This is the way the world ends by MyNameIsSwann This is the way the world ends by MyNameIsSwann
...Not with a bang but a whimper."

Inspired by T.S. Eliot's poem "The Hollow Men" and also a sort of a tribute to my favorite artist Beksinski.

I hope you enjoy :)

Atmospheric but ruined by the water mark. Personally I think its a mean act. To sign your name is enough.
You are a good artist.

It was enough until people started stealing my work.

I personally dont care if my work is 'borrowed' or copied. In fact I would be flattered. I probably would be upset if I was losing money. But that is highly unlikely. I am coming at this from the point of view that everybody copies something from somebody. All you can hope for is to retain some dignity and perhaps inflict a commercial penalty if a business was foolish enough to use your raw image with out permission.
Of course its not for me to say but it is a shame that images are spoiled needlessly
How was your work stolen

I'm not talking about copying. Some of my images have been directly taken from my page and used as logos, promotional fliers, posters and album covers.
