Happy Easter...

This is the kind of note left, anonymously that I will sometimes get (this one was left on A Note):

talk about being full of one's self, I wouldn't worry about someone using your collages, in fact you would be lucky to have that happen

y'all are so flippin' paranoid

do you enjoy art as much while ALWAYS lookin over your shoulder?

"they are stealing from me" seems to be a common theme with you and your group

Apparently the person did not read the previous post, or receive the emails I got requesting to use my collages for resale. I think this person lacks the fine sense that I don't mind if someone turns my art into a piece of art for themselves... I DO have a problem when someone is using my work to sell to make money. I don't want to sound greedy, but this is how I feed myself. Sure, I love making art... but I like to eat as well.

Happy Easter everyone!

Mean people just suck, don't they?!

Andrew Thornton said...

Yep. They're one of the reasons why I thought about discontinuing my blog. They make it hard to want to come here and share.

Beverly Herman said...

Andrew don't let them steal your joy!
Only bullies say things like to other people. Peace be with you.
Happy Easter!

liz said...

They're probably just jealous that no one wants to use their work. Don't let them bring you down, you rock and they can't handle it.

They probably have ZERO talent so they have to HATE on others to make themselves feel better!

Happy Easter!

Clearly, this person has never worked in the field of creative intellectual property nor had the dismay of finding their idea/design stolen.
Treat the mutterings of this individual with the contempt they deserve

May the Easter Bilby bring ya lotsa chocky eggs!

It's so sad, I know it is hurtful, and even if someone is thinking that way, which is pitiful in its own way, why oh why would someone write it, let it flow out of their head and into the world outside themselves.

Tragic - the best thing is to ignore, hit the DELETE and do the mental re-wind.

Hope spring is renewal for you!

Oh dear. I hate getting stuff like that. I don't get much hate mail, and I'm grateful. I'm sorry that you had to read that. It helps, doesn't it, to put it up on the wall like this? It tends to defuse the hurt.

Happily, I love you.

Lorelei said...

My jaw just dropped as I read that. How can someone be so full of themselves to be so rude to someone like that?
I would have done the same thing, post it on my blog. Good for you.

clearly they dont get it.
I hope you can ignore it today and enjoy Easter.

I know exactly who left you this message. She has been stalking my blog as well. You may recall that this is the person who said that she wanted to copy something that I made and you came to my defense. Since then she has been a little on the bitter side (and apparently has a lot of free time on her hands to leave all these "anonymous" posts).

Janet said...

I dont know why they just dont keep their gobs shut and get on with it. I mean why even bother you. They can just do what they want and ignore the rest! They sure arent worth their salt. Hope your Holiday was a nice one Andrew. ox

Don't let this one person ruin the great postings we love to read/see. Ask any of your blog friends and I am sure they will share that they have had their share of negative postings. Why people feel they need the to post crappy things...does that make them feel better. Andrew, keep your blog and hopefully the little notes left by your fans will uplift you.

Stephanie said...

I love your collages, I have them in little frames!

The relative anonymity of the internet sure seems to give meanspirited people an open forum for letting an audience know just how big a dick she really is. It makes me sad to hear that this woman has "chosen" you to spew on.

diane hawkey said...

Hey doesn't that person know that you know some peeps in Detroit? We have your back.

stregata said...

This person has a lot of problems - starting with the fact that they need to be anonymous when they leave a remark. Not enough guts to stand up for what they write, apparently. Then they should remain silent. I would also suspect they are full of envy. How pathetic.

Nicki said...

It must a be a serious jealousy problem. Otherwise he / she would not harrass you but just stay away from your blog if she does not like reading it. Anyways I am happy to be part of "your group" and not of his / hers.

Gaea said...

I guess this anonymous person (or maybe not so anonymous according to Nancy) has been lucky enough to not have this type of theft happen to them. Or maybe they've never put their heart or soul into anything. Sad. We know how much of your heart and soul goes into your work.

On a funny note the verification word for me today is... shidic! HA!

People are chicken shit or they smell like such, not all but most:)
