No More Unauthorized Artwork
Regarding the debate of whether comic artists should continue selling unauthorized prints/sketches of characters they don't own, I think Bissette and his legal advisor are 100% correct.  So from now on, I won't be doing any sketches or commissions at shows of any character that I don't own.  Am I rolling over in fear of Marvel?  Maybe, but as it states below, they're in their legal right to come after me if there's ever a dispute.  I love to complain about the Big Two, but I can't (in good conscience) get upset at them if I'm breaking the rules myself.  Being DC exclusive, maybe I can get a waiver that allows me to sketch DC characters, so I'll keep you updated.
From Steve Bissette's FB page:
ALERT, ALL COMICS CREATORS: With permission, I'm quoting key points my dear friend and own legal advisor/contract consultant (since 1992) Jean-Marc Lofficier raised on his posts to a Yahoo forum discussing Ty Templeton's cartoon concerning the Gary

It's amazing how setting goals can make you unhappy. 
For a long time, I've always thought to myself: "I'm not quite as good, but I will be once I've met my goal." Or, " Once I've reached my goal, I'll be happy, I'll be successful." I'm sure that I am not alone in this mode of thinking and as a result we ultimately push our own happiness to the back, unless we accomplish some major milestone.
We place ridiculous stress on ourselves to lose weight, get a promotion...finishing a comic or whatever.
But I think setting goals seem useless without a system or process in place to reach them. I'm learning more that it's important to understand the difference between goals & systems. The goal is the desired end result, the system is the process, or practice that (if committed to) eventually gets you there. Focusing on practice instead of performance allows you to be present, and improve at the same time. Planning progress (Goal) vs. Making progress (System). 
Let's commit to
