This was one of 12 pieces I did for a German calendar. The client never finished paying me and then won an award with it for my art and advertised themselves with it. :(

MODELS: (withheld)
PLATFORM: PC and Mac
TOOLS: Two Wacom tablets (Intuos 3 and Cintiq 21UX)
PROGRAM: Adobe Illustrator
EFFECTS: I don't use any 'effects', but there are simple strokes and Brush strokes and fills. A lot of Pathfinder work as well on this entire series.

Well that was a dick move of them to make... is there any way to discredit them?

They're one of the largest ad agencies in Berlin and their client was a very large manufacturer - so there's really nothing I can do.

Thanks for the love.

Actually now that I think about it, You actually could. if you had the original line art work and drafts, you can speak to a lawyer about it.

International copyright law. My lawyer says it's a lost cause.

Thanks. My lawyer actually was a copyright lawyer in Berlin for years (freak coincidence). Oh well... I still own the US rights. Just need to find someone who will print them.

that's pretty heartbreaking regarding your client. i'm very sorry to hear that. :[ this is very pretty.

Thanks. But they're only in Germany so I still hold the copyright here. Legally, I still hold the copyright there too - but there's no way I can enforce it. X|

Well... That isn't too terrible at least. But it still sucks. Your artwork is amazing and only you should be accredited it.
