UPDATE:

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

THE DEVIL

FIVE OF CUPS

HIGH PRIESTESS

THE WORLD

THE HANGED MAN

KING OF WANDS

THE TOWER

THE MOON

NINE OF SWORDS

STRENGTH

HEIROPHANT

TWO OF CUPS

Thank you!!!!)


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...
FUNDED! ~HAPPY!~

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.

    Mahalo! As I mentioned in the description of this project, I did not create these illustrations in traditional tarot order. Because of this, there is a uniqueness in the change of art development that can be seen only if these cards are side by side in the order of creation. I am offering a frame quality poster of the cards in that order! Are you curious? Of course this poster will be numbered and hand signed!

At this level, you will receive all of the cards of a single suit (cups, wands, swords or pentacles) in 12 x 18 sized prints (matte, hand signed.) Normally, they would be $55 a print which would add up to $770. This is a deal that is only being offered on this Kickstarter!
