Before I get underway posting any of my material, I have a few things to say. This blog, like every other blog, is considered a publication, just the same as a book, magazine, journal, or newspaper. Unless stated otherwise, anything that I post on this blog, be it text or pictures, is considered to be my personal property. If I want to include pictures or quotations from other sources in my writings, I need to write down where I got the material from, which includes crediting the original author or artist. Using someone else’s material without citing it as belonging to the original author/publisher/artist is considered an act of plagiarism and theft, and there may be legal consequences. This is especially true if you are making money off of your work.
As you can see, I take this sort of thing very seriously, so don’t do anything stupid. Forgive me if I sound a bit stern, but I want to be very clear about this before I progress any further with this blog so that people know where I stand and what they need to do if they want to use my material. If anybody out there wants to use my artwork or my writings, please contact me about it beforehand.
That being said, I hope that you find my posts entertaining and informative. I look forward to any academic or artistic feedback regarding my work. Take care.
