On Copyright - The Importance of Knowledge
In my previous journal I wrote about an art misuse case which has now been successfully resolved. It was not a pleasant experience but looking back I feel that it was very necessary. I learned a lot about dealing with art misuse and theft cases. I think the other party also learned something.
As unfortunate as it is, I think it is vital for an artist to experience a case in which their art has been stolen or misused. The party that is using copyrighted content without permission often tries to manipulate and scare the artist into submission. This is where the importance of knowledge comes into play. When the artist knows their own rights they can defend themselves better and “win” the case - unless the party that is against them is a complete asshole that won’t listen to reason.

Hello, and welcome to my gallery!
I've always drawn for the love of it and have been drawing on my own for years, and am currently pursuing a career in art . I enjoy drawing, sculpting, digital art, and painting.

I'm mostly inspired by the dual natures of what is seen as beautiful and what is seen as ugly or dark. To me, overt beauty is, how do I say... too beautiful, too easy, and therefore not very beautiful. Contrariwise, what is often seen as repulsive or unappealing often teaches us a little bit about ourselves and about others, and that to me is truly beautiful.

I enjoy creating work that flows both very light and fluffy or very dark and brooding, but my favorite works are the ones where I am able to marry the two in ways that both entice the viewer, yet can make the viewer ever-so-slightly uncomfortable.

So, welcome again friend, to Sweet Grotesquery!
