So Long As you include a credit to me for my work, a link back to the original work, and maybe a thank you. That last part isn’t necessary, but it’s nice.
Now, for some philosophy and explanation.
This blog and its works are completely open to anyone to use and remix because that’s what art is. Art is an environment we all live in, a system of turning experiences into stories through words, pictures, videos, sound, and games.
However, I am disabled and I’m neurologically atypical. My creative work is all I have left to make a reasonable living. For that reason, I need your help as fellow artists and fans of art to make sure that proper attribution happens and those who want to support me have the opportunity to do so. And then it doesn’t matter how little you can give if there are thousands and thousands of people who give a little. If those people can be found, it takes the pressure off of all of us. Me, most of all. And that lets us all create more art.
