All June Sales Will Be Donated to BlackLivesMatter
Hey guys! I’ll be donating any art revenue I make in June to help out with #BlackLivesMatter. I’ll be making my decision(s) closer to when I have a more sizable donation pool, but I welcome any input on good organizations to throw money at!
Currently, I’ve gathered money from my patreon, society6 and a recent freelance job, and I’ll also be donating the sales of these two pieces at the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana‘s upcoming Unsheltered show (assuming they make it in).
And if I make any other print on demand sales, any of you guys email me for a print, or I do any more freelance work in the month of June, that money will be donated as well. I may or may not do commissions to reward people for making donations of their own, but that’s more “iffy” since I’ve been having some humorously strong headaches recently.
Either way, feel free to drop any links of deserving organizations in the comments below! And I hope you all have a very safe month of June, filled with love and unity.
FALL YART 2019
We had a truly wonderful time this Autumn YART, held at Angel Mounds State Historic Site on October 23, 2019 from 10am-4pm. The weather was gorgeous, as you can see below in the second group of pix.

Make100 Kickstarter Art Print Campaign
Hey guys! I am very thrilled to announce that I’m running a (currently funded) kickstarter campaign for the purpose of selling painted archival matte prints of Robot Mermaid and The Queen of Air and Darkness, a new black and white fractal work depicting Queen Morgause of Arthurian legend.
Here’s the kickstarter link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sandpaperdaisy/make-100-painted-art-prints-robot-mermaid-dark-que
As for this special Painted edition, this means I will be doing a limited run of archival matte 8×10 prints, and that this run will feature artist brushstokes in gold paint pen for Robot Mermaid, and silver paint pen for The Queen of Air and Darkness.
Below are individual shots of the two prints being offered. If you’d like a print or just want to make a small donation, come check out the page!
I’m also planning to do a kickstarter-themed article after the campaign’s over, to share what I learned!

SculptEVV on June 6 this year…I’ll be there!
SculptEVV is an awesome local (Evansville, IN) outdoor art event at Haynie’s Corner with tons of artists of all disciplines, live music and great food at the same location. Going on at the same time are amazing sculpture installations and other events.
Incidentally, I always offer all kinds of deals at my tent, and many others do too. Whether you want to see some fab sculptures, hear the free band, or go feel the pulse of the local art scene and gab with artists of all descriptions, it’s a great day. I have even been known to go play in the fountain.
Here’s my last post about SculptEVV with a few more photos. I had to miss out on last year’s event to finish up a HUGE project, but I’m back this year and it promises to be better than ever.
Emerging: Featured Artist at the Bower-Suhrheinrich Gallery, January
Yep! I’m happy to say that I’ll be the featured artist in the window of the Bower-Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery from January 9 to February 4 (or possibly 5). I’m quite grateful to be given this awesome chance to show off my recent work, as well as a couple of pieces I just finished last night.
(Or this morning at 3am, depending on how accurate you wish to be!)
Wired Holiday Fair!!!
Yeah, I’m completely floored, but the fact is that this year I will be a part of this amazing experience. This art/craft show is filled to the brim with some of the best artists and crafters in the area, and I’ll be there with them. I can’t overstate how happy I am.
Here’s the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/752170168174181/
The basics, this is a big art and jewelry/craft sale on December 13th, going on from 10am to 4pm at the Wired Coffee House, RAIN OR SHINE. There’s going to be an immense amount of talent here and I will be bringing my best game, including some new art.
This is a fantastic opportunity to pick up one-of-a-kind, thoughtful, and most of all FREAKIN’ AWESOME presents for pretty much anyone in your life. The prices are always nuts too (me and a lot of my buds here practically give our art away, it’s crazy) so this is a holiday shopping event not to be missed on any level.
Fall YART is just around the corner…Haynie’s Corner!
From the YART facebook page:
We are thrilled to announce that the beautiful green space at the new 22 Jefferson Art Studios and Gallery, in the Haynie’s Corner Arts District, will host our Fall YART 2014 sale!

HECK YEAH!!! I can’t wait, can you? Here’s the Facebook Event Page too: https://www.facebook.com/events/361314300704443/
Here’s some of what was at Night Gallery!
Would you know it, my phone died while I was setting up. No event photos for me! Fortunately for you all, I went and grabbed a lot of art for myself. So I can at least show you pics of what I bought. If I get permission, I’ll also feature some other pieces of art I admired that I know people took pictures of, so stay tuned for a possible update.
First off, the featured image above is a painting on poster-board by Ryan McCain, who somehow manages to be an amazing artist and a heck of a nice guy as well!! He has a huge body of work and he’s done mural work too…I’m a new huge fan. The second image of a creepy and fascinating guy is by Ryan too:
Below, I also snatched up a gorgeous little wire and bead tree on driftwood by Damon Murray. Next year this sculpture artist will have an even more amazing array of art, which will be hard considering how beautiful all of his trees and other small wire sculptures are. But he’s experimenting with MAGNETS now!! Our fellow artist Megan Black showed me an amazing little spider he made that actually moves and dances because of magnets. It was awesome…
Speaking of Megan Black! Check this out: this year she premiers her new loveable and intricate Voodoo Babiez styles!! Each one of these individual dolls is painstakingly and lovingly crafted with Meghan’s love rather than with bad juujuu, and I GOT ONE. Not only one, a PINK BUNNY ONE. …yeah my excitement pretty much knew no bounds when I took this little lady home…
Lastly, I grabbed an amazing Monster Pin-Up Calender by Christy Jochum!
I also admired everyone else’s stuff including all the amazing vintage paintings and drawings by Lisa Herzog.
It was a fantastic event and a great night all around, I can’t wait to see who will be there next year!
Night Gallery is tomorrow!
Come on down to the Ahh Spa, 600 North Weinbach, tomorrow October 4rth from 6pm to 9pm to snap up some fantastic scary and morbid art, jewelry and other treats and goodies! At least 20% of all sales go to benefit PAAWS Animal Rescue, and some artists do more! The lovely piece above is by Jamie Gish-Bates of Silent Salvation Jewelry and Watches.
Here’s the Night Gallery event page where you can see awesome art and cute Voodoo Babiez plushies that people will be bringing, and more! I’ll be bringing a fistful of new morbid and creepy art prints, so be warned.
My new mini-comic.
I debuted this at Cincy Comicon 2014, it collects “The Ruby Machine” and “The Stone Squirrel.” I did a little cover for The Stone Squirrel and messed with the ending pages until I liked them slightly better, it ended up being a 20 page comic. I’ll be offering it for $3 and The Killing of Dreams 45 page horror comic for $5 at Night Gallery 2014, along with some new prints.
Oh and here’s the back cover. Shingo again! That sneaky guy. If you want to see a couple of internal pages there’s three in the COMICS section, as well as a link to The Ruby Machine.
