I'd like to share this with credit and links back here on a facebook page, but certainly don't want to violate any artist rights.  This is the page I'd like to share it on: www.facebook.com/TheTomatoAnth…
Purely as an inspiration piece.

Is that ok?

Sincerely appreciate your advanced request and having looked at your page I understand the excellent context, but sadly I must decline. No reflection on you or your request but this artwork has been reproduced so much without my permission I am more than a little bruised by it (understatement) and so am not allowing any further distribution until I have issued additional cease and desist orders on those who did not ask but have violated my copyright regardless. As an aside, you might be interested in my Journal entry regarding my suggestions for a collaborative approach to reducing art theft. I would appreciate any comments you  might like to make on it. Meantime, my apologies for saying no - some folks always spoil it for the rest of us - and do hope you understand. Nonetheless, the artwork can be :+fav:'d from within DA. Thanks again for asking.

"Doctor, we're losing him!"

"Quick, nurse, get the ketchup!!"

*nurse comes back with mustard*

"Mustard?! Are you MAD, woman?!"

"But doctor...it's all we have."

*Will they find ketchup in time? Will Mr. Tomato survive?! All will be answered on the next episode of, "As The Tomato Turns"...*

There's probably symbolism in there that I'm not picking up on due to my lack of analytical ability.... But all I can say is that it's cute and funny and sad all at the same time.

great job. Great concept and execution. As for the signature I'm sorry to say it's easy to remove. How about placing it somewhere on the actual picture or selecting apply DA watermark to full view image.
I've been through a lot to stop people using two images of mine that ended up on many sites so I know from experience it's better to prevent than combat art theft. Rant over ^^; Hope this helps. Again, great concept!

Thanks for taking the time to comment and I'm pleased you like the creation.

I understand the signature will never discourage art theft but I have a problem with any artwork with a huge watermark all over it. I also have spent weeks tracking down those who have chosen to steal my artwork. My success rate has been very high except for those sites that use foreign languages. (I am unilingual). I have previously suggested all DA users pool together their 'language skills' to help each other write standard copyright infringement letters and Cease and Desist orders and in every language, so that all DA users have an available resource.
This idea has been well received but nobody has been able to implement it.

It occurs to me while writing this that I will put together a journal about Art Theft. Perhaps if we had a 'We fight Stolen Artwork in ALL languages' stamp, it could identify users that would be prepared to translate letters and C+D orders into their own native tongues - available to others by request at no charge.

If I did this, would you have any language skills to help? See what you've started!! :)
