So the good news is that this blog has reached 400 followers, so thank you all! The bad news is that I have had one of my sketches ripped off by a street 'artist' in New York. My thanks to Dan Springer for the photo. Dan is an artist friend of mine from NY, he took this photo on 39th Street. The guy ripping off my Nicholson, (among other artist's works that he has casually lifted from the internet and used as though he has free right to do so), cannot be called an artist. He is a thief, and a conman. He is conning the public into thinking he can draw. If he could, surely he would use his own artwork to advertise his business?? This is a shallow practice that can be seen all over the world (I have seen it here in the UK in Leicester Square, London), but this is the first time I have seen one of my sketches being used.
I just feel sorry for the people he cons into sitting for him. :(
