Frequently Asked Questions
May I use your pictures for my own ends?
This is the most common question, with people asking if they can use the images for tattoos, fanzines, CD covers, web publications and so on.
Yes, you may use them freely for all of the above as long as it non-commercial or limited in scale. All I want is to have my name published along with the picture, preferably with a link to this site. And please, send me a hardcopy or link so I can see what you have made - it is very encouraging!
Do you take commissions?
No, I do not. This is strictly on a hobby basis. However, if you have an interesting idea for an image, I may become inspired, so you may still send me proposals. No guarantees whatsoever - and I cannot return any hardcopy sent to me.
What can I do to encourage you?
Send me fan mail and make comments on the pictures - I don't get enough fan mail. It is very encouraging, even if I may not have time to answer.
I am considering setting up an account at Cafepress. Please send me suggestions on which images you'd want as mouse pads, coffee mugs and similar merchandise, and what items you'd be interested in.
