The Artist and the Dictator from the web site of artist Jonathan Earl Bowser.

I really don't blame this guy for saying he was "perversely flattered and simply appalled" by the reproduction of his work.

Interesting but did you notice in his first paragraph,
quote:
In the event that the New York Times removes this story from their accessible archives, I have placed a copy of the story here.)

I certainly understand his indignation at havin his work used but has he not inadvertently done the exact same thing in copying and publishing on the web the printed works of the NY Times?

Funny, the mistakes we can make when we don't thoroughly think through the consequences of our actions.

Interesting. It's a shame there is no legal or financial recourse internationally for such thefts. I would personally be outraged if something I had created was stolen and used in such a manner.

Actually, I did notice that and wondered if it was ok for him to do so. And yes Midnitesun, if that was MY work used in that way he's have to worry about me coming after him, and forget about Bush! lol
