Lisa Frank's Xenomorph by GalenaLarkin Lisa Frank's Xenomorph by GalenaLarkin
I was out buying some Lisa Frank merchandise today and was inspired. So this is what you get: my Xenomorph from the Lisa Frank world. Because carnivorous CAN be cute and cuddly

So, my dearest one thought it would be a grand idea to order me a custom Xenomorph case for my iPhone. Unfortunately, he's a little hazy on the subject of copyright (damn internet pirates). I'm a librarian, so this cannot stand. x_x I can't on good conscience keep the case without offering tribute to the artist. If you haven't got PayPal set up, could I at least cut you a check?

Oh my goodness. I need to learn a little bit more about this. Can you please send me a PM? Thank you.

Gosh, I am so embarrassed I could fall through the floor. -_- Okay, it went a little something like this:

I broke my phone and had to get a new one, so I got a new-to-me iPhone 4. They don't really carry those cases in-store anymore, and I'd been looking around for one. My darling one went to a website (Personalization Mall, I believe) with a picture he knew I was fond of and ordered me a case. It was supposed to be a surprise, but I saw him ordering it.

"*gasp* For me? How sweet!"
"Well, I knew you liked this picture, so--" <3
"...wait. That's not Etsy."
"Nope."
"You did get permission from the artist, right?"
*click-click-send* "...um...no?"
ಠ_ಠ "Do you seriously not know the difference between copyright and public domain?!"

Being a broke-ass postgrad, he has a tendency to download things that people with money just buy (TV, music and whatnot). IDK, I guess the logic is he'll make up for it by buying those things later?? At best, that makes him a well-intentioned doofus. But there's a difference between streaming seasons of House and 'borrowing' a picture.

As previously stated, I'm a librarian, and as an avid defender of the original creator, I want to make this right. I can't undo the order (I did give him a verbal bitchslapping, though), but I would like to pay you for the use of your picture. PayPal is pretty easy to use, and they have some good people running the site, so it's safe and you get your money pretty quickly. (You can either link it to an existing bank account or use it online when you shop, like a gift card.) Or, if you prefer, I'll write you a check and mail it to you.

That's what I was thinking had happened. I'm glad you reached out to me about this. It means so much, I can't even explain. I kept thinking about it last night and started crying (happy tears!). I'm not used to my artwork getting any kind of attention, and I'm certainly not used to the idea of people wanting to actually pay for it. I've never done commissions, because I assumed that nobody even wanted it for free, so who was going to pay for it? This means so much.

I'm going to learn how to use PayPal and see how quickly I can get that set up. If it doesn't appear to be working right, then I suppose a check would be fine. Just give me a bit of time. I'm super busy right now with work. I'll be in contact.

Sure thing. People clearly love your work. There are plenty of websites where you can sell your work. My guess is that it would work on a royalties system--they print on demand and you keep a cut of everything they sell. That's my guess, anyway--that's how it works in indie publishing. Maybe it's not too different.

I'd be happy to help you find a good, artist-friendly site. (It is sort of my job, after all--helping people find stuff.)

Maybe :)  Do you know how to use the Note system here on DeviantArt? If so, let's continue the conversation there. I'd like to keep everything private. Thank you.

This design makes me so, so happy! Have you had any success selling it yet? I'd love to somehow get it on a skateboard as a 30th birthday present to myself (is thirty too old to be riding a Lisa Frank-inspired skateboard? Nah!) but only if you're on board.

Lots of people have asked about having it on a poster or t-shirt. I wish I knew more about how to do that! I don't even know how to use PayPal. I'm kind of an old fogey lol. Do you know where I can get help with all that? I should probably update this image and get it in a higher resolution so it can be more useful. I'm glad you like it though. Thank you so much!

THIS JUST IN! It is confirmed that even adding blurred colorful lines and an attempt at making it looks cute cannot destroy the scare factor that is natural to most xenomorphs (excluding horrible fanart like muscle boobed xenomorphs (yes I found that while scanning deviantart) and half woman half xenomorph "sexy" aliens). Also Half-Life 3 confirmed.
