Hello, my name is Nakisha VanderHoeven, I’m a full time artist living in Seattle, Washington. I sell my art all over the world on Etsy (as BlueDogRose) and other venues. My art is how I make a living. I am the creator of the Rabbit Tarot, the TaRat, and the BlueDogRose Tarot decks.

I am pleased to share with you my latest deck, the Badgers Forest Tarot. This deck is a labor of love that has taken over three years to create. There are 78 cards in this deck, each one created with my unique, original watercolor art. Though it’s based on  traditional tarot meanings, the suits are wild animal based; the Badgers represent swords, Foxes represent cups, wild Rabbits represent wands, and Crows represent pentacles.

The major arcana includes other wild animals; bears, deer, boars, goats, squirrels, raccoons and more, all set in a mystical woodland setting. This is my first full sized tarot deck , 2.5” x 5” with named and numbered cards and a reversible back. The finished deck will come with a color printed tuck box and basic sheet of card meanings.

I’ve created this kickstarter with the main goal of publishing this deck at an affordable price. I have a USA based printing company that can give me a price break if a large enough quantity is printed, otherwise the deck would have to retail at $65- $75 per deck. If I reach my goal with this Kickstarter I’ll be able to offer this deck for $40 or less, and I hope you will consider supporting me in my efforts.

Postcards of the Artwork

I have put together many thank you rewards for those who choose to support me in my Kickstarter efforts, including the chance to have a copy of the Badgers Forest Tarot before it becomes available for sale. If the dollar amount exceeds my requested amount, I will put those costs into ordering more decks (and hopefully lowering the price) as well as putting into production the third printing of the Rabbit Tarot (which is going sell out in the near future). 

 Thank you for your support!

The original paintings used to make these cards are offered as a reward - The Priestess, The Nine of Foxes, The Eight of Badgers, The Two of Rabbits and The Queen of Crows.

Risks and challenges

I have printed a proof copy of the tarot deck, so I know that the quality and the finished project will be good. The printing time is estimated, as it varies depending on how much work is currently at the printers before my order goes in, but I have worked with this company before and I am confidant that the turn around should be no more than two months. In addition have been shipping artwork for over 20 years and on average I ship 10- 30 orders a week all over the world. I believe in open and honest communication with my customers, and I will do the same with my backers here on Kickstarter. Should any hiccup arise I will be quick to assess the situation and let everyone know.
