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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get you set up with your own canvas or matte paper archival print!
I did her as part of a series of original “anime style” designs for Evillecon 2016! (Which, by the way, was incredibly fun.)

Ain’t he a doll? I am so ridiculously proud of this guy.
Here’s how he looks as an actual glass, featured on the Tin Man Facebook Page.
More on that fantastic Illustrator Glass Series|Tin Man Brewing Co website
As you can see, the Tin Man Illustrator Glassware Series is amazing…many of my buddies are featured on these awesome glasses including Arts Council of Doom artists Stephanie Osborne, Melissa Erwin, Amy Wilke, Jacob Walker, WILKE, and Gary Logan Hobdy…and now, yes, now they have finally decided to do something insane and feature MY DESIGN.
Even better, I somehow supremely lucked out and got October. Yeah, Oktoberfest, millions of people chugging beer, our own Fall Festival on Franklin Street…October. AND they plan to start selling these glasses daily, not once a week. I hope they sell out and make lots of money. (Though I do want there to be a couple left for me to buy)
I’ll unveil my design when they do, probably around October 1 or 2. In the meantime, go look at all the other FREAKING AWESOME MINDBLOWING AWE-INSPIRING glasses from the past! They’re so good! Sooooogooood. Much like the delicious beer and food at Tin Man…which I highly recommend.
As you may see in the “Upcoming Events” section below, I hope to be at The Arts Council of Doom‘s Space Madness II: There is No Cure group art show this summer.
The first Space Madness show was back in 2012 and was absolutely amazing. I was just becoming aware of the Arts Council of Doom’s activities when they were doing this show. Therefore, I missed it. So how do I know how stunning the show was?!
JEANNIE WORLEY’S AWESOME PHOTOS DOCUMENTING THE EVENT!!
You can see them two different places, on The Arts Council of Doom’s tumbr, and in this Facebook album. They give you some idea of how truly mindblowing this upcoming show promises to be. Check ’em out! And then come see the show. I’ll have more information on the 2014 show when I have a firm date, flyer and etc for it. Stay tuned!
