High resolution wallpapers coming soon
28 March 2007
Gary Sablan, while making a comment on X2 flight, asked why I don't share my images as wallpapers. My response was this: Gary, I used to share all my images as hi-res wallpapers for several years... and look what happened:
I started to see parts of my images, cut out, appear in other "artists" work; I've seen people earning money from my images without giving anything back; I've seen my signature replaced by somebody else's; there was even a person who claimed to be the true author of all my artwork and wanted to sue me.
These are the unfortunate side effects when you share too much. I've learned from my mistakes. Now I share just enough for everybody to see my work, but not enough to exploit it.
I know my fans enjoy and respect my work and understand the amount of effort I put into it. They show their support by buying my images as posters or prints. Some make donations. I appreciate their support deeply.
I realize that many people prefer computer wallpapers to posters or prints. I therefore started looking into how I can provide hi-resolution wallpapers for a small fee. I also expect to start a subscription service, where the subscriber will have access to my artwork in the form of hi-resolution wallpapers for a period of one year. With the exception of some of my older work, I can provide any type of resolution for any computer screen.
So, soon I will be offering a lot of visual pleasure for your desktop :)
