: Xaipe! I offer this as a public service message to all"Taur artists:
: I was just roaming through Elfwood,when I came upon a familiar image: Chris Sawyer's "Centaur Couple", as seen in HM #16. However, the gallery in which it appeared bore someone else's name: one "Wayne H. Hodge".
: On closer inspection, I could see that it was, in most respects, virtually identical with Sawyer's drawing; with a few transparent attempts at alteration imposed on it.
: I was quite offended at this blatant display of plagiarism; and I urge all honest "taurs to call this scoundrel to task for his crime.
: I enclose a link to the picture in question, so that you may judge the case for yourselves.
: Yours sincerely,
: Lucius Appaloosius
I think you're being awfully unfair to Mr. Hodge. If you even bothered to read his explanation of this event, you would have found that, when he posted that image, he was suffering from a very bad case of hypoglucemia. As a diabetic I can tell you that this clouds all judgement and reasoning, and I pity the day you scum were ever born. Mr. Hodge almost died, and all you can talk about is how he accidently posted a bit of art he didn't do!
