I got this message in my email inbox this afternoon:

"Hello again

May I publish these image(s) in an upcoming issue of Herd Mentality


As artist, all credit will be given, and you will be entitled to a
contributor's copy (you pay only shipping), if you'd like one.

If you can send high-resolution versions of the image(s), please do so.
Thank you for considering!


...does anyone know who this guy is, and wether this email is justifiable? has anyone else gotten an email like this? I don't think I know what to do here... I'm thinking no, but if someone else has a good feeling about this.. I don't know, because I don't.


follow up: thank you guys for helping me out; I appreciate it :)

Aatheus was the guy who set up Furbid.
He used to run a fanzine called the Centaur's gatherum newsletter.

Might wanna mark that link as Adult. >.> <.< I know it's in the filename, but I personally clicked without reading the filename, soo.. yeah. =x

Anyway, I haven't heard of him, and I half imagine it's just some little thing some guy's trying to put together. I don't really see any harm there myself; at least he sent you an email. However, it's totally your discretion whether or not to let him use it or not.. I personally doubt I would let him have my stuff, but that's just me.

I've submitted art before and gotten my copy. It's an ok zine...just a little black and white fanzine, about 20-30 pages or so.

I am not too crazy about his system of having the artists pay shipping, but that may be due to low reader volume ....perhaps the zine doens't make enough to justify paying artists shipping.

Allowing him to print your art though is a good way to get a little exposure. Perhaps add a little email address to your art so people will be able to contact you for commissions.

Ooops....forgot to switch my user name. That last post under the username 5_billion was from me.

it's this free-for-all journal that a friend of mine created.
You can log in, and write stuff, just for fun. I guess the intent is to have as many people as possible writing on it. Something to do I guess?

Go check out the user info page for it...it tells about it. =)

Yes hes a real sweetheart. He published one of my works not too long ago and sent me a copy absolutely free for my own collection. Definitely legit.

Aatheus is a good guy and he puts out a small press zine called Herd Mentality that is all 'taurs. I am in a few issues too, and there are a few good artists

Yeah I have submitted art to this zine too, though I have yet to get a copy cause I haven't sent him money for a copy yet. I intend to send some more in soon.

Go for it! I had my art in the 'zine before! :) Got a free copy too! He's a really nice guy!
