Copyright, Licensing & Usage
I’m happy that you are taking the time to read about my usage terms. As a full-time artist, my art is my sole source of income, and all of it is copyrighted. There are “bad apples” out there who spoil the whole bunch by ignoring this, and because of such I have had to adopt rather strict usage terms over the past several years. I know, legal stuff and licensing can be a drag, but here goes – click the individual sections below to see the specific usage terms for what you are interested in:
#1 THE IMAGE MUST REMAIN UNALTERED
No changing the pictures whatsoever. No animations, adding text, no sparkles, nothing. Sorry folks, if you want to do this, see the TUBES & TAGS section about licensing for tubes/tags. Just use the picture as shown, as I painted it, please. You can re-size it as needed for the space, but please do not change the image other than that.
#2 ONLY USE THE WATERMARKED IMAGES FROM THIS SITE
I only grant display permission of the images of my artwork as shown here on my website, www.strangeling.com, complete with the ©Jasmine Becket-Griffith watermark text on them. I know, it can be distracting or blurry, but unwatermarked image use online has led me to multiple lawsuits and other copyright issues over the past few years, so I gotta say it. No scanning in other pics or snagging them from commercial sites, etc. For free display, I only allow use of the watermarked images from this site. Sorry to be a bother!
#3 YOU MUST CREDIT ME!
You will need to credit the following: ©Jasmine Becket-Griffith and a link (clickable if possible) to http://www.strangeling.com
#4 NON-COMMERCIAL ONLY!
If you are selling something — anything at all — I do not allow free display of my artwork. If you are interested in licensing my artwork for business use, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to sell my prints or other products I create in your online or brick-and-mortar shop, please see the Wholesale FAQ tab for more information.
The next best thing to do is to bring the print, book, sticker, or other picture you have my artwork with you to the tattoo parlour and have the tattoo artist work from that. Most tattoo artists are great artists in their own right and will do a great job from the picture.
Please note that this is for PERSONAL use only.
Also – I see a lot of my paintings tattooed on people in various monthly tattoo magazines. That is very cool! If possible though, when submitting your tattoo based on my painting to a magazine, please ask them to credit me, the artist, as well. Thank you!
