You know how we all have disclaimers. Like ‘what a cow, I can’t believe she just did that (don’t get me wrong, I love her to pieces.)’
Many of you tell me how much you like the art on my blog and some of you even question me as to whether I did it or if not, do I know the artist’s name.
Here is the story of the great art heist, the disclaimer so to speak.
My sister Camille came to spend a week with me during the time I was having chemo. I felt like a complete bag of shit and so Camille brought a bag of computer tricks to get my mind off of myself. She downloaded games, downloaded art she had saved (she loves child-angels), and showed me how I could download the art that I would like.
So after two years of chemo I would sit on the computer and download. I have hundreds of pictures now and I don’t know where I got them from or who the artist is that did them. I just wanted eye candy and to make my brain feel happy.
So, there you have it, almost all of the pictures in my blog are stolen. At one point I wouldn’t have given two shits and now I barely give one.
But, getting to know so many wonderful artists and seeing how hard they work I now try to ask them if I can use their art. If I have the artist name I place it at the bottom of the post in italics because I still haven’t figured out that link thing.
The writing is all mine but the art is not.
Actually now that I am coming clean I should also state that having asked many artists if I can use their work in my blog, I have forgotten who has said yes. I am going to use the defense of chemo-brain at my hearing.
