Copying Art Work. When You Can, When You Can't

I ran across this video today and it fits right in with what I actually wanted to discuss! COOLNESS!

Please take a little bit of time to listen.  He says it so well!  Not everything is under Creative Commons OR Public Domain.  Public Domain is the easiest to use and deal with.  But another artist?  Well, take a listen.

What Sean describes is what I usually do.  I immerse myself in art or a style of art by many different artists and then I put my spin on it.  Now I can't even help it, I put my spin on it even if I am supposed to be copying something in a class LOL! ;)  A little rebellious side of me showing up.

I have to do it myyyyyy waaayyyyyy!  Remember that song?
