Rumjahn Gallery page!

I’m very happy to be featured at the gorgeous new Rumjahn Gallery along with some of my favorite local artists (and many other awesome ones I’m encountering for the first time)! If you haven’t stopped by yet, you need to…they’ve really done an amazing job with the space. I love their setup and their variety. And if you’re an artist looking to show work, they’re really nice folks!

Here’s the link to my profile, you can see all kinds of neat artists on there.

Rumjahn Gallery and Framery is at 310 Main Street, Evansville IN 47708, and they’re open Tuesday-Saturday 10-5.

Robot Invasion New Harmony Art Gallery article

Robot Mermaid was featured in this article where I was initially credited as Heather Landrey AKA Sandpaperdais (in case you came here from a search). I’ll update on here when my name/handle get updated, but in any case I was very happy to be included with all these awesome artists in what has turned out to be a truly amazing art show. The show closes this Saturday, so head on down to New Harmony Art Gallery if you get the chance!

As the article explains, my Robot Mermaid was created from fractals. I love the idea of math creating artistic forms, and math seemed the obvious approach for robot art since robots rely so heavily upon math to be designed and created and then go on to perform functions. In this case the fractals form speakers that the mermaid uses to project her enticing song and lure sailors.

The canvas from this show has found a new home, but anyone wishing to have their own Robot Mermaid can email me at sandpaperdaisy@gmail.com and I’ll get you set up with your own canvas or matte paper archival print!

Evillecon 2016 March 18-20

Evillecon raced up so fast this year I can’t even believe it’s here. As always, I’ll be there in the Artist’s Alley with my friend and booth partner Cora Dean, selling our sometimes cute and sometimes horrifying (okay that last bit is me) original and anime culture creations!

The convention is at Old National Events Plaza this coming March 18-20. Can’t wait to see you there.

Postscript:

I will be doing my best to adhere to the policies of any original creator(s) where fan art is involved. My personal policy is to only feature fan art I was commissioned to make, or something I researched/asked and determined I could offer for sale in a limited way. This policy has evolved over the years into what it is now, so if I’ve missed someone in the process I offer my sincere apologies.

Presumably from my unlighted jail cell.

Yeah I was a bit late in promoting this one yah! BUT, always good to direct more folks to these great guys. Especially the amazing KC Grifant, whose story “Better Halves” still creeps me out months after reading it for the first time.

Check out Grifant’s amazing story and others in The Lovecraft eZine, and below here’s a full shot of my illustration and a “big eyed” variant I did during the revision process!

Featured Artist: January 2016 Horror Zine

Check out the feature here! http://thehorrorzine.com/Art/Jan2016/HeatherLandry/Heather.html

This is a horror art feature of my work since my August 2013 feature there. I’m happy to be in this fantastic magazine again! The printed January 2016 version will be coming out soon and will also have one of my pieces in it.

Be sure to look at the other incredible artists too. I really enjoyed being introduced to the freaky mixed media of Claudio Parentela and the luminous (yet thematically dark) digital art of Angela He!
