Question for the Mods: selling own art?
Hey Mods, I don't know if this is kosher or not, so I figured I'd ask.
A friend of mine is a gifted sculptor, he's done things for Sideshow collectibles, Marvel, Disney, among other Hollywood firms. I am having him sculpt me an Art "Chief" Rooney bust, as he is seen in the "BELIEVE" posters. My question is: Can I sell copies of it on SF since it is artwork commissioned by me? I don't think it'll violate any copyrights, since he is/was a public figure... I was also planning on donating a portion of the proceeds to Myron Cope's Allegheny Valley School charity. All I want to do is recoup the money I spent for the sculpt and materials for casting.
Ok to go or no?
