i have seen a lot of people reposting your work they always say it's yours but i can't find half of the things they do, do you have any other site where you post everything? i tried going through hasthags but i can't find half of it :(
- I post pretty much everything here on tumblr (LINK).
- I do post sketches and works in progress on my twitter (LINK).
- And I have some art that I’ve done for my comic over on plusKJ (LINK)
It’s possible that what you are seeing is artwork that people have scanned from one of my books, in which case I may not have it posted online. It is also possible that what you are seeing is artwork so old that I’ve since cleaned it out of my very full tumblr. But I haven’t done a cleaning like that in a long time so this is pretty unlikely. But yes, this tumblr and my twitter are the best places to find all of my work. I try to keep things all in one place because I want them easily found.
Now, lemme sidetrack.
When people repost work that I’ve been paid to do, it doesn’t bug me much. I’ve been paid for it and I consider that artwork to be out there- not just mine. I don’t mind (well I mind, but I’m resigned) when people repost these things as long as they credit me (and a link back to me would be best!) The bad part about this is that I don’t get to see how popular the images are. I don’t know what people like. When things are reposted, I don’t get to see the audience’s reaction. If it gets barely any notes on my own blog, I assume it was received badly and I won’t draw it again, or much. I’ll move on and draw things that I perceive people are more interested in seeing. So keep that in mind, people, when you repost my work.
Every once and awhile I get a message like this and it’s pretty depressing. People say things like “I finally found you! I’ve seen your art all over and only just now found out who you are!”. It’s sad. It means people throw my art all around and never credit me. I want people to find me, I want to share my work with you. It delights me! Please help people find me by crediting me and linking back to my original post!!
