Thank you SO MUCH for supporting our project! Your support has been truly inspirational.
For those of you that may have missed the chance to back us during the Kickstarter, fear not! Once production is underway we will be updating the links below to send you to our shop. Many of our products will be available for purchase.
If the link doesn't work yet, don't worry, just keep checking back. We have a lot to do for our backers before we can switch modes.
Having illustrated for Magic: the Gathering for over 20 years, Terese is one the most popular and beloved artists to ever illustrate for the game. With over 200 cards to her credit, she is also one of its most prolific.
While illustrating for Magic has been a rewarding experience, Terese has always wanted to experiment with new materials, media, and techniques that expand well beyond the world of Magic.
The Tokens of Spirit project is the realization of this desire, for Terese to explore and expand her artistic horizons while creating some of the most beautiful and engaging Tokens and Playmats the world has ever seen.
In partnership with the team at Original Magic Art, Terese has designed a collection of rewards that are functional, memorable, and beautiful.
Explore the page below and help turn her vision into reality.
Bring a bit of Terese with you to the battlefield with these Tokens of Spirit.
All tokens will be printed on high-quality 300 gsm blue core card stock. After sampling multiple paper weights, finishes, and suppliers, we are really proud of the quality of these tokens.
The project is launching with 36 of the most popular tokens, packaged in a custom, and extremely sturdy, two-part rigid box. Each Token Set will have 1 of each token. With your support, we can include even more tokens, which will be automatically added to the sets.
As new Tokens are unlocked via Stretch Goals, they will be added to the image below.
Since not all art will be completed when the Kick starter project ends, be sure to check out the completed tokens once they're done! The button below will update after the project is over.
Now that tokens have all been unlocked, here's the final count of what you'll get in each set.
For the discerning Token collector, we offer our Premium Foil Tokens.
Printed on high-quality, blue core 300 gsm card stock with an added holographic foil layer, these tokens are absolutely radiant.
Every token unlocked through the project will also be available in Foil.
Thanks to you amazing backers getting us to $250k and unlocking some EPIC stretch goals, all Foil tokens will now be LAYERED foils. What this means is that each token will have parts that are shinier and catch the light, custom to that card. It's hard to illustrate, but if you've seen Foil cards from a certain popular game that these tokens can be used with, you know exactly what we mean. Here's a mockup of how it could look.
Layered Foiling means better contrast for the darker areas and truer color for the midtones. Vianki will process the art for each card selecting both tonal highlights and content highlights (such as swords or gold gilt bits) for the most effective foiling.
In addition to the tokens created for this project, we took some of these amazing images and created custom playmats for you to enjoy. These playmats will be 24x14.
Stunning artwork on quality materials, these playmats bring Terese's artwork to life.
Below are all of the Playmat designs currently available through this project. As new playmat designs are unlocked, this list will expand:
Since not all art will be completed when the Kick starter project ends, the final playmat designs will be voted on by backers once the art is complete. Be sure to check out the completed art and playmat selections once they're done and voted on! The button below will update after the project is over.
Hand printed by Terese on 13" x 19" archival, museum-quality paper, these prints are simply stunning.
Any image unlocked in this Kickstarter can be ordered as a print. Here are a few of Terese's newest works.

Risks and challenges
We are a battle tested team with five successfully delivered projects under our belts. We've run into problems in the past, but we've dealt with each and every one of them, making sure to communicate roadblocks to backers and always delivering the promised rewards.
There are several issues that could arise from additional proofing requirements to customs issues. No matter what comes up, we will let backers know and get everyone their rewards without fail.
If the project does significantly more than our goal *crosses fingers* we will have to work with a fulfillment company to deliver rewards. We've already made arrangements with a very good company and we are confident that we will be able to work with them to delivery everything in a timely and cost effective manner if needed.
Stretch Goals could add additional design, proofing, and production time to our schedule. We have planned a bit of cushion into our delivery date, so hopefully our window will not be compromised. Any delays will be communicated via updates so every backer is made of aware of any changes.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
