    When does it cross the line into pornography?

    I need a little cash boost, and have a plan. Going to buy myself a small (A6) Moleskin style sketch book (possibly leather bound) and fill it with traced out images from Youporn. Make it all look like it is genuinely modelled for erotica, then stick it on ebay. Actually, my plan is to just do the first half a dozen, or so as examples to put on ebay, then complete the other 30 in my spare time whilst the auction comes to an end.

    Any legalities I should be aware of? I think it should be good for close to €300, or more. I am totally serious.

    You could draw successive frames sequentially, like a grotty flickerbook.

    The novelty aspect would devalue my work.

    Yes. I am. I need the cash. Why the cynicism?

    The Kaplan Twins have alread done this. They did a series of oil paintings taken from the Kim Kardashian and the Paris Hilton sex tapes.

    I think they made a pretty penny from it. It certainly got them noticed.

    perhaps you could paint a picture of an someone nude and then tell their family you're going to display it in front of the nearest cathedral unless they purchase it and the preliminary sketches from you for a sum of, say, €300.

    i can't imagine anything going wrong with stan's tracing plan, after all who wouldn't want to buy some smut from a man like stan?

    you can't smell anything beyond your own rotting body so even if i did stick of piss you'd not be able to tell.

    I just have a vision. You are actually the sort of client I am targeting - dirty, smelly old men.

    I'm aiming more low profile for dirty old men like Pickman's.

    It feels exploitative to me, Stan.

    Taking images of women (I’m doubting you'd make pictures of men for this) and making further capital out of them.

    Regardless of whether the women were properly paid, exploited or otherwise abused in the first instance, I’m not comfortable with someone making money out of pictures that were intended for one point of interaction.

    If someone took a photo of me and it was printed in a newspaper, and then someone else made another image taken from that in order to make money without my involvement or permission, I’d be unhappy with that.

    Then draw it out of your own imagination then.

    your insults say rather more about you than they do me, particularly as every other urbanite who's met me - and that's quite a few - knows your claims are as true as all the other lies you've spewed here.

    My imagination doesn't go there. Think much more along the lines of esoteric, rather than erotic. My sexual imagination is far too sophisticated for dirty old men. I'll just copy shit off the web - they know what people want ;)

    The day you stop pouncing on any thread I start with your immature, spiteful shit will be the day I stop retaliating. You want to throw stones - expect boulders to come back. I have not lied.

    Nah. You're probably far too happy masterbating over your laptop for free.

    Get kids to do the tracing, it would give the work edge and you could function as a kind of ad hoc creche.

    Nice idea, but I think I'm sticking with the classic, commercial purity of Youporn. They seem to do OK.

    Monkies possibly? Monkey porn?

    Never work with children, or artists ;)
