Illustrating The Olympic Book of Poetry

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

I started looking at illustrating the book but am very sad that I basically can not use any of the logos or anything as it would be seen a copywrite infringement. They are being very very militant about things and to be honest I am starting to loose heart in the project. I have hundreds […]
