If you can't get permission from the artist (or don't want the hassle)
then you are not allowed to copy the whole image.
However I *think* you can use a reduced size image to link to the irtc
entry (thumbnail links seem to have been approved in the US) or you
could take a cropped portion of the image.
If you use a cropped thumbnail to link to the original image then I
can't see anyone would want to complain and I'm pretty sure they'd have
no legal grounds to complain either.
