Blame For MH17 by 1footonthedawn
Blame For MH17
I am horrified by what happened to almost 300 innocent people, many children, flying in Ukraine airspace, shot down because pro-Russian rebels, using Russian weapons, didn't bother to check on the identity of their target before shooting it down.  It is not a tragedy. Tragedy is the wrong word.  To shoot down a civilian aircraft is a deliberate and horrific war crime.  Please feel free to take this, use it, copy it, post it, rehost it, change it, correct it (did I get the Malay, Russian, and Indonesian wrong?) and feel free as well modify it, so long as you do not try to make it funny.  It is not funny at all.  This was some child's favorite cuddly toy and someone decided it was okay to hurl a missile at that child.   The world needs to tell Putin and Girkin that this is not okay and we are not going to let it pass.  We don't have to live with this kind of conduct on the part of world leaders.  

Edit: I'm hiding comments that add to my unhappiness about this, regardless of why such comments make me unhappy.  There are plenty of places where you can make excuses for the people who did this or insist on waiting for investigations (like there will be any real investigation) before coming to any conclusions. Go elsewhere if you want to argue with my position because I'm not arguing here.  I have my opinion and my conclusions.  I can revisit and revise them if I like.  Don't come on my page and flame me.  I won't bother responding. I'll just hide your comment and ignore it.

Hi! I'm sorry to ask you this, but I wanted your permission to use your image for a presentation about Autism... it's for school, I promise I'm not getting any profit with it, I just want people to be aware of autism.
Of course I'm gonna credit you!

I sent you a note.  I hope I'm not too late.  I'd be glad to see my work used that way.  I just wish I'd seen this comment much sooner.  Sincerely, Silky

So, I don't really know how digital art works (like, at all), so I don't feel qualified to offer any kind of advanced critique or anything... but... I can tell you that I think your work is stunning and thought-provoking and I love looking at it.


Thank you for creating such beauty.
