Hey guys.

I'm sure most of you have been asked this before (or something similar):

"Aren't you afraid someone is going to steal your ideas, posting them on the internet like this?"

So what is your take?

I like sharing my stuff with people. I love interacting with you guys, getting feedback on my stuff. I could sit in my room and draw these comics and never show them to people, but I feel like a big part of art is sharing it with the world. Now, that's just one person's opinion, understand. I just can't see hiding all my stuff away in constant fear that someone is going to steal my ideas. I know it's a huge risk, but life's full  of risks. I have been doing this for years, and posting on the internet for at least 11 of those years, without any major problems. The extent of my problems would be something like a person using one of my comics on their site without permission. When that happens, I just ask them to kindly post something giving credit for the piece. I don't ask them to take it down, and everyone that I have dealt with on this issue has been cooperative so far. I know you can't catch every single person that does this. Again, a risk I choose to take.

I'd like to think that my work is recognizable enough that people would be able to tell if someone ripped me off or flat out copied my picture (the latter did happen, it was just a kid that posted it on Facebook, I didn't get my knickers in a twist about that. And in that case it was a friend of mine who spotted it and alerted me to it). So there you go. It was recognized as my style.

I know many of you have thoughts about this, some of you probably have official copyrights, even. Just thought I'd get your take. Obviously a lot of you don't seem to worry about this much, or you wouldn't be posting your work on here.

I'd also like to think that our archives of work being on here with dates would provide sufficient proof that it's our work, at least to some extent. It also says "copyright (c) (year)(artist's handle)" on our submissions. And DA's copyright policy states what that really means here: about.deviantart.com/policy/co…

Holiday Doctor p. 72 by hankinstein
Holiday Doctor p. 72
I AIN'T GOIN' TO NO SHTINKIN' BALL----wait...NEVER MIND!

Does this mean Irene will dress up? And dance? :paranoid:

Oh lordie, I hope there isn't free beer. Spink'll crash that party for sure. If Spencer in his "clever host disguise" doesn't first...

Holiday Doctor p. 71 by hankinstein
Holiday Doctor p. 71
Being a Dead fan, I usually have to insert some kind of reference to them in my comics.

And the ship...whoa, boy. With a name like that there's sure to be "trouble ahead."

Speck Supah Stahhhh by hankinstein
Speck Supah Stahhhh
Just thought I's share a photo of one of my best (and most tolerant friends) :lol:  ever.

This is my mutt, Speck (short for Speck-tacularrrrr), who is a dachshund/terrier cross. I adopted him from a shelter when he was 2. He's now 14. He's half blind now and deaf, but still runs and plays like a puppy. He doesn't act 14 at all.

Anyhow, here he is. He's a great little guy and loves everyone (hence he would make a lousy guard dog). =[p

I have kicked around bringing her into my Compozerz comic, actually. Not sure when or even if, but at any rate, I will probably be drawing her again. :)

You know that is some  great artwork you got there if you decided to publish your stories in newspaper ,make a graphic novel,a childrens comic or publish your strips in gocomics you can be successful and earn fame  by the way if you work in archie comics will redesign the characters in your style like you did to the compozers.

I know I have suggested this to you before, but just in case you should forget, I have been going through your awesome comics again & I must admit, I wish some day we get to see a book of the "Compozerz Comics" & a book of the "Holiday Doctor", because of how much your amazing artwork inspires me. Keep up the great work my friend.
