Well I must be doing something right!

Just thought I’d share this with my readers.

Today lol I got a C&D a Cease and Desist.

For what you might ask…well, remember the pop art piece I did of my friend Eve.

Well when I went to look at my recent comments I found this on my “about me” page:

” Dear Sir, the name arteve is copyrights by myself and at the patentamt Munich in 1999. Please sont use this name for your business because I am using this name art eve and pop art eve since the year 1998.
Sincerely eva Horstick-Schmitt germany”

I figure I’ll leave it there for posterity for awhile…it amuses me.

Anyway, apparently this person feels my descriptor of “pop art” combined with the friends name “Eve” is infringing on his/her copyright.

I’m not terribly worried since I have neither business nor art piece by that name.

However, I thought it was worth a chuckle, so I had to share.

And hey look at it this way, I’m being noticed in Munich πŸ˜›

Pop Art Eve

I want to start off by saying I love pop art.

Some of my favorite artists were part of the pop art movement. (Lichtenstein being at the top of my list.)

I think it’s the bright colors that pull me in, (in case you haven’t notice I tend to use a lot of color in my work).

That being said, tonight’s piece is another friend tribute.

I loved her new profile picture and had to swipe it.

I’ve been staring at it for probably months now trying to decide how to approach it.

I even did a version in marker (simplified colors like my yelling man) but it just didn’t turn out right.

I didn’t want to loose any of the subtleties of the picture so tonight I decided I’d do a Warhol inspired version of her.

The thing is, I couldn’t decide on which color scheme to go with. I think both suit her personality.

I guess I’ll let you decide which you like better. (Of course Eve gets the final say as to which (if either) is the better one πŸ™‚ )
