"Give into me" with Slash, "In the closet" with Naomi Cambel and "Who is it" - these are my favorite songs. Every day I listen to these songs of this artist, for many years Heart

I love this, and the 84 portrait! And you got the hair just right...I'm so curious about it almost killing you...

I'd love to feature both of these on my new blog which will be up soon at and is called "We Can Change the World" inspired of course by Michael and his social justice work and determination to change the world for the better. He sure did! And he still is.

I can give you credit and a link back to this page, or any other... Thanks for considering this!

I saw this picture ages ago on this site and remember it because it is so good. I was on ebay yesterday looking for a game for my son when i came accross a phone cover with this portrait on it. Did u sell this image? Did you know about this at all? I would be interested to know. I have the ebay page details if u need them.
hellbull Featured By Owner May 18, 2010
What? I never sold the picture and had no idea! I know that somebody has put the pic in T-shirts in China and is selling them without my permission, but not this. Could you give me the details?
MJJ1958-2009 Featured By Owner May 20, 2010
OMG!!! the mobile phone covers they are selling are from china too. here is the link:


I hope it works. If not here are the sellers ebay details:

Seller name: zjp1717
Item code: 150441224961

If this does not work give me an email address & I will copy & paste the whole ebay page to you. I am new to art/painting & I think this is just terrible!
hellbull Featured By Owner May 23, 2010
Thank you so much! I don't think there's much I can do, because I'm not registered in Ebay. And if I write to the seller, I know they just don't give a shit... It's terrible, you're right! :(
MJJ1958-2009 Featured By Owner May 23, 2010
Maybe you could write to ebay & inform them. You never know they might stop them selling online. Ebay do their best at trying to keep sales legal and protecting buyers & sellers.

I have put my paintings of MJ on my facebook and I am a bit worried about having them 'stolen'. I know at least on person has one of them as their profile pic, but mine are no where near as good as yours. Check them out on FB under Trina Slater. Last year was the first time i picked up a paint brush.

Anyway I feel for you. You should look into the ebay thing or even get legal advice.
