Temporarily Faceless

**The following rant is based on recent false and totally unfair claims made by an anonymous person regarding my artwork on Facebook, which subsequently resulted in said Facebook account being disabled.  Reader discretion is advised.

Apparently someone had an issue with some of the artwork I've posted on my Facebook account, and so... without checking the claims for validity, giving me fair warning, or any notification at all, they have disabled my account.  I only found out when I tried to log on.  Yeah... rude.  So... I am in the process of disputing this, and hope to have it back up asap.

*heavy sigh*

It seems that if someone/anyone makes a claim that artwork is obscene or offensive... which violates the 'Rules & Standards' of Facebook, it gets the chopping block without question and apparently, without even investigating the claim.  I would laugh at all this if I wasn't so frustrated and pissed off with them.  It doesn't seem right that any person could make such a claim as this, without Facebook at least first checking for themselves, but that's the way it is, I s'pose.  Anyone who has seen my work knows that this claim is complete bogus.  I just hope this headache will be resolved quickly.  Until then...  you can still follow my art posts here.

Sorry 'bout this.

 Here's my finished painting for the Frazetta Tribute Exhibition being held at Gallery Provocateur scheduled for March in Chicago, IL.  Now I shall commence with the nail-biting wait to find out from a jury of awesome people in the world of fantasy art (of which I very much wish to be a part of) to see if I'm in.  Did I mention they are AWESOME?  hehehe

Simon Bisley, Master Artist
Paul Hellard, Editor CG Society & Assistant Editor Ballistic Publishing
