Badgers Forest Tarot

I'm very excited because I just launched my Kickstarter to help get funds for my latest tarot deck, the Badgers Forest Tarot. I've never tried this kind of funding before, so I'm a bit anxious to see if it will work. I really like the idea, and have supported several other creative people using Kickstarter for their projects.

This new tarot is the most detailed and difficult one I've made so far. It also took a long time, as it was a project I kept putting off then going back to. I wanted each painting to really stand out on it's own as a painting, not just an illustration or rendering of an idea. It was also created over a difficult time in my life with many personal changes and challenges.

I really like self publishing these decks, as the control I have over the production and the ability to interact with people buying them.  Ironically my last foster dog was called Badger, so I think that's a good sign.
