Hey folks! Long post, but I felt like I should write this to clarify things to people who might stop by with some questions regarding this situation.
First of all: sorry about the trouble I might’ve caused you by sending a note to the admins to please remove my art from Tumblr (that is not posted by me).
*edit* I only now found out that such notice can lead to a ban and that most definitely is not what I would want to happen to anyone here! I wonder if I contacted the right people in Tumblr or if some other course of action would’ve been more suitable for the situation.
As much as I really, really appreciate the fact that a lot of people like my art, I’ve just never gotten used to my pieces being re-uploaded to places by other people. It’s a personal thing and my original art is very personal to me. Also some of the art posted to tumblr was collaborations that I’ve done with other people, so for those pieces I can’t even give permission for anyone to post them since they’re not fully my art.
So just to clarify: I’m not upset at anyone, and I do understand the people who feel like I’m doing a foolish thing here. I mean yeah, the Internet is always the Internet and the people using it cannot be controlled… which honestly makes me hesitate about uploading new pieces to the net at this point. I’ve realized just how little say I have in what is uploaded where. :(
It’s such an awful and inconvenient dilemma.
I hope you’re all ok with this, and I hope you’ll forgive me if you feel upset right now; if you want to talk about this more don’t hesitate to contact me! Thanks! :)
