Hello all :)

I'm back and stronger than ever. Surgery was swift, the doctor told me I healed up faster than anyone she's seen in 15 years, my quality of life skyrocketed in ways I didn't even realize, and everything is -awesome-. Nothing beats being pain free after a 22 year wait!

Except my scanner and my tablet. Those are being evil bastards right now, but I'm working on it. Once I get it going right, productivity will skyrocket.

On the queue: 

-Rubara is almost finished. It has a few chapters left to be laid out, and then the art will start flowing again for that.

-The Kitsune Tarot has Major Arcana, all Pentacles-suit and all Wands-suit completed (except King of Wands). Considering the scanner/tablet issues, this project has been delayed. (Not for lack of trying while on surgery recovery though!)
I will be looking for a publisher once I am done with it. It was designed on 6 x 9" cardstock and is designed to be a little smaller than standard tarot cards (for more functionality/portability)

-I am also working with Mardusion, and getting more of it written out of my head and preparing it for page layout. While I'm doing this, I'm getting some additional thoughts on Intirri, so I'm adding that into said worldbook while at it.

Thank you all for the wellwishes! <3

I am going on hiatus until mid-April. In a few days I'm undergoing surgery (and accepting donations to help afford it!), so I will be able to reply and be online some time beginning next week if all goes well.

:heart: Thank you for your understanding.

In May I received a dream career job and I've been working full time. To make that busier, I was also doing the following-
-writing lessons for my students (I teach)
-helping three friends set up their business
-working on commissions to help pay the bills
-still working on the Kitsune Tarot
-making candles and perfume to sell to bring in more income
-was sick from August through til November and I'm just now getting better
-sold a few of my leftover belongings to pay the medical bills 

Needless to say I am also looking at a $3,800 deductible fee for surgery in 2015 (total cost around $8,000 and a month or two of recovery time)... sometime in May. My new insurance will drop in February and said they'd cover me. I sure hope that's true 'cause the insurance I'm on now (which is more expensive) doesn't, and had lied to me about it. I can no longer put it off as I have for the past 22 years as I am experiencing continual pain from it which is affecting my ability to work.

I AM ACCEPTING DONATIONS IF YOU LIKE MY WORK! Please feel welcome to send me a note and I will send my PayPal address. 

Thank you so much. {hugs} It has been an incredible journey and stay here.

You did some kitsune tarot way back when. Can the deck be bought?

Hello!

As of right now, I'm still hunting around for a publisher since my first offer fell through and I've not yet heard back from the second publisher I found. I definitely hope to have it be sold as soon as it's done! (Right now, the Major Arcana is done, the Earth suit as well, and 4 cards left to go on the Fire suit- then Water/Air and it'll be done.) Thanks so much ^^

It's no problem at all. I very seriously would like to buy a set. :)  Keep us updated!

^^ I will definitely do so. At this point, the encouragement is what's keeping me going!! :) I've never done such a huge series of images before so it's definitely a challenge.

 

I also plan on making 'edited' card versions later, like a booster pack, for sale for those who want to replace some cards with updated imagery if it calls to them more than the default card images.
