Below is an insight on my practices regarding the subject of copywritten artwork.
- First of all, I don't hold licenses to digitize licensed characters, logos, or trademarked items so, I’m unable to digitize them. Sorry!
- Any design that I digitize is either purchased, licensed clipart or my own hand drawn designs.
- Often times I will "draw" in digitized format so I may not actually sketch an image before I begin. In any case, I can assure you, it is all done legally and ethically.
- I maintain friendships with several talented digitizers and fully support them---heck, I even make purchases from them on occasion, however, I purposefully do not "Like" or visit their, or any other digitizer's, Facebook pages or websites (unless I am making a purchase) so as not to be influenced by their creations.
I strive hard to offer unique and original products that the market is not already saturated with. At the end of the day, my goal is to run a business that I can feel good about where I can say that not only did I create something unique from my own inspiration, but in turn, your creations will also be original. That is a reward in and of itself!
