But I just can't. Especially not that. It's almost like a visual diary. And all my other drawings usually take so much time and effort and work, I can't just easily give them away or sell them.
I've kept paper (offline) journals for 20 years-and those to whom I've shown them say they are art (they include drawings & scrapbook kinds of stuff, too) & should be in a museum (either now or once I'm dead). I've mixed feelings (like, "yeah, cool"-and "no way !") about that notion, too.

I know I tried to help you with it, but was it me or another one of the admins (maybe Noc I thought) who had eventually succeeded in uploading the pic for your avatar? I'll check through my photobucket account just to make sure. If it's there, I'll delete it. In any case, if it is there, it would be the same size it is in your avatar and you therefore wouldn't have to worry about proving copyright because you have the original and the larger pic. Someone could come along and always make the picture smaller, but they couldn't make it larger without ruining the clarity; it would get all blurry.
Knew Noc had a part in that successful upload, but I don't know how it worked.
Hey there peoples, Sophist made thread for me with some of my drawings:viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2260
But I'd like to continue the conversation (as interest deems it) on this thread
(which you are now reading). Otherwise, to read any comments I'll have to wait for the images thread page to load-it's easier to keep up with posts here on this one.
First picture is colored pencils on black matt (sp?) board, from 1997. Second one is pen (ink) on white board, from 2007.Not criticizing, only observing
: In new thread of images, I noticed that "printable view" shows no pictures at all. Fortunately, discovered that when I "save as PDF" the (regular version of) page, I do
get the entire dimensions of each-despite them having scroll bars (only showing half the picture at a time) while in the thread.
