Image Use

All images and graphics on this site and my affiliate galleries are copyright to me, Rachel Anderson, and are protected under international copyright law. To further protect my rights as the copyright holder, all of my artwork has been registered with the US Copyright Office. My artwork is not to be copied, imitated, printed, reproduced, or re-distributed without my written permission. You are welcome to contact me for licensing permission if you are interested in using my artwork for profit.

This page contains my current Image Use Policy. My official website is the only place where you will find an accurate and up-to-date version. This policy may change at any time without notice.

If after reading this page you are still unsure of the answer to your question, feel free to contact me.

Tubes, tags, stationary, or web sets

My artwork is exclusively licensed for tubes through Creative Design Outlet (C.D.O.).  C.D.O. offers packages of my artwork for a small one time fee for use in personal Non-Profit graphics projects.  They also have a forum where you can show off your creations. You can read more about their terms (which all use is subject to) here, and you can purchase my packs here. Use of my artwork for tubes, tags, or alterations of any kind without a C.D.O. license is strictly prohibited. Please feel free to contact them if you have any questions about their services, or would like to report a violation.

General Web Display

I love it when people like my art enough to share it online. All that I ask is that you leave the images in their original state (no cropping, editing, etc.), your use is non-profit, and that you credit me as the artist (example "Artwork by Rachel Anderson") and include a link back to my website Yes, you can share on your personal blog, pinterest, facebook, etc.  On Instagram, because links are not clickable, please link to my instagram @twosilverstars and use #rachelandersonart. If you are still unsure if your use is ok, just ask. So, to be clear:
  • No alterations (except proportional resizing)
  • Non-profit use only
  • Credit and link to my site

Please Note: I do not allow my art to be posted at image sharing sites such as Photobucket or Flickr.  Many of these sites violate my terms of use, and many have policies that grossly violate my legal copyright.

Additionally, the graphics that make up this website (banners, dividers, background wallpaper, etc.) were created by me for this site only. They are not to be reposted anywhere else.

Use on Products & Reproduction Rights

If you would like to use my artwork for commercial "for profit" purposes please feel free to contact me and we can discuss licensing options and terms. I reserve the right to accept or decline any licensing request at my sole discretion. You may NOT reproduce or use my art in any way, for any reason, without first obtaining a signed contract from me.

For Use as a Tattoo

Tattoos based on my artwork are allowed for individuals, but tattoo artists are not allowed to commercially offer the designs without obtaining a signed licensing agreement from me.  I do have a few guidelines for anyone wishing to get a tattoo of my art:
  • PLEASE go to a reputable tattoo artist! Check out their portfolio, make sure they specialize in realistic or semi-realistic work.
  • PLEASE purchase a print of the artwork so that your tattoo artist has a high quality reproduction to work from. This is not a requirement, but I am sure you want your tattoo to look good since it will be a permanent part of you for the rest of your life. The best way to ensure this is to find a good tattooist, and provide them with a good reference to work from.
  • PLEASE send me a photo of your finished tattoo! I would love to see it and maybe even share it with my other fans (with your permission of course).

Reporting Illegal Use

Copyright infringement of my work is treated very seriously. If you feel that you have seen my artwork being used in a way that does not follow my Terms of Use, and does not appear to be a legally licensed product, please contact me me with details of the infringement including any url's or other pertinent information. I am often notified by fans of my work about illegal usage, and I appreciate everyone who takes the time to contact me so that I can handle each case appropriately.
