:bulletblack: send me a note or leave a comment on this page with a link to your creation, I'd really like to see what you make with it

:bulletblack: you can use it to create other textures IF you credit and IF you make the texture freely availabe to other Deviants

:bulletblack: be creative with it

:bulletblack: prints are fine if you used it for any of your creations - be it on DA, Redbubble or anywhere else, just be sure to give credit and a link back to this account anywhere you use it.

Brush Sets

:bulletblack: Use them in paintings, photo manipulations for your portfolio.

:bulletblack: Non-commercial use only unless you bought a license (see below). You can however print your creation for your personal use (or for a present) or create prints on DA or Redbubble for people to buy. You cannot use them to create a book or CD cover or re-sell the brush set.

:bulletblack:For commercial use, send me a note/bmail (RB) to find out about payment details - $5 per brush set or $25 for 6 brush sets. Payment is by PayPal and you will receive a license and the occasional freebie (like free stock or a free brushset ahead of me posting it on DA).

:bulletblack: Feel free to create backgrounds with them BUT ONLY if those backgrounds are then free to use for others.

:bulletblack: If you download them, fav them and link from your creation.

:bulletblack: Send me a note to let me know. I'd love to see what you did.

:bulletblack: Play and have fun with them.


:bulletblack: Re-distribute them - if you like them, fav them or link to them, or contact me if you want to display them in a collection.

:bulletblack: Do not sell them or claim them as your own.

If you're not sure, send me a note/bmail, I am usually quick to reply.

The evil flying monkeys will get any of you that do not obey these rules.

What is wrong with sunflowers?

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 19, 2009, 10:05 AM

When I showed my latest photo collage to my partner, he asked me, ‘What’s wrong with sunflowers?’

I replied, ‘Van Gogh did them.’

However, that’s only a snappy answer, when what I should have said is, ‘I don’t feel sunflowers’.

In real, everyday life I am a fairly cheerful person, however, that is partly because I live out my ‘darker’ emotions in my art. For me art has always been the medium I use to communicate with myself and resolve any issues I have – from feeling alone and misunderstood to just feeling plain sad, from understanding how I feel about something happening in my life to dealing with the residues of my decisions, it’s all in my art.

So, no sunflowers for me… :-)
