While one initially might be tempted to suggest a private deal with 
those artist who comes up with good derivatives, there is a catch. There 
might be a chain of derivatives - and all artists in such a chain would 
need to agree to your private deal, which would undo the practical and 
administrative gains of using a CC-license. Only direct derivatives of 
works for which _you_ are the copyright holder could easily be handled 
by a private deal. So I would suggest the CC-BY-SA license. That would 
allow you (and anyone else) to make money out of derivative works based 
on "Robot George".

That or write your own license...
