Over the last few months, I have received a handful of email accusing me of stealing from other artists due to the fact that in the past i have had art with similar elements or vibes or whatever to another artist who may or my not have done their piece before mine. I haven't decided yet if I'm really bothered by this or not yet. One one hand, I am not, because I know I don't take from others and don't feel I have anything to proove, and things like that have been known to happen in all the worlds of art. I think I have already discussed this partucular frustration with Noren. One the other hand, I am bothered by the fact that it is seen that way by more than a few people and the way they present it to me. But i figured i'd warn you all before you found out from somewhere else . Plus, I'm having a bad day and just need to vent about something. HAHAH. i might even post a few of the mails here. It might start a healthy discusson on the topic in general and bring a few different points of view to the table.
