Hand of Sauron is screen printed collection that draws on metal aesthetic, mythical elements from Middle Earth, and occult symbolism.
About this project
Hand of Sauron is the brainchild born from my deep love for Middle earth, urban art, and adoration of gnarly metal band aesthetic. And what is more metal than fiery monsters, wraith kings and a sinister demi god throwing devil horns? Join me as we explore this epic fantasy series through this androgynous punk series. But in order to do that, I need your help.
Each piece will be limited edition of (40) pieces each (40 hoodies, 80 shirts total) and (72) pieces for the bandana, and they will never be printed again. Each reward tier helps to cover the costs of apparel blanks, printing, and shipping costs. Revenue generated from the sales of this series outside kickstarter will help cover the costs to produce the Hand of Sauron EP later this year.
100% jersey cotton Bella + Canvas, model color Silver. Printed with water based ink. Unisex sizes S-XL.
20×20 inches. Printed on 100% cotton with locked edges to prevent fraying.
Features (3) different 1.5 inch metallic finished buttons and (2) vinyl stickers.
Measuring 12×18 inches, these will be screen printed on high quality printer paper, such as Rives BFK. Paper color is subject to change based on availability.
This would be my third apparel collection. I will be working with The Make House to assist in all of apparel printing while using two other companies to produce buttons and stickers separately. All of these companies I have used before with great success.
Barring any hang ups, apparel and swag should be completed within 3-4 weeks upon the funding of this project with the aim of having all shipments to backers by the end of October 2016.

About Dancing Heron Illustration
The Dancing Heron brand is where I can explore ancient motifs through illustration and androgynous punk apparel design. I have always been fascinated in the juxtaposition of ancient and modern aesthetic as a way to recreate magical realism through the manipulation of imagery rather than words.
