The Tarot Deck

Drumroll, please….tarot 03

I’ve created a tarot deck! This was actually a custom project for a man in New York, who over the course of the year waited patiently while I slowly worked on this project – something I’ve wanted to do for ages, but finally was asked to, so I couldn’t put it off any longer! This is a 22-card deck, of the Major Arcana.

Painted on watercolor paper with Windsor & Newton Inks and watercolor paint, backed with thin, thin sheets of wood and painted with gold detailing on the backs and edges.

I tried not to cling too tightly to the symbolism of classic decks, though did pick and choose some odds and ends that I do like.

I am super proud of this deck and sadly sent it off in the mail just a few days ago. I plan on creating a reproduction deck, if only to have one for myself, but possibly to sell, too. ūüôā

20waystotell 13-18Things are busy on the home front, getting ready for holiday shows¬†and trying to squeeze in time¬†for making new art. I’m so terrible at this blogging thing, neglecting it for such long stretches! I thought I’d post these little illustrations I did¬†several months back for a women’s lifestyle blog. They were quick and¬†fun, and¬†were designed to help illustrate little blurbs about how to apply makeup, how to¬†tell if someone’s into you, and how to keep things¬†interesting in the bedroom. You know,¬†rather standard lifestyle article stuff. But they were fun and¬†I used it as an exercise in colors and patterns. Enjoy!¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† 20waystotell 02 20waystotell 03-6¬† 20waystotell 13-18 20waystotell 13-18 20waystotell 19-20 20waystotell 19-20 20waystotell all 20sm

T-shirts and Tote bags galore!

I need to apologize in advance for the ridiculous number of pictures to follow. I got these shirts and tote bags back from the printers a couple of days ago, and this morning the sun came out just long enough for us to take some pictures! I’ve hired¬†Nicholas (part time model)¬†to help me out with these:

Percolating silkscreened unisex tee in soft cream and burnt orange. Coffee, coffee, coffee!

Kitty Heaven tee in leaf green, and below in teal.

In girls’ sizes, turquoise and white scoop tees.

This time around I thought we’d print up some flowy racerback tanks, in pebble and white.

Last but not least, there are finally tote bags! For all your book, food and knicknack-haulin’ needs!

In “Moth Girl,” “Percolating,” and “Kitty Heaven.”

So, stocking up for holidy craft shows! If you’re still with me after that exhausting lineup of photos, here’s the holiday art show & craft fair schedule!

 

The 2013 Calendar is here! + a DIY set of monthly calandar blanks for you crafty people, you!

Whoo! I am in full-construction mode piecing together this year’s cute girl calendar, and here it is! They’re now up in the etsy shop, here, and of course will be with me at all the upcoming holiday craft shows in the next couple of months. I say this all the time, but I cannot believe how fast this year is flying by, and the holidays are just around the corner, along with all the cookie-making, mulled-wine, random gift-giving, and happy hibernation.

Every year when I make calendars, I scour the internet to see if I can find some simple, pretty monthly calendar blanks that I can download and use, never with much luck. Most free calendar blanks are kind of ugly, or not proportionate for my use, and I end up drawing my own out with my little brush and ink. This time I decided to whip some up in Photoshop, keep it simple, and share it with you guys, so you can make your own!

This is what they look like, all just in black and white, for you to color as you please. Also, there are no holidays, so you can add or ignore whichever ones you fancy.

Here is the download: 12 separate .jpgs.

2013 blank calendar months for you

Enjoy! I’d love to see what you guys can make with these.
