If I had a plan for all this, the thread, and what ever I'm doing here, I'd have been well advised to look over all the other posts you've all proffered, to see ya'lls characteristics. I didn't though, and obviousy I've been a bit defensive, who wouldn't be? I do not plan to do any commercial activity with the linkey fidget whatsoever. I do want the design out there for people to use as they see fit.
My motive is transparency, to show you what happened from my side. I've just shared what it's been like. The comic was drawn over a dinner by an artist in Arizona, for no more than a set of fidgets, and people seemed to have liked it while I made it available. I might have preferred a different character image, but it's the way he did it.
At no time do I plan on turning this into a sales operation, although I may make some video tutorials... even those will be without ad's... and will not lead to any sales of products by me whatsoever. I will have a site people can willingly donate to, and I'll have some perks for those who care to support my work. I won't expect any of you (who have been so KIND) to be there.
Basically it's a "maker" kind of thing, and that community has a far different opinion of my work than the few of you that have piled on. Fair enough.
That other site is a guy in Hollywood, he's doing what he does. I'd have collaborated with him had he been responsive, but he was not. I don't get legal about it because it's just not a big deal for me.
You can't steal a gift, and in a way thats all it is.
