    Rik, the third option is nonsensical; sharing is depriving artists of new commissions. "Tell your friends" might help a few more artists in need instead.
    BlackMoonPrint itself seems in need of a clear direction in its wares.

    I took it as share the information about the artists with friends.
    Language of the times, maybe?!

    pre internet no doubt... when sharing stuff you had actually bought was [and still is] legit, and a way of generating new commissions by way of publicity, comic books of my youth an' all that...

    and today artists have to balance lost revenue against free promotion ...

    Rik did you design that? Looks old fashioned and not like what I am accustomed to seeing from you but I know you have the talent otherwise I think it's OK however as Acorn said "BlackMoonPrint itself' is troublesome.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    No, Larry. Can't take credit for that. I didn't design it.
    I thought it was interesting, because pre-internet, you would see stuff like that.
    It is a style of the times.

    I agree and would have been all the more pleasant, marred by the gratuitous swearing on some of the site's products, which is why I omitted its URL.

    Most of us took to the meme, Keep Calm and Carry On (at least the first hundred viewings).
    In counterpoint, my favourite Punch cartoon is of a person pondering over a crate with Dnyamite embossed on it; the next image is an explosion with caption Bnag!. In today's clime, some would "assume" there was an intended slight of those with dyslexia; swearing, for effect, is just lazy.

    the sadly now late Noel Ford [I'm pretty sure it was he] did one of an office cleaner looking into a room and seeing a waste paper basket surrounded by screwed up pieces of paper that have all missed, the sign on the door read: BAE Guided Weapons Research Department - that is funny

    he also did this:

    https://procartoonists.org/wp-conten...l-cartoon2.jpg

    equally so

    one of the intended effects of gratuitous swearing is often to unsettle/upset/offend - unless it it directed personally to someone I don't play that game, water of a duck's back, kids of whatever age will be kids - and I see a whole lot worse...
