So Stretch Goal Three has been met!!!!! There WILL be a piece of art SPECIFICALLY designed for Kickstarter Supporters ONLY!!!!
Hello, I am Elizabeth Leggett. I am a freelance digital artist and fantasy writer with close to twenty years of experience. This collection was my first foray into Tarot and it has been an amazing ride!
Initially, I did not intend to do a full deck of 78 digital paintings. While in the midst of a creative surge I needed a topic. A dear friend asked me if I owned a tarot deck. I said yes, so she suggested I tackle The Fool. On completion of The Fool, she suggested I draw a random card. The result was the Seven of Wands.
Paintings flowed one random card at a time. I expected the creative surge to dissipate. It did not. I continued. A year later the illustrations for the entire deck were complete.
The Portico Tarot Art Print Collection was Born!
(Artists sometimes assume that their vision is completely clear. We need to be reminded that assumption is not a great plan. Here is a list of the cards featured in the video in order of appearance!
TWO OF SWORDS
FIVE OF CUPS
THE HANGED MAN
KING OF WANDS
NINE OF SWORDS
TWO OF CUPS
Why I Created a Kickstarter
One--- These beautiful prints need to be available as a usable tarot deck.
Two--- This deck deserves boxes as decorative and of the same quality as the cards inside.
On July 10 (less than 8 hours after going live) we are...
And less than 3 hours after that, our
STRETCH GOAL ONE WAS ACHIEVED! There WILL be a PDF of the booklet to go with the decks!
Thank you very much!
Risks and challenges
I am researching printing companies for the deck. Once the prints are converted to card format, each printer will create a prototype deck. I will then be able to choose the very best for public distribution of the deck. In the mean time I will write a booklet for inclusion within the deck's box.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
