    Are Celebrity paintings illegal to sell?

    Hi All,

    There's been quite a few people that have asked me recently to sell them prints of my personal work.

    Most requests recently have been of a painting I did of Marie-Jose Perec
    Am I breaking any laws by not having permission from Marie-Jose Perec to do this painting? Or is it ok to sell prints without permission? I'd love to get some answers to this. Thanks in advance for everyone's help.

    Don't quote me in court, but I think as long as you are working with original material, not published photos or publicity material of the person it is legal. Otherwise we'd have damn few editorial cartoons in the papers.
