Art Theft!

IMPORTANT for all creators and people who purchase artwork!

Randy Martinez recently had his Star Wars Celebration art stolen from him which is, of course, devastating. There are a lot of scams out there, and many artists have had their work stolen from them (including myself) over the years. Making a living in this line of work is challenging, and dirtbags that lie and steal really don’t help.

I think Randy has gotten the Facebook site taken down, but of course it surely still continues in the murky waters of the internet. On behalf of Randy and all visual artist out there, please be sure to purchase artwork either directly from the artist themselves, OR from a link that particular artist provides. Purchasing T-Shirts, prints, etc, from third-party vendors is becoming more and more perilous for both buyers and sellers of legitimate art. Help us all by supporting your favorite creators directly or through the links those creators provide. Thank you for reading this, and feel free to share the knowledge! ♥

 

Art Update!

Preview for Perna Studios’ Elementals trading card set

It has been a crazy winter, both weather-wise and work-wise! All my major contracts are complete, although there are several on the horizon (yay!) and I look forward to chatting about those.

Below are a few things I’ve finished that can be shown, such as the preview for Perna Studio’s “Elementals” trading card set, due out soon. (they are also on Facebook, if you prefer to visit them there… Perna Studios Facebook ). Rogue One series 2 is also done, but cannot show those quite yet. From what I understand, it doesn’t look like there will be any more Rogue One cards, so that is that. My cards for Star Wars 40th Anniversary are also complete! I really wish I could have had more time to put into them because the Star Wars 30th Anniversary was my very first sketch card set! Gosh time flies……

I also did some cards for Upper Deck’s Spiderman set, as well as Topps’s Walking Dead season 6, which was surprisingly fun… I’m sure people hate it, but I do love painting me some trees. And blood & guts are fun too! Though I did very little of that for this set. Should I be fortunate enough to participate in a future set, it’ll be oozy-goozy guts everywhere. 🙂

I also have a couple of new watercolors posted on my Patreon, along with a short tale that explains where each one was from. There are many, many more to come! You can see them here: www.patreon.com/ingridhardy  and don’t forget, if you wish to count yourself among those amazing few who help keep a “traditional” artist fed, as little as a dollar a month (refusable by you any time) helps me to make time to continue learning and growing as an artist. And you get free GiclĂ©e prints!
