Vide cor Meum . . .
From the very beginning it captured my undivided attention: a show that seemed designed to inspire artists, each episode a work of art itself--dark, delicious, disturbing art. Like so many I was dismayed when the show ended--but my inspiration didn't.
This show is tailor-made to fit the symbology of the Tarot; the more I thought about it, the more the characters and imagery seemed to fit with the classic interpretations for each card. I was drawn in and consumed for months with creating the style of the deck, at once my own art style melded with that of the show I love. As the deck has progressed, what began as a little personal project has grown as I've started getting messages from Fannibals all over the web, asking if I plan to produce these cards. So, here I am, offering them to my fellow Fannibals: let's put on our flower crowns and tell our stories through the art of Tarot. These cards will not be mass-produced or widely available; this may be your only chance to get a deck.

Risks and challenges
Fulfillment may prove a daunting task: depending on how many people want a deck, my little Silver Lake apartment might go from cat haven to 24/7 packing station! Though the cards themselves are done and the booklet will be ready to go to the printers in the next week; assembling and shipping every reward might necessitate hiring a few helpers. Whatever it takes, I'm in this for the long haul; this is a true labor of love for me.
