The fourth 78Tarot project launched Tuesday evening on Kickstarter… and is already over 80% funded! :)
I’ve been involved with this project since the beginning (2014), when a group of fantasy artists on Facebook decided to publish a limited edition Tarot deck. Each person was assigned one card to create in our own style. We had very little direction with that initial deck, but later decks have all had themes: Nautical, Carnival, and this year’s 78Tarot Astral. Cats in spaaaaace, baby!
With a nod to the popularity of alien felines, the four participating cat artists were each given a Page card (mine was Page of Swords)… so we joked about being #TeamCat! We seriously think a Cat-themed Tarot deck should be next. Right??
I can officially release my card to everyone, so here is the Page of Swords:
There are several levels available for Reward Tiers, from just the deck & its accompanying booklet, to an “Intergalactic” trilogy of decks (Nautical, Carnival, and Astral) with companion hardcover art books. One of the most popular Rewards is the Artists’ Mystery $75 Tier – which includes a “grab bag” of merchandise and prints from participating artists, as well as a copy of the deck & its booklet. These are a limited offering, and as I type this, there are only 15 Mystery Boxes (out of 100) left! I will be donating items for the boxes, but I cannot guarantee that my items will be in ALL the boxes. Rest assured, there is some really cool stuff being shipped along with the decks, especially if we reach our stretch goals! :)
( Note: I am not personally managing this Kickstarter campaign. I am one of the artists who contributed to the deck. Any Kickstarter or project questions should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org )
On an interesting side note, my Page of Swords isn’t the first time I painted a cheetah wielding a sword. Back in 2011, I created a piece titled “Warrior Maiden Cheetah”. Check out the comparison! :)
The Rabbit Hole Artist Collective’s show, “Fairies & Fairytales”, is coming up this month, on April 24th. This is an online Facebook auction, which opens at 2pm EST on The Rabbit Hole’s Facebook page. I will be painting Beauty and the Beast for this auction. (Pssst, a DOG will be making an appearance in this painting!)
I am filming a time lapse video for my Patreon subscribers, as well as posting exclusive sneak peeks for them, but I can tease you with this:
I also have three local shows/festivals coming up:
You can find my current show schedule here on my Events page. This list will be updated throughout the year as I submit applications and receive confirmations.
Thank you for your support! =^,,^=

Sans realized that the printer was exposed without its cover, so he graciously loaned his fur coat to keep it warm. 😐🐈#somuchfur #studiocat http://ift.tt/2xMk5TI

Annually since 1974, the Apple Butter Festival fills the park and streets of downtown Berkeley Springs on Saturday and Sunday of Columbus Day weekend in October.
The traditional harvest festival is kicked off by a nostalgic hometown parade on Saturday morning followed by two days worth of family-friendly games and contests, music, country food, fine arts and local crafts. Undisputed star of the festival is the spicy apple butter stirred in giant copper kettles in the middle of the square.
With no admission fee and activities for all ages, this is the perfect day or weekend experience for everyone from grandma to the kids.
