I've learnt something today - all artists should watermark their images!
It's weird, but because my artwork is quite left-of-centre, I haven't ever thought about it ... until I saw a cool YouTube clip of deathrock songs with my tapestry as the main image! Luckily, it's been credited now - but it really made me think about protecting all images that are online.
Then there's the problem of how to watermark - is my tapestry part of the Goth Deathrock Art Project, or is it part of Threefold Designs?
It's quite flattering that my work is seen as a good representation of the Deathrock subculture ... which is why I started this project in the first place. It's also good for woven tapestry in general, which doesn't get enough credit. Saying that, I took 6 months to weave this thing, so crediting me as the artist is VERY important!
Now to face the daunting task of slowly going through my blog and main website to watermark images - this is going to be a sloooow process!
Do any other artists reading this watermark their images?
