I sort of forgot you existed for a while, google+. Sorry! A couple weeks ago I posted a big "end of 2011, start of 2012" write up on my blog. Take a peek!

Earlier on twitter I wrote: Illustrators! Lets talk about watermarks. Do you put any sort of watermark or copyright text on the images on your website?

It got an interesting conversation going and I'd love to hear what my Google+ followers have to say.

Just to clarify, I'm not just talking about signing your work (I think most people do that?). I mean more like a little "© Your Name" or a url that you'd stick in digitally before sharing on the web.

My website adds the url and the copyright onto the image when I upload it and it gets resized, but since I wrote the software my site runs on, it wasn't too hard to add that on. I did it mainly so if people share it the attribution goes with the image, as I haven't had anybody trying to usurp authorship or copyright, to my knowledge anyway.

For the images I blog though, since I'm using my phone to take the images they're not that great anyway.

With most india inks you can pretty safely paint over your lines without ruining them. I've typically used Winsor & Newton india ink but recently switched to Speedball. And yeah, I always use cold press watercolor paper. I could see even india inks maybe smearing on paper that isn't meant to take water.
