“I don’t put a lot of stock into such things personally…”
Terri Lloyd

I’m a Gemini.  My husband is a Virgo, and my son is Leo.  My mother is an Aquarius while my father is a Capricorn, like his mother Emma.  My great aunt Magdalene was a Cancer. She read our horoscopes to us at the breakfast table just after riotously laughing at the B.C. comic strip — the comic & predictive located on the same page.  I could always find myself in the predictions for every sign.  It was either childhood narcissism or an early indicator an eventual empathetic nature.  Regardless, I never put much faith in the accuracy of astrological signs, but I know many, many people try very hard to fulfill expectations that make us appear inculpable in our own journey.  

Today’s AAAD Artist of the Day Terri Lloyd, has completed a series, As Above, So Below that revolves around the signs of the zodiac.  The third sentence of the press release began, “I’d don’t put a lot of stock in such things personally”.  It seems perfectly in line with that dark wit & humor for which her work is known.  I love this series so much.  I appreciate that she incorporates mudras as a sort of universal language, and just like my childhood, I could identify with every sign more than the last.  It was hard for me to choose an image to feature.  I finally chose Aquarius because it suited my perspective today.  But they are all fantastic.  Please take the time to pass an eye over each one.

FYI, all of the links to Lloyd’s work, on this page, will lead you to her Hatchfund campaign for As Above, So Below.”  This campaign will allow Terri to print & frame all 26 large-scale images to show at the StARTup Art Fair in 2018.  You don’t have to donate to look at or appreciate the images (click on updates), but every $5 helps another artist fund her opportunity.  You’ve been there, just steps away from grabbing what you want. Here’s your opportunity to help her grab just such an opportunity, and it offers rewards to boot.  She has to get to 50% funding in just a few days; after that, she has a benefactor with matching funds.  I encourage you to put yourself in her shoes & lend a hand.

Check out the full series from AAAD Artist of the Day, Terri Lloyd.
