Default Hello friends, friendly neighborhood illusteelerator needs help!

Would any of you happen to be a lawyer ? This trademark/parody stuff is so confusing...

Yeah I just need to make sure that I'm covered legally. After seeing what Mad Magazine, The Onion, SNL, Family Guy, and South Park do I don't see how I could be but I just want to make sure.

I'm not a lawyer, but I am an artist, so I've read up on a few incidents concerning art.

You could potentially run into a few issues if you're imitating the art style, and using the name "Garbage Pail Kids" of that is trademarked. However, since you're not using real names or logos, you should be okay. Likeness could be a tricky issue though.

Definitely verify with a lawyer, but I do know a lot of art is protected as long as it's original and not defamatory of a real person.
