I am an animator and story-boarder. I like cats, food, funnies, pottery, plants, beards and tiny wooden spoons.
I’m freaking out. I got an email asking me to use art that I had done in as a design for shirts and other stuff. Not to pay me or anything, just to use it so they could make money. I said no thank you, at least they asked. And I’ll be sure to check to see that it is indeed not used without me getting paid…
but it made me wonder…
so I did an image search on google of this piece of work (pretty much a doodle) and its been used as the official logo for a fan page about cats.
its listed on pintrest as a tattoo to get, and there are people with the drawing as a tattoo..
In fact, there are pages and pages of people using this drawing as a logo, or an avatar.. or an icon. But.. how could I check all of them, do any of them credit themselves for drawing it? it makes me feel kind of sick thinking about it.
I don’t know what to think.. I’ve never had this happen to me before. I’m not credited for any of it.. and it feels really unfair. This is how I make my living. And it feels like it’s being passed around. While it’s flattering, it’s also gets me kind of mad.
I’m not the first person this has happened to, and I wont be the last. The internet is a dangerous place. I guess I’m just glad it wasn’t my social security number.
The Minimonsters Cinematic trailer I worked on with the awesome artists here on the minomonster team just reached over 1 Million views! >__<
Everybody clap your hands!!

People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.
This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:
Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.
I was asked to reblog this, info on how to get his gofundme removed for those interested.
Here’s a chunk of my boards from “Into the Bunker” that I directed. Story is a collaborative process, so I can’t take all the credit. Neil Graf and Sabrina Cotugno contributed to this scene as well and I’m very happy with how the episode turned out.
My piece for the Sailor Moon show over at Hub Comics!
I almost just did an illustration of Usagi just looking up at the stars, but then i wanted her to be in a star chart instead. Hope you like it and have fun finding a few little secret details :)
i have a very liberal definition of griffins
going clockwise: rabbit/budgie, white-faced scops owls/house cat, cardinal/red fox, barn owl/grey wolf, harpy eagle/jaguar
all are perfect. I want to touch the first two. I want to touch them a lot.
