provoke a much friendlier response than if you hadn't.
Here's the basic Legalese:
