    recently I dropped in your website and saw a graphik named “twitter riots”. Soon I will publish an article about the importance of modern communication technology. Your graphik would be a perfect addition to my article. It will be published in the German magazine “freiraum”, a magazine for the members of the association of the scholarship students of a liberal political foundation in Germany (Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung). The magazine is only taken in by the members and is not free for sale. The authors of the articles have to acquire all rights of used pictures on their own.
    Now I wanted to ask you, whether you allow me the reprint of your graphik “twitter riots”. Please tell me whether I have to pay a charge for it.
    Thank you for your help in advance!

  2. Hi,

  7. Hi, I am writing an article for a Dutch journal on China (in fact the only Dutch language journal on China). It is for a broad group of readers and I am writing about US-China relationships. I love your cartoon “Free the Yuan”, it may fit in my line of argument. After the article is published I am considering to translate it to English and post on my blog (I would then also be able to link to your page in that blog).
    Anyway, I hope you give me permission to use it. Furthermore, love the cartoons and the access you provide. Thanks!

  9. Hi,
    I am in the process of writing a blog about the changes in political advertising and how it will effect the up coming elections. The blog will focus on how data, and how social interaction will continue to drive voters, not mass media. I would love to be able to use your “Lapel Pinheads” cartoon. I feel this cartoon perfectly illustrates the noise and confusion that comes with political advertising. I would be more then happy to give you credit in the post and will promote your site across the networks my company is connected to. Looking forward to hearing from you.
