I got my samples a little while ago - these are some of the best stickers I've seen so far!!
Your Marie Antoinette already looks very pretty! I can't wait to see the finished oil painting.
I saw a PBS bio of her a few nights ago. It was surprising to learn that she was married to the King of France at the age of 14.
Thank you very much! I'll probably finish her up when I get back from my trip. It's kind of a fairy themed painting that is inspired by the Marie Antoinette style....
She really did have a crazy, fascinating and ultimately sad life. I'm looking forward to the Sofia Coppola movie coming out soon....
I love the 3 kitties sticker!! By the way, I saw a car yesterday with one of your stickers on it, it turned before I could tell which one exactly it was! :) Have a great vacation, you DESERVE some fun and relaxation!
Thank you mom!
That is so neat, I love seeing my stuff unexpectedly!
Matt & I are SO excited. I can't wait!!!
Very cute sketches/lighters Jasmine!
Glad you had a great painting retreat with Larry! I loved his work (along with fellow TSR artists Jeff Easley, Fred Fields, Clyde Caldwell & Keith Parkinson) when I was younger.
Hope you and Matt have a great vacation!!
Thank you Adam! The old TSR art is pretty much the whole reason I became interested in pursuing fantasy art as a career, I owe Larry a lot.
I went to his retreat back in March too. Next year I'm going with him and some other fantasy artists for an "art vacation" in France!
Matt & I are so excited for our trip! We bought some much needed new luggage today, so we're pretty much all set after we send out some last minute print orders >^___^
I know you are probably busy busy, but just on the off chance and for a general fyi:
Robyn Hitchcock is playing at The Magic Bag in Detroit (not that it's close to you...nowhere he plays is, though) and I'm a-gonna go. He's also playing the night before in Chicago. I'm going to the Detroit show mainly because Andrew (of Valerie and Andrew Thompson fame) lives there and he is super psyched about going and since I love RH and Andrew what better thing than both at the same time?
Anyway...if you are interested you should come, too. Even though flying to Detroit on a whim sounds fairly rediculous...more rediculous things have been done.
Holy crap! That is way awesome. I do ridiculous things all the time, lol. When is he playing??
It's November 9th at The Magic Bag (cool bar 2 miles from andrew's house) in Detroit and I assume he plays at standard bar time (9/10ish)
The October 8th gig in Chicago...I don't know where that one is but it's on his tour date list.
I'm searching frantically for airline tickets that are as close to 200 bucks as possible. Seems like airlines are sooooo expensive these days. I think it was 260 when I went to visit Betsy in Colorado Springs....so far I've found 237 as the lowest price. Cost about that much in gas to drive the 12 hours there in back so I guess I may as well fly....oh well...you only live once.
Anyway, I'll be flying in to Detroit sometime the afternoon of the 9th and leaving that following Sunday for KC.
Aw shoot! On October 8th I'll be out of the country (hehe, four countries in seven days!), and November I'll be getting ready for the Renaissance Festival =P Darn you Robyn Hitchcock!
You should check his website, though, and see if he's gonna play anywhere reasonable in the distant future and block out some time to be able to go. He isn't old but he ain't gettin' any younger.
I'll take photos at the show if I can and send them to you!
Hehe, I've just bookmarked his tour page! I need to see him live. It scared me when Syd Barrett died (not that he was ever going to tour again) that I need to get out and see the bands I love while they are still around.
I was in CHIMERA today, a fantasy shop in Amsterdam and I saw loads of your cards there.
THey also have Amy Brown and a few others. I bought one of yours and when I was in the train home, I noticed something weird!
The card does not have your name on it ANYWHERE
Nothing at all is printed on it.
Luckily I took a pic of it for you.
Gosh - they look exactly like the Tree-Free cards I have licensed. Is there any information at all on the back fo the card?
Nothing at all. I think it has your Leo painting on the back, but slightly see thru.
I found that odd too. Why would they have the card with the other fairy on the front, and then a zodiac pic on the other side. Made no sense.
I had no idea untill I was in the train and got a better look at it.
Otherwise I could have asked for more information.http://www.fantasyshopchimera.com/default.asp
Here is their link
I hope you can get information from them.
They also had a T-shirt there with one of your paintings one it.
How weird! I emailed them. I think that they typically order my Tree-Free cards there =/ Somebody must be ripping them off.
Well the Tree-Free Cards have "Leo" on the back of all of their envelopes - maybe somebody scanned in the envelopes to put on the back. They're definitely all taken from my Tree-Free Cards - I recognize the cropping & editing (they always change the images a little - like with Devilish Fairy they gave her a red background instead of a black background, etc.). Hopefully they will write back to me soon.
I can't find the card I bought, I think my cousin must have taken it back with her stuff. Otherwise I would have scanned it in.
I can always call them if you don't get a reply from their email.
I am sure I can find their phone number.
I just talked to a lady who works there - she said that they were ordered from Tree-Free!
Oh good!! :)
So they are ok then?
Hopefully! They should have the info on the back though if they are legit. She's going to go look at the cards tomorrow and check with their distributor.
Thank you again so much Lindy for the head's up!
Glad to help.
I just heard back from them again:
"I had a vew weeks ago a girl in the shop, I think dutch, who said she knows you very well, if she is the one that advised you I think it is strange, because she did not buy a card, nor looked at them from close.by they are in a celophan wrapping and the envelope covers the back, so there is no way to see if the printing was on it or not. but I know almost sure she did not touch them at all . If you have a blanc card it was 100% sure not bought in my shop."
- do you think that you saw the envelope on the back rather than the back of the card? The envelopes have my Leo painting on them (for all the cards).
I was there only a week ago...maybe she didnt mean me. I didn't mention to them that I knew you, I said it to my cousin, maybe she over heard. (I was a bit excited about it)
Grr, my cousin took the card with her by mistake and shelives in London, I will email her and ask her to scan it in for me.
I am sorry, I didn't mean to cause trouble for the shop or you :(
I will go mail me cousin right away.
Lol, not a problem! The lady gave me the order numbers from when she bought the cards from Tree-Free - I'm sure they're legit. I'll bet you actually saw the envelope maybe stuck to the back or something.
The lady there is very nice - she also is a customer with The Mountain for my shirts!
Next time I go there, I will buy a shirt aswell. I wanted one really badly but I didn't have enough money with me.
Next time I will make sure to take enough
Ah it is a tree card!!! :)
Yay! Oh good! =)
Thank you again Lindy!!!
