Hey, may be you are a writer too and you are asking. What impact can this act of releasing my novel with a creative commons have? You may think this is very little but am telling you it is a lot. This is just the beginning for me and it might be a start for you. Now imagine if we were 10 or 50. It would begin turning heads, Right?. Just look around you again and you might notice it began long time ago. Those numbers were passed long time ago and I pity anybody who tries to stand against it.

Kim PhilipsenIn 1964 the stars were shining bright, and a handsome little devil was born. Danish artist Kim Philipsen’s greatest love is capturing the spirit, in the face of Natives. Kim moved to Spain at the age of 12 where he met many artists. He realized that he wanted to become a portrait artist. 21 years young, Kim went to the Philippines where he met master artist Rick Gonzales. Kim and Rick became great friends, and Kim studied there for 4 years drawing and painting still life, landscapes, seascapes, and so on, and so Kim learned, as they did in the old days. It was easy to travel with pen and paper, and when Kim was in need of money, he did a portrait.

Australian_AboriginalFor 15 years he went all over the World, having a good time, doing his art, and enjoying every moment. It was during these travels that Kim would happen upon the right face at the right time and deliver a stunning portrait. Today, Kim is no longer living amongst the starving artists but rather chooses to call the community of Byron Bay, on the North coast of Australia, his home. Kim has had 2 galleries in the past, but now enjoys doing his art from home or while travelling. Kim sells his work to galleries, in Australia, America, and Europe, and to private collectors.
