MY WORKS ARE NOT IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN
I hate to have to post about this again, but I just caught three more instances of a photo of mine being used without my permission.

None of the images in my gallery is in the public domain. I don't make stock. When I find that images of mine have been used without my permission, I go after the person through every legal means at my disposal. I don't do this to be vindictive; I do this because I firmly believe that artists should be able to make art without having to worry about the leeches of the world thinking, "Hey, that saves me some time and effort. Yoink!" I also like to have some control over how my art is to be used. I don't appreciate the fact that a photo of mine is currently being used to advertise a Chinese health product that I wouldn't endorse in a mill
