  1. HA! Talking with a friend today about JW's and Mormon's and there's the tragedy -- they're whistling a happy tune past the cemetary.

    And Legos!

    Hi Robert. :)

  2. Hi Sonja:

    OK, Don Pardo, tell Sonja what she has won being the first commenter!

    - $5.00 off any recording that Elvis Presley made with Enrico Caruso.

    - $10 off the purchase of a $40,000 Chevy Volt.

    - An authentic stump autographed by Ergun Caner.

    Thanks for stopping by. I'll try to post more meaningful things (in addition to some of my levity) as I have time. You are an example for me for thoughtful and devotional posts.

  3. You found my lego creation! (And I found your blog while googling my name for something rather unrelated, lol.) Glad to see it getting around. :)

    Nice quotes, by the way!

  4. Heather:

    So, you're Chrishankhah! Thanks for your rendering of Ergun Mahmet. I hope I didn't violate protocol, etiquette, etc by linking to your work. It really added to the post.

    Suggestions from an actual artist on how best to present "borrowed" work and the proper way to attribute would be greatly appreciated.

  5. The deviantArt community CAN get finicky when art shows up on other sites -- MOSTLY when it shows up on sites being presented as free media (when it isn't) or worse, websites trying to sell copies of the art. That's bad. Generally, you want to contact the original artist if possible.

    Personally, I think it's kind of inevitable that if you put it on the internet, it's *going* to get around. Me, I love seeing my art being used elsewhere. (This one, I especially created with that hope. Plus, it was just funny. At one point, I had the intention of actually mailing it to James White!)

    There is, however, something some artists do called "creative commons" and especially on dA, you can see what work is free to use by what degree. It's kind of hard to explain, but worth reading up on!

    Anything I create is free to show up on blogs -- especially those promoting the gospel. =)

    Sorry for the late response. I somehow get no notifications when I respond to this kind of thing, lol.
