Within and Without Virtual Launch Party

Filed under: A Stranger Dream,Events,My Drawings/Paintings — sarah @ 8:18 am

This weekend is the virtual launch party of my poetry, music and art album Within and Without. It went live at 10 am this morning :)

There will be give aways and postings of links, explanations of the recordings, videos and more. I am running a Facebook Event, a Google Plus Collection as well as blogging across various platforms :)

I will be going until 11 pm Sunday evening!

Within and Without is an on going art, poetry and music project that I started several years ago. This is the first part and contains the visual poem A Stranger Dream which is also a colouring in book I have produced. Some of the colouring in sheets or art visuals are included in the download along with art work from a sister book not yet released that goes with the track Winter’s Heart.

The whole download costs £1 and comes free with any merch purchase you make. If you wish to just just purchase the merch you can go to my Etsy shop.

I hope you all enjoy the work.

Line Sketches

Filed under: Uncategorized — sarah @ 9:43 am

I’ve been trying to do more quick simple line sketches to catch the shapes and movements. These are just in what ever note book I happen to have at the time, being trained in field work I have a tendency to want to annotate all the pictures and have to keep reminding myself that it is not needed!

Cowfish South Africa

These are some of the ones I did in South Africa, I wish I’d done more but tended to be chasing small people and making sure they did not climb into lion dens (which the youngest did actually attempt :/ ).

Blue the penguin Cape Town

We visited alot of rescue centres and sanctuaries so not everything I saw and drew was native to South Africa – like these Hopper Penguins.

The Garden – Water Colour

Filed under: My Drawings/Paintings — sarah @ 8:33 am

The Garden

I painted this as a present for my inlaws – it is their garden and cat Wallace. I loved how the light shone through the palm tree in the morning whilst we were staying with them and how the plants frames the mountain.

Wallace the Cat

It’s Simons Town South Africa for those who want to know :)

We still have the Cafe Press shop but I am always on the look out for other outlets of my art works etc… so if you know of anything good please let me know :) Ta!

Whimsical Moon

Whimsical Moon

This is a water colour painting on A3 paper – it was painted during a super moon event that my friend felt had significant astrological importance. She ran a group meditation and I painted.

Leonid Afremov

Filed under: Art and Drawings — sarah @ 10:27 am

I spend too much time on Twitter and I found a little while back that these vivid paintings kept appearing in my time line – they are full of colour and energy and seem to suggest people living life to the full even if there are no people in the actual painting. So I prodded around a bit and discovered the artist on twitter – Leonid Afremov.

I thought I’d share him with you guys – so here is his website.

The Neons – Secret Art Project

Filed under: Events,My Drawings/Paintings — sarah @ 10:07 am

So I have a Patreon account – the idea is that people can basically sponsor me to create art, poetry, science etc… at the moment I am posting the progress of a secret art project up on there. Though the art work will eventually go live for everyone to see you are looking at a year or so I think but if you are a patreon then you can see how and when the project progresses – this is only fair as it is money from this platform that has allowed me to buy the art supplies I need for said project.

There will be extras for the higher paying patreons as well :)

Also it is not the only thing – often my stories and poems appear on there before they go public as well.

One secret art project.

Art Prints

Filed under: A Stranger Dream,My Drawings/Paintings — sarah @ 3:38 pm

Art prints of A Stranger Dream have arrived – these are wonderful – I am really chuffed with the quality and I have found some black frames which work really well with the images.

Identity Clinging framed print

Currently there are only three designs: Dismissed, Identity Clinging and Love. As these sell I will have enough capital to get more made but it is going to be a slow roll out – sorry guys!

Art Prints of A Stranger Dream artwork

Also I am not currently selling things online other than the book itself which you can get through amazon. The reason for this is that the after affects of head bang make it still a bit too much for me but I am selling them at events.

Busy with Stuff!

Filed under: Uncategorized — sarah @ 9:59 am

I am still uber busy with the colouring book visual poem A Stranger Dream: Love that a launched at the end of April. It is steadily selling and I have actually gotten around to sending out some review copies (yes I know it is supposed to happen before you release the book :) ).

Posting out copies of A Stranger Dream

I sold out of the heart handled mugs with the art work Love on it – one of the pictures from the book. I have ordered more and they have now arrived :) I am still sorting out the Normal Mugs with normal handles but will have them soon :)

Yesterday the first lot of artwork badges arrived and I have homed 3 of them already :)

Shut up Badges from A Stranger Dream

There is a still quiet a bit of a to-do list to get everything I want to go with the book/be done with the art work :)

So far no bad reviews (that wont last but for now I am basking).

I am down to just two copies of the books I had to sell – there is another lot en-route, I will have them with me tonight at the poetry slam. Otherwise the next chance to buy the books and artwork stuff from me is going to be The Mini-Mall Con in June :)

(I may also be making Alaric dress as young spock once again which as those who came to my 30th know is a treat worth it’s weight in jelly beans!).

Of course you can order it on line from Amazon.

I hope to be doing more shows, stalls and things with it and I will be seeing if I can make the video of good enough quality to maybe show at an event but we are looking at next year for that sort of thing :)

Stories and poems are starting to go up on the various Monster Blogs once more which has been a long time coming thanks to head bang stuff. However slight change… they now tend to get pre-viewed on my Patreon account for those who are supporting me financially – to be honest though it paid for me to launch and create A Stranger Dream I still do not have quiet enough to be replacing the tech I need to replace and to make the blogs ad free etc… So if you find yourself with monies and you want to see stories and art from me… (yeah I hate asking for money but you know it has to happen or I actually can’t afford to be producing this stuff!).

Anyway…. my patreon.

Also – yes a lot of alsos :) I will have art at Art in the Park Cheltenham this summer.

And lastly – I really liked working on A Stranger Dream colouring in book, about 2 weeks in I made a list of other colouring in books I would like to make both poetry and not poetry based. So last week I popped a poll up to narrow down which one to work on next. I only gave four options and the ability for people to suggest other things… the resounding favourite option was Myths and Legends so I have started work on that.

I have a couple of commissions at the moment so it has to fit in around them but it has begun!

…..

Opps I lied one more thing or maybe two!!!

I will be doing a set at Science Show Off in Bristol on Weds 25th of May at the Grain Barge – there will be stars and poems and possibly a puppet but hopefully no singing!

And there will be steam punk and science-craft workshops run by me at Wychwood Musical Festival :)

I do have a news letter…

I think that’s everything but probably isn’t!
