Oh, happiness! New shirts up at Threaded Canvas and an announcement

Art shirts by Heather Landry featuring horror art about Lilith, Adam, Cthulhu, Darkness by Byron and a faceless crowd.

Yeah, I just happened to see that my new shirts are up at Threaded Canvas!!

(I’ve been kinda busy)

Anyway, I’m especially happy to see my Darkness linoleum block print on there because I will be launching into a NEW series about the poem after finishing up some jobs…AND IT IS NOW A CONFIRMED SOLO EXHIBITION FOR SUMMER-FALL 2015 WITH A VENUE. I’m going all out on this one. For those of you who haven’t read my earlier posts, I did a series of traditional prints to illustrate Byron’s poem back in 2001.

Now, 14 years later, I want to show myself and one very special fan how far I’ve come.

Haha YES, I’ve chosen the day I’m at both Night Gallery and Nomadic Views to unveil a secret…I’m doing the October Sketch Challenge again! If you’re in Evansville, IN feel free to stop by The Ahh Spa between 5:45pm and 9pm and say Hi!! If you’re in Nashville, TN look out for original drawn-on pigment prints of my pieces DIVE and City Eye at the Corvidae Collective Gallery in the Arcade!!

That’s right, one scary sketch a day, for every delicious spooky day in October. BOO! Here’s my first four sketches, I’ll attempt to do something close to a one-a-day update after tonight. You can watch the updates roll in over at http://sandpaperdaisy.tumblr.com!!

If you don’t recognize these creepy beasties by the way, they are animatronics from the amazing horror video game 5 Nights at Freddy’s. I fell in love with this chilling and creepy game after watching Markiplier‘s youtube videos of it. I can’t get enough!! Don’t be surprised if there’s more Freddy in my sketches over the month.

As with my 2013 round of sketches, I’ll be updating this website after October with a massive gallery of the entire month’s sketches for you to enjoy.

Night Gallery is tomorrow!

Gorgeous morbic handmade jewelry by Silent Salvation Jewelry

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.

A couple of more previews of Nomadic Views art!

images from the upcoming October 4rth 2014 art opening at Corvidae Collective in Nashville

Check them out, don’t they look awesome?? This from Corvidae Collective’s facebook page. I’m also blown away that DIVE is honored to appear next to these awesome pieces. I just know that the overall show is going to be phenomenal. I can tell that the leftmost image is another one by Karen Short, but I’ll have to find out who did the middle one (which I also adore) so I can point you toward their page.

I did discover another awesome artist named Dolly Gode through this art show though. She’s freaking awesome!! I don’t know if she did the middle image or not, but I like her work a lot.

New interview over at The Penny Hoarder!

Tips and tricks from Heather Landry AKA Sandpaperdaisy on saving money as an artist

Yep, someone at the largest money-saving blog in the world, The Penny Hoarder, actually agreed to let me open my big fat mouth to staff writer Lauren Tharp for an interview on ways to cut costs while making art. You might be familiar with all of these tricks or you might not, but believe me I picked my brain for every sneaky little way I could think of to save a few bucks. I’m blushing a little though, the article makes it sound like these are all my ideas and achievements. Actually, the credit goes to all of my artist buddies and acquaintances who’ve shared tips and organized great events over the years.
