I designed this card for Andrews McMeel publishing a number of years ago, and I was exited to see Liquid Sky Arts found it at her local Target store! WOW!
Now, a few years back my friend found one in Ottawa, as a Valentines card. This was a breach of my contract as it was comissioned as a birthday card only and I called them on it, got a settlement and now they own the image forever and ever. This sort of buy out is really discouraged for illustrators, and I will never see a penny in royalties. The nice lump sum was hard to say no to at the time. They did honor the one thing I requested - on the back it says "Tania Howells Illustration", thank goodness. Anyway, that said, if you see it, buy it anyway! I had no idea it was there and I have no idea where else this little guy may be lurking, but I am proud to say you can find my work in Target! The mecca of fun cheap stuff that all Canadians rush to the border to get to. One of my dreams is to liscence my work for use on crap you can buy at Target - sheets, wrapping paper, anything! My other dream is to find an ethical contract where I get fair royalties and am paid what I deserve.
