This post is specifically for those of you folks who are online image/graphics hobbyists - makers of tubes, signature tags, websets, members of the groups for PSP and other image/graphics groups. If you don't know what that means or what the heck I'm talking about, lol, - just ignore the rest of this entry, hehe.
So....I have good news! If you're involved with the online image hobby community, you probably are aware that for the past 8 or 9 years I've pretty much had a "No-no"/'Hands Off!" policy when it comes to tubes and tags. It has always been a struggle for me to maintain a good balance between protecting copyright/legal stuff and allowing enjoyment of my artwork for online graphics hobbyists. I've never allowed any kind of tubing, etc. of my images. Until now! I've "given in", lol, and am allowing licensed use of my images for tubes & tags with my new contract with Creative Image Licensing Management - CILM. CILM is a fabulous company that creates tubes from artists' works they have officially licensed, and they create packs of tubed art for purchase for online tag hobbyists. The tubes may be bought for a small, onetime fee, and downloaded directly from their site. They also have a very active forum that you can join and use to show off your very own creations! Once purchased, you have lifetime permission so long as you follow their terms and don't use the art for profit. This is the ONLY usage I allow of my artwork for tubes, tags, and other alterations (in the past I have never allowed such usage, so this is very new for me!). I have three packages already available (each with 12 images) and more will be added soon! Click below to see:
For ANY questions regarding usage of my images as tubes or tags, this is handled by CILM (not by me myself) - you can contact them here:

All of this is outlined in my Usage Terms on my website. My policies for general display (unaltered watermarked images, just to display on your site, MySpace, LiveJournal, etc. not for tubes/tags) has not changed and of course is still free for use, all of that info is on my Usage Terms page on my website too. My Usage Terms page is here:
Basically the only thing that has changed is that I now allow use for tubes/tags, and have the new agreement with CILM to facilitate it =)
I hope that you have fun with my artwork - enjoy!
