He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

How Do Artists Protect Their Work Online? on Symbiartic

Posted by Charley Parker at 7:44 am

Dinosaur Cartoons, by Charley Parker
Writing for Symbiartic, a blog devoted to scientific art on Scientific American that he co-authors with Kalliopi Monoyios, Glendon Mellow recently asked several science related artists to comment on the question How Do Artists Protect Their Work Online?

Mellow asked me to participate, which I did in my role as the author/artist of Dinosaur Cartoons (also here).

I chose to talk about the issue of preventing people from downloading or otherwise accessing your images online (you can’t).

    Last line is perfect Charley. Only sure way is to put them in a lock box (apologies for the Gore reference) and bury them.

    Saying it: Being a terribly slow artist, mostly because it’s a part time endeavor. I haven’t posted my work very often simply because most of my art deals with a theme or idea that I have not finished, so I keep it close to my chest so that I can “protect my idea” until I have a the time to finish it the way I want to.
    The hard part about that is I do not get feedback, I do not have a online community to throw ideas at, and for all intense and purposes I am isolated. It’s a bit of a pickle because I certainly understand the need to have feedback to help correct the things wrong I tend not to see. I’ve been in this cycle for a long time… not sure when I’ll get out of it… for now I try to not worry about being online and just focus on trying to get better at my art and develop my ideas. Lunch over – back to the day job. As always Thanks for the links/blog Charlie. Cheers, Mike
