what? why?

Are you speaking to me or Bobby?

You. I'm genuinely not sure what the issue is.  I mean my son made a picture of a scene from nightvale radio and didn't ask permission to do so. Although I doubt they would care. So if the quality of the work is the difference between the two, I'm guessing your objection it's a compliment to the quality of Bobby's work.  Aside from that I just fail to see the problem.

Bobby's graphic seemed like it was the cover for the book.

In fact, it is not. Bobby is seemingly making an unsolicited and unauthorized advertisement. It's not about the quality. It's about the representation. I don't know what nightvale radio is, but since it is well known what Chasing Eris is here, any post that seems to represent it will have an air of representing it. Especially if it looks like a book cover.

I redirect you to the album analogy.

I'm about to release an album. Someone posts a pic that looks like an album cover. I'm not around to say, "this is in fact, not the album cover."

So your beef isn't about fan art itself, but the fact that it looks like an specific medium?  I think I follow now..

See, I guess I'm just familiar with Bobby's style so this didn't even occur to me.  Now i KNOW i'm the wrong person to argue this.

Yes.

If it is clear that it is fan art, then, mazel tov.

If it is not clear, then take a moment.

It was not clear that this was fan art. My assumption, by the way that it was presented, was that this was in fact the cover, and what Dingo chose. It's not, and there should have been some sort of statement to that effect.

That seems fair enough. I therefore apologize for my indiscretion.

I'm speaking from a creator's point of view. While the fan art may be flattering, it also might not be. And it is YOUR creation. Not anyone else's. Creations in support of your creation must be specified as such.

The puppy was probably Uncle BadTouch's idea.

There's no indication that Uncle BadTouch is guilty of bestiality. Let us rightfully criticize him for what he is shown to endorse.

Well, is he looking to lure in the kid, or the puppy?

Just to clarify:  This isn't an official image. I made it for fun because on the surface the project seemed pretty cool and I felt it was a fair participatory replacement to a request for an interview from Placid Dingo. I come here to find a thread which reveals there is far more backstory to this than I could ever hope to figure out.

It seemed like a cool project to me, at first, too.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

I respect Bobby's art a fuckton of a lot more than I respect Dingo's "journalism".

Entirely fair. The man is good at what he does.

However since Dingo's project is entirely Dingo's project, as he has been more than willing to imply, it would behoove Bobby to state explicitly that anything he does without Dingo's express approval to represent his project is merely fan art or derivative work. It cover's Bobby's ass and allows Dingo creative control over his work.

Fuck Dingo's creative control. I'm going to give out pictures of dongs to people with CHASING ERIS written on them just in case his work ever makes it here.

I read enough of this to know that I don't know anything about it!

Though I really liked the Cramulus interview, and have a soft spot for people who make stuff, hence:
