It's that time of year on facebook again where folks use a Pokemon image as their profile picture for a month. I have yet to change mine, as I'm rocking a fabulous banana costume currently and I don't feel like giving up my holiday (Halloween) spirit just yet. Anyway...
I've gotten a lot of messages here and on facebook about Pokemon pictures I've drawn... the most common question is "can I use this?"
The short answer is no.
No you can't.
And that goes for anything in my gallery, for any purpose you want to use it.
Some artists are cool with having their art edited and used by others, but I'm not one of them. Lots of folks have lots of reasons for thinking or feeling the way they do... and for reasons I don't feel like outlining here, I don't like my pictures being used on anyone else's page/profile/gallery/etc. for any reason whatsoever. I just don't. Sorry.
It's not that I don't like you. In fact, you're awesome. Thanks for being awesome!
...but if you want your profile picture to be an umbreon this year, kindly stop asking about mine. I'm going to say no and you're going to be butthurt about it. Save us both the unpleasant conversation.
