- 78 ARTISTS CONFIRMED! -
This project is bringing together 78 artists from around the world, to collaborate on a dark art tarot deck of cards.
The artists are each bringing their own unique style and interpretation to their chosen card, representing themselves and their passion within this one of a kind project.
The decks of cards will ONLY be available through this kick starter campaign, these decks are Limited Edition, not available anywhere else, at any other time.

FOURTH ROUND OF ARTWORKS RELEASED SOON!
The funding goal is set to produce and distribute the decks of cards and the rewards. Upon successful funding, each artist will receive a deck of cards, and an equal share in any profits raised after production, distribution and kick starter fees are taken out. As this is not a big money maker, the artists are essentially creating their works for the passion of it, to be apart of this extraordinary project, to bring this dream to life, and to work alongside each other to create something unique.
This format of the Tarot deck is based on the traditional tarot of Major arcana and Lesser arcana, inclusive of the 4 houses. Each card within the deck is created by a particular artist, chosen earlier this year because of their talent and enthusiasm.
The artist name and card name will be overlayed on the card front. Cards will be 120mm x 70mm with rounded corners, high dpi and printed on 420gsm Hi Bulk Artboard. They will have a Matt Cello finish and Spot UV Gloss effect for the card back. All Cards will be shrink wrapped in sets and delivered in a custom designed tuck box.
The art work is rolling in! Currently we have received 26/78 pieces, the artists are working on their cards as we speak! Deadline for the artists is one month from the project finish, there is only a one week turn around on manufacture of the product and rewards, so get ready to have these bad boys shipped to you in the very immediate future!
Risks and challenges
1. The main risk I would like to address here is quite an obvious one, "What if one or more of the artists are unable to continue with the project?".
The measure we have in place for this is a backlog of replacement artists who are on a waiting list and willing to step up in case of such an event.
2. Manufacturer issues. Although I have complete and utter faith in our chosen manufacturer and the reward producers, sometimes bad things happen, and so we have sourced backup manufacturers who have the same turn around with production, just in case of any misfortunes.
3. Time for Artists to complete and submit their pieces. This is probably the most dynamic variable in the project, organizing and relying on 78 people is a challenge in itself. But, if at all any issue, a slight delay in production 'may' occur. As previously mentioned, there are back up artists if things get a little too out of hand, but for the most part, the artists in this project were selected due to their enthusiasm to make this project come to life.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
