photoblog image Italian Street Painting Festival

Italian Street Painting Festival

This is by artist Antonio Mendez.

Do you remember the original "HOPE" poster by Shepard Fairey? His work caused a row and lawsuit because he based it on an A.P. photograph taken by Mannie Garcia.

The A.P. said in a statement that any use of the image requires its permission, and it is seeking credit and compensation for its use in Mr. Fairey’s works.

So I guess I could get in trouble for taking a picture of a drawing of a drawing of a picture?

Only if I make $$$$$ off it. That's the only time they really care... when there is money involved.
