  1. However did I miss this when you first posted it? It sure sounds like the unofficial contracts that most unknown artists have to abide by – you do the work, pay for the materials, do the advertising, pay to show it, pay fees, pay shipping and handling and insurance, pay sales tax, license fees and whatever else they can come up with. And, if you post your work on the web, some slimy ad agency or rip-off web site can come along and take the image without your consent.
