I’m privileged to know a lot of fantastic artists of all kinds — actors, singers, musicians, dancers, writers, fine and graphic artists — and I like to support them however I can.

Two of those artists have taken to Patreon to support themselves as working artists. For those unfamiliar with the site, it’s a crowdfunding resource for artists. People can offer to contribute money on a monthly basis to an artist, and in exchange the artist provides supporters with various perks based on their contribution level.

The first artist I want to draw (see what I did there?) your attention to his my friend Marrus, with whom I’ve collaborated on the Demon Fae patches. I’ve been a fan of hers for years and I’m happy to call her a friend as well as an occasional partner in art.

The other artist I’m spotlighting is Patricia Lupien, who does the artwork for my husband’s novels. She just started up her Patreon page a few weeks ago and it’s in its early stages, but I expect to see a lot of cool stuff coming out of it in the weeks and months ahead.

In addition to their Patreon pages, they both sell their wares online, so go check them out and buy yourself some awesome art!

Last year we unveiled the first is a new series of patches created in collaboration with New Orleans-based artist Marrus, featuring her Demon Fae characters. Today we unveil the next in the series!

rockabyeallRock-a-Bye, featuring a Demon Fae lying upon a twisted tree branch, is based on original artwork by Marrus, and our embroidered interpretation is 100-percent Marrus approved! At 6.25 inches in diameter, this is no mere patch; this is a work of art suitable for framing and displaying in your home or office (although you can of course put it on the back of a jacket and really catch everyone’s attention).

The Demon Fae – Rock-a-Bye patch is available through our web store for $36 plus shipping, and is available with six different background colors: red, orange, light blue, teal, purple, and light gray.

demonfaeclaspkneed1DemonFae are vain, mischievous, sneaky, irreverent, and cause no end of distraction. Lucky for them, they’re adorable, or they’d be getting hit with flyswatters!
 
This design is the result of two artisans’ visions. Veronica of Storied Threads has teamed up with New Orleans based artist Marrus – a shenanigan-inciter whose metaphorical, whimsical paintings are collected all over the world.
This piece is made using the same construction techniques as our other patches, so feel free to stitch it onto a bag or a jacket if you like. However, it truly is a work of art, suitable of framing and hanging on the wall alongside your other Marrus prints!

demonfaeclaspkneed2This is a patch that has been nine months in the making, according to the time stamp on the first e-mail exchanges between Marrus and I. It seemed as though whenever I had the time to work on it, Marrus was crazy busy with shows and work and life. And when Marrus had time, I was the one with a million things going on! But finally, the first of the DemonFae patches is ready! And hopefully the next ones will be much quicker to appear, now that we’ve got a better sense of what needs to be done to let Marrus’s amazing art be transformed into amazing embroidery.

This patch can be purchased in my Etsy shop, and on my website. I will also — I hope! — have a few available for purchase at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire, which opens this weekend.
