In the public domain

I have been having conversations around the net about the public domain and claiming copyrights over things that you did not author nor create, And it got me to thinking…I have a considerable amount of public domain books  and pictures and such on my hard drives so I was perusing one of my drives and found a copy of the new york times with the front page noting the end of the first world war…Imagery from the past can do nothing but inspire the future.  The image is below.  Hope you enjoy it..

This is about someone attempting to gain copyright over public domain images.  I have written extensively on this in different places…It is pure unadulterated bullshit.  Summertown sun has nothing that I have seen, when comparing to the originals that can or does give them copyright over any of the images I tested.  To continue the hype…you suck summertown.

As an artist, there are many things I believe one should do.  But, by far the two most import are to draw everyday as much as possible and to study something in the genre’ as well. This mans work is so fantastic.  His marker illustrations and what appear to be storyboards are worth buying by themselves.
