I've been here a while but this whole social media thing is quite new to me. I enjoy fan-art but haven't the skill to draw the images that fill my minds eye; I have researched copyrights and fair use criteria and to the best of my knowledge, My work falls in the category of "transformative in nature" Utalizing photoshop to merge and manipulate in effort to stimulate creativity and capture the essence of the characters I most admire.
These are collages, the composition is mine but I lay no claim to the base images from whence they came. It seems to me this is fair use of stock photography, series screen shots and the odd googled image when I am unable to find what I am looking for.
All base pictures have been altered significantly from their original format or combined in hopes of bringing other dimentions of the characters to light or illistrating scenes not presant in the foundation series. No copyright infringement is intended.
I do not intend to sell my work for profit or detract from the original in any way. This is purely for the enrichment of the general public more specifically the enjoyment of those who appreciate the series and characters from which my inspiration flies. I hope you enjoy what i have done.

Quote 1: Words are slippery abstractions, playthings of the minds; yet, without them, thought would be next to impossible.
Quote 2: How non-cryptic can one really be with a lively enthusiasm for semicolons?
