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.)

Books

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 my symbols.

Design

Jonathan Hull has drawn his own renderings of the planetary and dwarf-planetary symbols, including my Haumea and Makemake symbols.

Flags

Wyrmshadow has created flags for fictional governments of planets, moons, and other objects in our solar system. He used some of my moon symbols and TNO symbols.

Illustration

Megan Lara used the symbols for Perseus and Pegasus in her Medusa Nouveau piece.

Insignia

Winchell Chung used the symbol for Deimos in his insignia for a fictional NASA mission.

Tattoos

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.

Television

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.

Videos

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.

Fandoms

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.

Sailor Moon

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.

Homestuck

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.
