From steamcrow ‘s Facebook page, something to chew on, o’ artists of artists alley.:
A quote from Mike Mignola talking about seeing unauthorized prints of his character Hellboy, at Comicpalooza:
"I don’t go up to guys at their booths but, amazingly, a lot of these guys come to me to me to show me the print. I try to be nice and patient and EXPLAIN why I don’t want them doing the print, that they don’t have the rights to the character. About half of the guys are embarrassed and say they’ll stop selling them (who knows?) but the other half just stare at me in confusion. Doing and selling prints—Especially by guys who aren’t actually working pros is SO common these days—I find so many of these guys have no idea that there’s anything wrong with it."
See the rest of the conversation, including additional comments from Mignola on Steam Crow’s original Facebook post.
