A thin line separates starfish and divafish.

September 12, 2011

I have been amazed at the number of places my comics have popped up.  These tend to fall into three categories:

  1. Those who use images and link/credit this blog.  They include: one article about possible connections between diet soda and strokes, a slideshow for advertising and marketing types, a piece about Scottish culture, and a surprising number of blogs and tumblr pages.
  2. Those who ask for permission for use in offline purposes.  These have included some unusual things like a newsletter for a small nail exporting company or t-shirts for an ultimate frisbee team.
  3.  Those who take my drawings and sell them as their own work.  I feel a bit like a diva to complain… but seriously?!  I’m not sure which surprises me more – that some people are so quick to take credit for another person’s efforts or that my drawings can actually make a buck.

It feels a bit “diva-ish” to actually state this, but…  you are welcome to share the images on the wordpress page as long as you link or give credit when doing so.

Furthermore, if you are wishing to use these cartoons for profit – don’t.  It’s not allowed and it’s not very nice either.



  1. Fun illustration for divafish — and I like the cream of tartan soup illustration that is featured in the piece about Scottish culture. It’s great that your artwork is being shown online and offline. But it’s hugely disappointing that others are using your artwork to sell as their own. It’s completely dishonest and stealing!

    • Thank you for the kind words. It has been so much fun to see the cartoons show up in different places – very flattering!
