Lydia Burris

The Madwoman

Focused on intense emotions, worlds beyond, ambiguity and automatic explorations.

Always aim to Create Daily!

Raise each other up.

~~ Reach further than you think you can go, and you will go further than you would have gone. ~~

Some real life data on Lydia:
Real life, what's that? I make art. I teach. I travel to vend my stuff. What else do you want to know? Feel free to ask.
(updated Jan 2017)

Current obsessions:
podcasts. finding that spark again (It seems to have gone missing briefly).
(updated Jan 2017)

Patreon: -- (get crazy mail and arty letters delivered right to your mailbox)
Yes I realize that entry title doesn't really make the best of sense, but neither does my art, so neener neener neener! 

(I'm 38 and I teach college, yet I revert back into a 10 year old when I get on dA.) Misha/Castiel Tongue ~ free to use! 

SO. EVERYTIME I VEND people always ask me 'do you have an online shop?' ... I hem and haw and say... well, sorta. 
I have an etsy, but I rarely upload, and when I do... I forget to advertise, so my upload fees go to waste. :/
(I hate it when that happens!) 

BUT THIS TIME Its gonna be different I swear. See? I'm already here telling you fine folks about my fine wares. 

HERE ----> The ART IS HERE ---> (at least go take a gander yeah? Let me know what you think? Suggestions? Advice? Requests?)

So yeah. I've uploaded new and old works that I currently have available. I have prints, originals, tiny original trading cards, bottles, a brain candy book, etc. 
(Bottles? I've never uploaded my bottles to dA! I'll have to put one on.) 
AND I'll be uploading more as the holidays loom ever closer. *cue doomy music* 
I even spent hours resizing photos so each of my items can be fully seen in the preview screen. Artist life yo!

If you happen to be in Indianapolis on December 7th, my studio building is having a big holiday openhouse and my studio (A-250) will be open! 
Here's a link with more info:…
  • Listening to: my brain sliding out of my ears
  • Eating: a free cookie someone gave me yesterday
  • Drinking: day old coffee

Hey thanks for the watch! Also I am almost finished with that other olive illustration!! I've been almost done with it for a whole week and haven't had a chance to work on it. It's been killing me!!

Hi there, I'm the person that stopped by during GenCon to talk a bit. Bummed out that I was unable to get away from my table most of the weekend to come back and buy magnets :( But it was great meeting you and I'll have to try to catch you at another con next year if I wind up working any of the same places
zyphryus Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2012
Oh cool!!! Glad you were able to stop by!!
Did you have a good GenCon?

Too bad you didn't get to come back, but busy is good?

Hope I wasn't too busy when you stopped by. It was extra busy this year so I didn't get to chat as much to some people either but, busy was definitely a good thing on my end. :)
Take care!!
