I stand with @jeffsotoart and @maxxer242 because I believe they have the right to be fairly compensated if their work is used in a corporate ad campaign. I stand against the bullying tactics that a powerful corporation like Mercedes Benz is using to intimidate Jeff and Max. Visit the link in bio for more info from The @detroitnews. Thanks for caring. – Shepard #artistsrights
