    well we are learning a hard lesson that most people in the "industry" have zero ethics
    not the first time we got ripped off and not the last
    but it was the first time we got ripped off by a locally based mag where at the black rainbow vernissage we mentioned our frustration to a few other illustrators and writers we knew and they said the same thing happened to them
    yet the mag is owned by 2 of the wealthiest people in the city

    Just ridiculous. Another example of people putting little value into what we do.

    i like to write letters too


    Ethics 1. A set of principles of right conduct. 2. A theory or a system of moral values: (Gregg Easterbrook). 2. ethics (used with a sing. verb) The study of the general nature of morals and of the specific moral choices to be made by a person; moral philosophy. 3. ethics (used with a sing. or pl. verb) The rules or standards governing the conduct of a person or the members of a profession: business ethics. You try using "ethics" and pay your freakin' artist's. Either that or well have to send our people to talk to your people.

    Love
