Inspiration: Homage or Theft?
Inspiration is an important part of developing your own artistic voice. We can’t help but be influenced by those we admire. How does one develop a distinctive style and when does homage go too far?

Editional Printing
It’s always been arguable, whether you buy art because you love it or because it’s a good investment. Decreased printing costs and a plethora of conventions have created an expanded market for prints. Are artists who sell open editions shooting themselves in the foot? Is it a better strategy to issue prints in limited editions only?
Vandy Hall, Durlyn Alexander, Mark  Roland, John R. Gray III

Is It an Original?
Can a digitally created art piece be an original? How do you assess value to a piece that has the potential to be cloned indefinitely? Should all editions be limited? When do you retire a print?
Mark  Roland, Rob Carlos, Lexlothor LEXY, Vandy Hall
