Please Note!

Although I post my art and sketches for all to see on the internet, this does not mean they are free for all to use!

If you want to use my art for something like a personal project or an organization or whatnot, PLEASE please ask me first!
My email is here: emmybindi AT yahoo DOT com
I'm usually happy to lend art to nonprofit organizations and things of that nature, so don't be shy shooting me an email!

If you want to eyeball/reference my art for personal use, I am fine with this as long as you link back to me and explain that you used something of mine as reference.

Under no circumstances do I allow anyone to trace/copy/edit/use my images for personal profit or gain without my explicit permission. If I find out someone is doing this without my permission, I will take legal action if necessary!
This means no teeshirts, no cafepress stores, no mugs, no products whatsoever PLEASE.

For every bajillion wonderful fans I have, theres always a couple stinkers who have no problem abusing the things I post. Don't be a stinker! :)

Thanks for reading

I'm sorry that you've fallen victim to those who disrespect art and artists. I hope this problem is solved quickly and without much trouble for you.

that sucks....i hear of my friend showed me their new background image on their cell phone yesterday and it just so happened to be a graphic i made 3 years ago. when i asked where she got it she said it was on one of those phone wallpaper websites....I reported a bunch of them...i'll keep a look out for your stuff out there as well! Your art is really really inspiring and beautiful....i'd hate to see it being misused...:(

I know it sucks that people steal art and stuff, but I see it as a compliment. People are so impressed by your work that they are willing to steal it and claim it as their own. Don't get me wrong, I hate them as much as you for doing such a thing, but I always stress to find the light in all things. This is how I see it. :)

The only time I "steal" peoples art is if I'm doing something for myself such as coloring line art for fun or using the pictures to decorate my binders and what not. Even then if people ask me if I drew it I say "no a friend of mine did." I can't do shading and all that stuff so I just do basic coloring, nothing special. So rest asured to any and all artists: I will never steal your art and claim it as my own. I respect other peoples art and I expect others to respect mine.

I Love your art so much, it's too bad there are a couple of people out there that are taking advantage of your work.

Is it okay to post your pictures in a personal blog? Provided that they are linked back to your deviant art?

I remember is primary school when people would copy you and you'd tell the teacher and they'd say "oh, it means they envy you, be flattered."
that's b/s, they're just lazy.
