Update #3

The Happy Dance

2 comments

I'm doing a little jig over here as I juggle felines. The cats are terribly unhappy about this but they're pretty used to such annoyances from me. I am officially half way to my goal with still a little over half way of my time left. Thank you so much!  This is why I'm attempting a two step and throwing cats about.

I've updated my information a little to include the site I've created for the Black Ibis, that can be found here. Evelyn Kriete was kind enough to make me a better video for my project page, which I will be uploading soon. In the mean time you can take a peek at it here.

Now that I have backers for the book option I can't edit it, but I wanted to include that the book will also come with a little grab bag of small prints and things.

I shall put the cats down (bet you couldn't tell I was juggling them this whole time could you?) and get back to work. Below are a few more cards in the deck. Book artwork to come. I hope you each have a wonderful evening.

The Wheel of Fortune card. The character is the Gray Dancer.

      I am so glad to have found this lovely project! My picture here on kickstarter represents my 'tag' as I leave it in nightclubs - though not done in microsoft paint. I usually leave the date as well. I could not for the life of me find anywhere else to send you a message about this. Thanks! t wait to buy the book, too.

    Your name & doodle will be apart of the "wall art graffiti" at the back of the first issue. You can send me a doodle and your written name or I'll whip something up for you. The artwork wall is basically blank at present, the scenario is one of those rooms somewhere in a club where everyone who has drifted through there has left their mark. In my fictional cabaret, you'll have all apparently found your way into the secret London and left your mark there. This artwork is at the back of the first book.

    I'll illustrate you into the final scene of the last book. At the end of my story the Black Ibis (who is the mythical creature the story is centered around) is quite possibly found. The final cabaret scene is a mural of people I admire, my friends, a few among my family, and if you can see yourself in a turn of the century, purely dark fantasy, neovictorian type cabaret audience, so can you ;)

    An original 16x20 inch mounted canvas giclee of one of the major arcana cards. *The major arcana tarot cards are mostly digital paintings. To create an original piece from the digital composition the piece is printed on canvas giclee paper with archival acrylic inks. I mount this canvas and continue to paint and add beading, metal leafing and things of that nature to make the painting the final and only version of that image.
