“It’s time once again…”
Tags: Art Thieves, Mark Maddox, Steve Jencks
Over the last few years there’s been a noticeable movement by fandom and convention owners to shut down rip-off artists and thieves who are lining their pockets by making copies of the work of real artists and selling them as their own work. We’ve seen guys like Rob Granito, Joseph Bayer, Matt Walker, and others confronted at and even removed and banned from conventions for selling other people’s art as their own under the argument that they’ve “interpreted” the original artwork to a degree that they can claim a level of fair use and call it their own.
Many fans have rightly seen this as total bunk and many conventions are rightly removing them from their premises. Thing is, they’re not even the worst offenders out there right now, and that’s where all of you come in.
Embrace, Promote, and Defend What You Love. Support Your Friends’ Works and Others. It Can Pay DividendsPosted: September 29, 2016 in Conventions, Dragon Con, Family, Life, Needless Things, The Blog
Support what you love. Promote what you love. Those seem like pretty basic concepts. They also seem like easy things to do. But if you spend any time at all on social media you’ll see that a lot of people use their time “socializing” by doing things other than this. As a matter of fact, a lot of people- and I am guilty of this myself from time to time when it comes to the realm of politics –seem to spend as much time or more essentially promoting the examples of what they don’t like than they do promoting things they like. That really is something a lot of people should work on changing.

Everyone has their two great tastes that taste great together moments. Well, we’ll all be getting to enjoy one of those moments this coming Labor Day weekend in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. This particular version of rich chocolate plunging into creamy peanut butter is going to be in the form of the Grue Crew of Horror News Radio/Decades of Horror descending upon Dragon Con 2016 and landing in the Dragon Con Horror Track as panelists.
