I’ve seen my artwork stolen off the internet and used as samples for dozens of live caricaturists all around the world. I’ve seen it put on postage stamps from South American and former U.S.S.R. countries and sold in sets on eBay. I’ve seen it being used on many websites and being sold as prints online. I’ve even seen a caricature I did of Jesse Ventura tattooed on somebody’s shoulder. This one might top them all:
Yep… looks familiar.
The above shoe throwing extravaganzas took place near the University of Tehran and the U.S. Embassy in Iran on the 26th of December and featured as targets prints of caricatures of President Bush by myself and fellow NCN member Court Jones. You can see a whole gaggle of pictures of the scene and read about it here. There is also a news story on CNN about it here (which features a picture of Court’s poster). I guess it made some network newscasts.
According to the story, at the end the caricatures were grabbed and torn to pieces by angry people… sounds like your average day drawing caricatures at Six Flags to me.
