Postings and Intellectual Property

Or maybe I should say Artistic Property! In the past when I had a book on the go, I posted many illustrations as the book progressed. Although I have a gorgeous book very well on the way, I have avoided posting illustrations because of what the statistics on my website show. The stats show that my site is visited very frequently from a certain country – more visits from this country than all other countries put together! This country does not seem to respect intellectual property, as I have discovered that other artists have had their work stolen and flogged on the net without reference or respect. There’s not much I can do about what is already posted, but at this time I am keeping a lid on more pics. So instead I am resorting to writing about what is behind my impulse to write these books. More soon.
