If we can get permission
It was found as an exclusive art on that Vice article reimagining 1984. Joe Baker is the artist in question, but I have no idea on how to contact him since there are no links to any art profile of his.
Clock is set.
Anyone trying to seek permission?
Six votes for 22.
Since we can't seem to get a hold of the artist, but the image is perfect, what's the procedure?
Maybe contact the author of the Vice article to see if they still have the artist's contact info?
We do have a thread for pics awaiting permission, but it's not very productive.

Here's Beckett Mufson's profile that also links to his Twitter, Instagram and email account. So, who should contact him? Is it the admin or something?

I think we'd need to contact the artist directly, but I didn't see contact information for him in the article unless I missed something.
That's the problem, there is no contact info on Joe Baker. This is an exclusive artwork featured on Vice along with four other artworks. The artwork is not featured anywhere except in articles that link back to the original Vice article. Searching Joe Baker on the web has been a needle in the haystack since apparently he has no artwork profile to speak of (or least any that feature this one). So the author of the article is our best bet to Joe Baker.
I tweeted Mufson; let's see if he replies.
No word as of yet.
Still no word; starting to think this is a lost cause.
Use it and let them respond on their own time?
In instances where we don't get a response after asking permission, can we put up the pic (with artist credit) and only take it down later if there's objection from the rights holders later?
We've done it before, so yes.
Votes bump; two options w/positive ratios ATM.
Calling. The new pic's in and tagged; this one will be going on the "multiple threads" list. Caption beyond the source?
