Isaak was coloring this:
It's cute right? Me and a lot of other people thought so. I said, "Wow Isaak that's a really good drawing. I love it!" He smiled and said, "Thank you!"
Rubber bands are his thing. He puts them in almost everything he does. He's a collage artists, or a sculptor. Not really an illustrator per say. We'll see. He may loose interest in the arts all together like his big brother Mica did.
I posted his little master piece on Facebook. People thought it was cute.
Then the other day I said, "I really do like that airplane that you created."
He said, "Ya I just colored it, and added the rubber bands. I found the drawing in Grandma and Grandpa's closet."
I guess there's nothing wrong with what he did. It's no different than him coloring an image out of a coloring book. It's just that I should ask him next time, "Isaak did you create all of this?" before I claim it's my son's work.
My guess is, that it's my oldest nephew's drawing, and Isaak's coloring.
Isaak needs to sit in on one of my copyright lectures. HA HA When you think about it most works are from something inspired by, or something changed from something else. Does that even make sense?
Dale Chihuly hasn't blown his own glass for years, and his work is in tons of art galleries. He's estimated to be worth $10 million dollars. He draws what he wants, or tells glass blowers what he wants, and they create it for him. Then he decides if he wants to put his name on it.

Weird Al Yankovic has borrows from others all the time. Beat It became Eat It. He's found himself in trouble with the law a few times. He's always been let off.

If I have problems defining original works. Try explaining that to a 5 year old.
By the way I'm not bashing these artists. Sarah McLachlan was once my favorite singer.
