Copyrights


All pictures and drawings on this website remain copyright at all times.
However, if you want to use one (or more) of them, I only have a few limitations. One of them is that you’ll need my written permission. Just send me an e-mail telling me which illustration(s) you want to use and I can send you a high-quality large format scan. See contact information.
Some permission requests can be granted free of charge, but permission for commercial use carry a fee, and permission has to be obtained on a case by case basis.

If you require illustrations for an educational project, personal or non-profit website, we can provide you with standard size images in exchange for a copyright notice, i.e, “drawing courtesy FlowersofChania.com” AND a link back to our site.
