Art Usage and Status


Art Requests: No
Art Trades: No
Commissions: Many apologies, but I am not taking commissions at this time.
Freelance Projects: I am not accepting any freelancing projects at this time. However, if you contact me, I might be able to recommend other artists to you!

Art Usage Conditions:

I'm not a huge copyright stickler for most of my artwork. You are free to use any of my art (Except for my Fuzz Academy art) in any of your personal and non-commercial uses. :heart: This includes but is not limited to: desktop wallpapers, tubes and Yahoo groups, collages, your personal website theme, your desktop theme, printing it out for personal reasons, your AIM/Twitter/whatever icon, your dA photomanip or mixed media project, etc. Just please don't put my art in things that might be offensive to the public, like porn or extreme violence or racist stuff. Otherwise, have fun! I know not everyone wants to be "improving their art" all the time and sometimes you just want to have some fun. Feel free to use and experiment to your heart's content. However, you may NOT use my art for any type of commercial reason (this includes submitting it in scholarship contests, art contests, or school assignments where you are just re-submitting my art unaltered for a grade). That's just unethical, dude.

Please do NOT use my Fuzz Academy art for any public reason, commercial or non-commercial, if it can be easily seen by others. (But you can definitely print it out and hang it in your room!)



Santa Maria la Blanca by mree
Santa Maria la Blanca
Santa María la Blanca in Toledo, Spain. What I love is that this Jewish synagogue was built by Islamic architects, and is now preserved by the Catholic Church. It feels like a beautiful demonstration of cooperation and tolerance across three major religions.
Los Angeles/SoCal folks, I have an exciting event to encourage you guys to go to. :heart:

Next Wed (June 26th) at 7pm, I will be paneling at the Grove's Barnes & Noble with Leigh Bardugo (Shadow & Bone, Siege & Storm), Mike DiMartino (Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra), and Seth Hoffman (The Walking Dead).

I'm on the floor, spazzing out like foamy-mouth guy, but don't worry, I will be okay. Possibly.

So if you're a fan of any (or all!) of us, please come out and see us! We're even running this fabulous fanart contest, where if you create a crossover fanart of all 4 of our properties, we will all sign a print of your artwork at the…

So. Next Wed, June 26th. 7pm. The Grove Barnes & Noble. Los Angeles. Come say hi! :heart:

p.s. I believe we are all signing things afterward. :)

Hi there! I just wanted to say that I love your Legend series and all of your art your so good at wat you do I'm jealous ^.^ >.< since this is like all over the internet, I was just wondering if you would be opposed to the idea of making the Legend series into movies? Oh and I had another question: I'm an aspiring little author (or trying to be) so do you have any tips for me? Thanks :D

I commented on your Vladimir Tod animated trailers years ago. :)
I know you did them for money, but I wish you would've done trailers for the last two books, even for fun.
It's too bad you're so busy. :(
Well, what's done is done, I suppose...

You surely don't read the notes you get. There must be tons of them, so no worries ^_^ I just wanted to tell you that I love your work, loved the Legend series (can't wait for the illustrated edition, coming on my b-day) and I can't wait to read the next book. Have fun writing!

Okay, so! I just finished your Legend series and can I just say... This is the best thing I have ever read! Due to others on here, I won't add in any spoilers to this comment but the ending to Champion made me cry. Literally. This has been the only book in my entire life to make me cry. 

I know now this isn't a very detailed comment but either way: congrats on making a wonderful series that has become my very favorite and the favorite of many others too :)
