thanks, Linda - I am amazed that there just aren't any watermarks on all 
that artwork on Behance. I added a copyright notice on one of my pieces, 
as I don't own it (I have permission to use the art for my promotion).

It has bothered me enough to not post anything else, and I am 
considering adding watermarks anyway. Maybe I'll start a trend!
