I spent the month of October 2018 (or #inktober2018 if you will) doing a series of ink drawings based on stories contained on the SCP website. If you haven’t come across them yet, they’re a treasure-trove of cooperatively created weird fiction and horror. I may do another SCP series one day: the stories are always being added to.
Below is the entire series. The first one is a kelpie or river horse, another favorite creature/monster of mine but not drawn from a specific SCP story. Continue reading
“Twin solo shows” probably sounds a little weird, but basically I’ve got exhibitions running concurrently at The Dapper Pig and Blick Art Materials, both in Evansville, Indiana. They both run through June! Continue reading
100 Keys is taken directly from the description a friend gave me of her recurring nightmare, some years ago. When she first saw it, she said I had “taken her breath away.”
100 Keys will later be completed as a short comic.
First off let’s get the link out of the way: http://tapastic.com/sandpaperdaisy
If you hit that, you’ll see my profile on there. On the far right is the Series column, and I am going to be stuffing that column in the months to come! The first of these is called Awake.
Awake premiered in Winter 2006 and came from my own life. I was newly married, slowly learning to stop objectifying my husband and start loving the real, three-dimensional imperfect man. The first stages of my love, where I thought of him as my angel who was there to fix me, were more empty…an emotional echo-chamber. Once I recognized him as a complex human, someone wholly apart from myself, our love became more rich, warm and satisfying.
Awake will update once a week, every Monday. It is 30 pages long. But the comics don’t stop there. After Awake, here’s what you’ll see:
The Ruby Machine
The Stone Squirrel with new material: *true ending*
The Pretty Sun
The killing of Dreams
Tales from the Clarkside complete online for the first time
The Ocean with new material, comic finish
That, is going to be a lot of damned comics. And after all those, I will have merely prepared the way for what I truly want to show you.
But first, I invite you to walk the path I have walked. I hope you enjoy yourself as much as I have.
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!
Hey guys, I’ve had the majestic Ergo Sum hanging at Toast for sometime now, but recently I added three new canvases. See if you spot them on your next visit! Trash Rose, A Message, and Endless Forest are all archivally printed, stretched and sealed by myself, with additional hand-drawn accents in white paint pen. They’re all 16×20 and only $85 each! Just ask your server or management if you want to take one home.
Here’s Toast’s website: http://www.toastevv.com/
They’re located at 1550 Mesker Park Dr, Evansville, IN 47720, inside the Helfrich Hills Golf Course.
I did this piece for the 4rth annual Mythmaking show at PG. The show hangs until April 15 and has a ton of amazing art, I’ll try to get down there and snap pix before it comes down.
As for my piece, it represents a couplet from the Ripley Scroll, a medieval text on magic and alchemy.
“The Bird of Hermes is my name/Eat my wings to make me tame.”
The Ruby Machine 6 page comic has been uploaded in full to read from this website, enjoy!
Here it is! http://www.indyplanet.com/front/?product=109508
44 pages printed, all color, with pin-ups, $5.99. I am incredibly thrilled about this and pleasantly surprised. I FINALLY have it in print, online somewhere for people to buy. Who knows what approach I’ll ultimately end up taking with my comics, but I finally took my first big step getting this one out there!!
A note about the IndyPlanet digital download pricing:
You may notice a $0.99 digital download option. That was entirely my fault, I didn’t notice the “digital download” field when I set up the listing. I actually intend for all digital downloads to be $2.99 to be in line with the Kindle listing, where a comic of The killing of Dreams’ file size can’t be listed for such a low price. However, several comics have already sold at $0.99 so I’m in a rather interesting position at the moment! The only solution I can think of that will confuse the least amount of people (hopefully) is to honor this price mistake until my comic goes off the front page of IndyPlanet. So feel free to take advantage of my mistake! Don’t worry I’ll still be making a bit of money so you’re not ripping me off or costing me money.
