RE: Artist Models
Within the artist's capabilities, characters represented in the art may resemble the source model for each creation. Resemblence to any other persons, living or deceased, is purely coincidental.
Who we share your data with (BTW- we don't, ever)
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. We do NOT sell or disseminate mailing list* data. Although the artist welcomes sales of the artwork, this is not an e-commerce site in any fashion; there is no on-line shopping cart/checkout here. This site is published at the expense of the artist and does not rely on revenue to remain online.* Mailing lists are for new artwork or new exhibit announcements
