Can I use your artwork and images on my website?

TD: Most of the images on this site are published works. And many of these publishing companies that I have worked with own the copyright to the artwork.

If you are interested in posting my work from the gaming field (this includes Magic) on your site, you will have to contact the appropriate companies for permission. Several of the game companies that I have done work for have their legal policies online so check out their websites for more details.

If you’d like to use a few of my pieces on your own personal website, I ask that you adhere to the following guidelines:

Personal/Non-Profit use only. If you’re using your site to make money—and this includes selling ad banner space—then that’s commercial use and that’s a no-no.

Acknowledge the copyright. Please acknowledge my authorship of the art either in the art or in text on the same page as the art.

Link back here. Put a link back to this site (http://www.diterlizzi.com/) as the source for the art.

No modification. While you can crop art as needed, please refrain from using it for a composite done in an image-editing program.

The art that I create is my only source of income and, though I am happy you are a fan of it, I would hope that your respect its use as I do. Thanks!

Never Abandon Imagination Tony DiTerlizzi: Never abandon imagination.

Imagination is a world of possibility that exists within each of us. It is what makes us uniquely human. It is our creative fingerprint that touches and influences the world around us. Imagination is essential to art and science; to innovation and prosperity. It gives us hope, calls us to action and leads to change.

Whether it’s fairies, dragons, robots or aliens, all of my children’s book characters are siblings born of my imagination – an imagination strengthened through years of encouragement from family, teachers and friends. While so many others abandoned it during their transition from childhood to adulthood, I fiercely held onto mine, hoping for a day when I could share it to inspire the next generation of dreamers. Innovators. World changers.

Imagination empowers us to envision and create a reality of what could be. We must hold it dear, foster it and never abandon it.
