Man. It’s like Venus and Mercury are having a very heated debate over this city and all that hot air has settled and sticking. It is a bit on the hot side out there I guess you could say. Or as my neighbor keeps yelling from across the street “HAWT ENOUGH FER UUUU?” He makes me giggle.
This week I’ve been organizing my projects and creating a calendar timeline to keep up with it. I’ve come to learn over time that it’s a must to maintain attention for an older project, like one of my tarot decks, as I try to establish and offer a new project. Given that my income comes in from my online store and various local events, it’s very important to keep attention up for anything I can help add to my monthly take in. But it’s not all about making a buck. I love what I do and my decks and I want them to be seen and liked. My Attic Cartomancy blog is about to take on its first funding project for my new Oracles & Flutter-Byes oracle deck. At the same time I’m getting my older Halloween tarot completed. And my Isidore Tarot has a life of its own. It calls me on the weekends sometimes to tell me who it’s hanging out with. Name dropper. Anyhoo, some new additions to my current projects – both available for the first time or again soon.
Madam Lydia Wilhelmina’s Tarot of Monsters, the Macabre and Autumn Scenes – Originally called The Attic Halloween Tarot – First offered Halloween of 2016 it got a bit of a rush job due to circumstances. I’m adding the minor arcana to it (slowly) to make it a full deck. Hopefully to have a very October-centric sale this autumn.
Oracles & Flutter-Byes – Originally called The Orange Moon Oracle – New deck project using an oracle type theme. Mucha themed artwork that is being digitally collaged into new scenes with airbrushing to add a little of my style to my favorite artist’s work. These are the oracles. The flutter-byes are original paintings of mine featuring moths, butterflies, and dragonflies that are being collaged into similar style scenes as the oracles. Attic Cartomancy will be crowdfunding this one.
