there is also another 'class' that i'm taking:
both these aren't so much traditional 'classes'. every other week an 'assignment' is posted and then it's up to the 'posters' to critique others work. does that make sence? there are some amazing artists on both sites but the people on the 'bellefree' site really go the extra mile to give intellegent/helpful advice. both are absolutely free.
ironically i'm living in one of the old 'crash worship' apartments (the danforth building) now but i remember this poster was one (of the many) kozik posters that i saw there that got me inspired to do posters. thanks frank! good to hear 'crash worship' is still doing the naked fire thing.
gink* well, right now i'm hoping it's just the 'young-n-ignorant' syndrome. i've been there before myself (...queen victoria thru a tizzy fit over my 'dead lincolns' poster).ok, joke aside, i do want to give the chance to make amends. but...if i don't get some answers and an apology then it is time to turn it over to 'the dogs' (...yes, i have 2 lawyers on retainer. they are old friends whom i helped thru law school in exchange for such a situation. they are very good and extreamely ready to fight for me ). and yes, if i call them out they will get 'rabid'. not only could/would they sue the artist but also go after "danny's ancient art tattoo & body piercing"
and "the empty glass". both these establishments profitted from 'the art theft' and are liable ( the extent of which depends on the state but, trust me, no state is cheap. ) so....
these are the 'amends' i want:
a): written apology (both emailed and 'posted' on www.gigposters.com)
b): detailed discription on where and how you got my art work.
c): detailed discription on how you manipulated my art for the poster.
d): any and all posters and merchandise containing my art.
e): absoulutly all moneys made from any use of my artwork.
***all the above is just a suggestion....if you want to get legal....let's go for it!
