Sightings of astro symbols
This page will list uses of my astro symbols by people who aren't me. If
you're doing something with any of my new astro
symbols, please let me know! (There's no requirement to do so but I'd
love to hear about it.)
Dan Edwards is working on a picture book
as part of a large art project based
on the tarot deck. Symbols of various
kinds appear throughout, including this title page which includes many of
Jonathan Hull has drawn
his own renderings of the planetary and dwarf-planetary symbols,
including my Haumea and Makemake symbols.
Wyrmshadow has created
fictional governments of planets, moons, and other objects in our solar
system. He used some of my moon symbols and
Megan Lara used the symbols for Perseus and Pegasus in her Medusa Nouveau piece.
Winchell Chung used the symbol for Deimos in his insignia for a fictional NASA mission.
Andrew had the symbol for
Chamaeleon inked on his arm while living in
Connecticut. I randomly came across him in my town of Somerville, MA
(near where he lives now) and recognized my art on his arm. (!!!)
Polina Schadauer-Povarich wrote from
London to tell me she had the symbol for
Volans as a tattoo.
The television series Lost Girl used my moon symbols
as mystical symbols in episode 8 of season 3, "Fae-ge Against The Machine".
They appear on the faceplate of a testing machine, on a magical prescription
pad, and on banners in a faerie shantytown.
AggManUK has made a series
of videos about the planets and moons of the solar system,
and used my symbols on the title pages for the moons.
These symbols have entered widespread use in two fandom communities I know of.
They're sufficiently widespread that there's no real way to include sample
images, so I have included instructions on how to search for them elsewhere.
The manga/anime series Sailor Moon features magical girls ("Sailor Scouts")
based on the 9 planets who wear their planet's symbol as an emblem.
As new dwarf planets have been discovered, fans have invented new sailor
scouts based on them and some have used my TNO symbols
in fan-art. To find some of these, search for "Sailor Haumea" or similar.
The webcomic Homestuck features 12 characters known as trolls who are based
on the 12 signs of the zodiac and wear their sign's symbol on their shirt.
Fantrolls are trolls invented by fans, some of which wear
my symbols for other constellations.
To find some of these, search for "fantroll Ursa Minor" or similar.
