The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

Yesterday I found out my drawing of John Lennon was a Daily Deviation for Dec. 8.
It was obviously chosen because it was the 30th anniversary of his death, and not due to any attribute of my work.
I received more views for that drawing than I could imagine. A million and a half.
I don't consider that piece my best drawings, but I'll take what I can get. http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/ ... 81e381.jpg
Along with all the views came some of the less wanted attention.Like some guy
who saw my journal asking "should fraudulent artist should be exposed?"
First he was telling me to explain what I meant by fraudulent artist.
I thought I was pretty clear about that in the journal, but I explained it again, and showed
him a gif http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/9567/meganr.gif
This only seem to make the guy more belligerent. Asking whom am I to say photo manipulation isn't art.
The fact that I explained that someone claiming a photo manipulation as a traditional drawing done in graphite
was making a false claim didn't seem to make any difference to him.
He told me to "give it up". Apparently oblivious to the last line of my journal saying I wasn't going to expose anymore frauds.
I figure I would just ignore the guy, but then he started telling off the people who posted replies in that journal.
I cut him off by deleting the journal. It was up since October 31st anyway.

Re: The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

First up, congrats on the DD! You're now a member of a very elite group of excellent artists and photographers. If you want to wear a robe and a monocle and smoke a pipe all hours of the day no one will call you on it!

Second, don't let the numbskulls win! If you need someone to get into a typed slugging match with the nitwits, you know where I can be found. :D

Re: The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

A million and a half views ... I wouldn't want that kind of attention (how convenient :wink: ) .. but it's a bit different when you're an anonymous shadowy cartoon.

Re: The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

I feel like I'm hob-nobbing with a celebrity ..
I know Phan-tom ... and I was there when he first revealed this piece !!

Too bad you couldn't parlay those views into some cash .. even at a penny a view it would still be over 15 grand !
