Hello,

Thank you so much for responding, and for taking my message seriously. And thank you for crediting my artwork on your post. It would have been better if it had been credited when it was first posted, when most of your followers saw it. But now is better than never, so thank you. 

I really appreciate that you plan on retroactively crediting all the artists whose work you've shared, and will ensure that it happens on all new posts going forward. It's the right thing to do, and it sets an example to others in your community.

Also, thanks for offering me the mediation program! Id love to take you up on it. I already have an online account. It's under this email: marcjohns@gmail.com 

All the best,

Marc

I realize that people share each other's work all the time on Instagram. And I appreciate that you tagged me, credited me, and told your audience to go check out my work. Thank you.
But my name was removed from my drawing (either by you or by whoever you got it from), you altered my artwork by putting it on a foliage background, and you added your logo to the image. All three of these are inappropriate and disrespectful, for ALL artists, even if you do tag them. Adding your logo makes it look like YOU own the image, that it is YOUR creation. If someone shares what you posted, now your logo is attached to my work.
You can repost other artists' creations, but can't alter the image, add a filter, crop out a signature, or any other alteration. It's disrespectful to the artist. Leave the work as is & credit the artist, or use your own creations. Otherwise you'll run into more trouble from other artists.
Please delete the post with my artwork on it.
Best of luck,
Marc

 



Reminder:
My live class DIY COPYRIGHT FOR ARTISTS is happening this Thursday at 10am PDT! It's my lawyer-free method for artists who want to protect their work and get paid by copyright infringers.
.
If you worry about getting your art ripped off online, this class is for you. I'll be going into my own experiences with dealing with people using and selling my art, and how I've managed to stop them AND get paid.  And how you can do it too! Also, you can ask me any questions.
.
Find out more -- click the link in my profile --> @marcjohnsart
.
Can't make it on the 14th? No problem. Sign up anyway, and you'll have never-ending access to the recording of the class.

I've started a little series of these scribbled crows with captions. Stay tuned for some more.

My wife (@kristenjohnsart) was going through some junk on my desk, and came across little sketches of these crows with accompanying words, and said "You should make these into drawings. I like them. They're very 'you'". So I did.

Working toward a yes.
I feel like these speech bubbles hold some of the words that slowly guide me to a 'yes', to making a decision on something. I am horrible at making decisions, and the fellows in this painting represent a rare moment when the voices in my head have reached consensus.

This one is acrylic on illustration board, 8 x 10 inches.

A HAPPY ENDING:
I am pleased to announce that all is well with Jelly Mallow. They have paid me for all the products they sold with my artwork (artwork they had originally used without my permission, which came to my attention thanks to an IG post from Drew Barrymore). And we are going to make more clothing in the future!
The company (@jellymallow_ms) reached out to me, and wanted to make things right. We exchanged many many emails back and forth, and their responsiveness, transparency and willingness to fix things was very much appreciated. And thanks to this willingness, we have decided to work together, with a proper licensing agreement. My work will appear on current and future collections (legitimately!).
This may seem a bit unusual, considering what had happened. But a level of trust has been established, they make really nice clothing with a very fresh approach, and I don't have any current licensing arrangements in Korea, so why not? 
I think it's important to celebrate the people and companies that want to make things right. These events don't always have a happy ending, but when they do, we need to shine some light on a good story.

I LOVE making these. My hope is that it makes it easy to get a piece of original art into lots and lots of hands, maybe even your hands. I really just want owning original art to be accessible and fun.
