Make100 Kickstarter Art Print Campaign

robot mermaid dark queen kickstarter archival paint print sale cyborg fractal surreal women legend fantasy

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!

flyer for art show with heather landry and jon fuchs at alhambra theatre evansville features prismatic watercolors and bright digital art

Jon and I work great together and often find inspiration in each other’s art! Jon’s beautiful watercolors with their brilliant prismatic colors and playful subject matter (like “50 Shades of Greyhound,” pictured on the far left of our HARMONY flyer) go perfectly with my own bright digital paintings.

Plus, I just love working with this man!

Our art hangs at the Alhambra Theatre at Haynie’s Corner Arts District, Evansville IN thru June. We’ll also be displaying out front this June First Fridays, June 3rd 6pm-9pm. Come see us!

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.

At Evillecon this weekend!!

the artists of sandpaperdaisy art booth at Evillecon 2014.

Hence the horrible 2 second sketch. My partner Cora Dean and I will be in the Artist Alley all weekend and this is probably what you will see if you come visit–us bent over our sketchpads. We’re usually kept insanely busy doing commissions all day and all night. (It might have something to do with the fact that I offer Quick n Dirty $5 Color Commissions, fulfilled by convention’s end.)

The Evillecon Anime Convention is at the Clarion Inn, 4101 Highway 41 North, Evansville, IN 47714, beginning 12pm on Friday March 28th and wrapping up late Sunday afternoon, March 30th. Below is the map of the convention area with our booth in the Artist Alley highlighted, and a closeup of just the Artist Alley.

Normal online activity should resume Monday March 31. Until then!
