:::Recending Permissions:::

I have spent the last month trying to get "redistributions" of my artwork under control... Somehow people think that if it's free to use that means they can not only use it any way they want, but redistribute it and share it at any time with anyone regardless of my terms of use... So I am forced to disable my tube links and Recend permissions for my artwork.

It breaks my heart that this has happened over and over... and I now understand why even Kenny K had to go PTU. It's sad that people take advantage of the kindness of artists and pass images around willynilly... So I'm sorry, but sometimes a few apples do spoil the whole bunch. I'm so upset and heartbroken over this. I don't want to be this kind of artist! I never wanted to be... BUT a few people have forced my hand... So I'm sorry to all those who have followed the rules and now must be punished because of other peoples' complete and utter disregard for an artist's terms of use.

I will try to upload some of these images to MPT so that they can be used again by my wonderful fans! I apologize for the inconvenience this will cause. Trust me, as a tagger myself I completely understand. But I can't get this under control any other way.

:::A Gentle Reminder:::

It has come to my attention that some of my FTU artwork is being uploaded onto various download sites. This is considered re-distributing and is very much NOT allowed. Please do not engage in or encourage this behavior by downloading from any link other than those I provide here. The only exception is my work on ATA or MPT... NONE of my PTU art should EVER be distributed by anyone OTHER than my licensing company! If you see anyone doing this please report this to MPT, myself and the site the work is uploaded to immediately. Thank you so much for understanding...

:::Artist Update:::

Sorry for the lack of information. While I am going PTU, all my previously released tubes are still FTU. I've never wanted to be one of those artists that punishes their fans by making them pay for art they allowed to be used for free. I'm an avid tagger, also, so I know how frustrating and important FTU artwork is. I only ask that you not redistribute or share them without my written permission. And perhaps *fingers crossed* your continued support in the future of my PTU art. Thank you so much again for your support! - Aiya

Fan Mail

I love it when people show me what they've done with my work. Soooo I thought I'd show a little of it off!
This first one was sent to me from Rosa. I just love it. The colors and the kit go beautifully together. Well done! The second one is from a friend of mine, Donna. Lovely work. Just love how she captured the attitude. Thank you so much ladies! Keep sending these beauties in!

:::Artist Update:::

After much debate, internally and externally, I've decided to go PTU. I appreciate all my fans and am VERY happy you all love my work and hope you will continue to support me in my artistic endeavours! - Aiya
