There I was sitting at home hand-sewing a couture item for myself (to be mentioned in a future post), when...wham! bam! thank-you ma'am!...I received this email from a heavy metal band in Geneva, Switzerland.

Yeah, this is a True Story.
They're called Promethee (that's Prometheus pronounced and spelled in French, ya'all). They wanted to purchase one of my mandala drawings, Day 203 to be precise, for promotional use with their band. Yep. Mathieu, the bass player, said they had stumbled upon my Mandala-a-Day blog and really liked my work. Uh-huh.
It wasn't for sale, since it was contained in a sketch book as part of a series I did every day for a year. So after some back and forth correspondence in which I thanked them for not just ripping it off the web, I ended up sending them a higher resolution jpg of the image. Mathieu asked me to also write their band name (PRMT) in my own script, separately, so they could include it underneath the mandala. 1,000 are going to be made as promotional give-aways when the band plays next. hee hee hee
So dudes, here they are playing a little something, something...
Well alrighty then.
