Question for my art-creating friends out there. What do you (or large IP-owning companies) do when you see your artwork being used on products like this...when they haven't asked your permission, or even own the character? I mean, I drew the character...but I'm not selling it on anything. That's because I don't own it! Why do these people think this is OK?

If you follow me and like what I do...what do you think...

Happy Birthday!!

Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.

May your Birthday be special in every way
and as special as you are
Nice work Michael !
