You’re no-one without a watermark.
I couldn’t get to sleep after an online incident so I made this little digital drawing. You carefully place your work online with a description, medium, tags, ownership. Then it gets copied, saved, Pinned, shared, saved, cropped, altered and orphaned. You find it scattered across social media, blogs and web sites.
Maybe it’s casual, careless, carefree or ignorant use of someone else’s work. But considering you liked it enough to use it, if/when the artist says “hey that’s my work” try to be polite at least. Maybe curious, maybe friendly, maybe a little out of sorts – but don’t be a jerk about it.

Painting in progress …

Lovely lovely paint…
Started a new painting with a baby theme and here’s a peek at the drawing for the piece.
It’s going to be in acrylic on box canvas 30cm square and will be a colourful affair as usual.

This guy just appeared in my sketchbook. Who is that?
Excuse the crinkly paper. Or is that him?

My neighbour’s cat Wilbur has taken to wearing bow ties. I saw him in a snazzy polka dot number so just had to draw him.

We saved our 1p, 2p and 5p coins for years and then cashed them in at a Coin Star machine at the supermarket. Over thirty quid. Hurrah!
