Personal Quote: "Don't bump my arm when I'm drawing."
I dislike posting my work with watermarks obscuring and defacing the images.  But I've learned the hard way that they will be stolen if not.  I've never minded people downloading them for inspiration on there own work, or even if they would just like a small image to have.  But full blown theft and misrepresentation of authorship is totally another thing.  I've been targeted with both.  One culprit was using images of mine to represent himself as an artist to scam on women.  Then there was the message I got saying, "I really like this drawing and it would make a perfect desktop image except for the watermark".  Translation, "I'd steal that if it wasn't marked".

Really?  Don't get me started on how some people don't think art, artists' time or work has any real value.

Things have been slow work wise.  Here in Salem, we're all waiting for tourist season to start.  Lots of snow days this year, so the kids are still in school till the end of June!  But soon, the tourists and money will start to flow.  We all hope.
