Stylized works of art in illustrations

Hi Adobe community,

 

I’m creating a series of vector illustrations depicting sets of emblematic buildings and major sights (of german cities) in a stylized graphic form. For some additional flavour I would like to include one or two emblematic works of art permanently present in the public space (like the sculpture “Molecule Man” or murals from the “East Side Gallery” in Berlin). Now, to reproduce a work of art in a commercial context you need the premission of the artist (or rights owner) – but is this also true for a stylized interpretation in form of an illustration (i.e. not a photorealistic depiction)?

 

Cheers, Till.

I think Adobe will take the view that, yes, they should and will respect this IP., and they will reject your work (good as it may be) unless you have a release. I recommend that, if your main focus is selling stock, you avoid other people's IP. Bear in mind that buildings are IP too!

Thanks for your answer! That seems reasonable. I will check, if there is a chance to get a release for the art, or leave it out.

 

Concerning the IP on buildings: I expect it to be save, if I pick historic buildings or I choose a level of abstraction seen in illustrations already accepted by Adobe Stock, like:

Hi @tillt ,

If there is the option for illustrative editorial on your account submission page, you probably could try one to see if it would be accepted. Editorial do not require IP release. 

Best wishes
