Two Magnificent Projects by Echo Chernik!

Choose one or both of these projects as your rewards for helping publish them.

All of the artwork is completely finished, we now need your support in publishing them!  As your reward for making this happen, you will receive SIGNED advance copies before anyone else plus additional goodies.

UPDATE!  Do you want to know how this deck is to color? Check out some of the fan reviews! Click Here!

UPDATE! Echo will create a KICKSTARTER ONLY Magician Card.  In addition to the full tarot deck, you will also receive an alternate magician card, which you can only get through Kickstarter.

In 2006, Echo was hired by a major publisher to create a Color Your Own Tarot Deck. They licensed the right to publish it once - and then the copyrights reverted back to Echo. The art has been lost in the studio for many years, and the original deck is out of print. We need your help to bring this beautiful gem back to life!

As you can see, it is beautiful deck and definitely worthy of a reprint.

The Tarot Deck will be in a lovely box. The more funds received, the better the box will be with exotic details like embossing and foil stamping. Fans of the original deck call it "easy to color" and "beautifully illustrated". We are excited to see this deck come back to life, but need your help!

The Folio of 12 Artworks ("Coloring Book")

Goddesses of Cuisine
Goddesses of Cuisine

In 2012, Echo completed one of her master compilations - the Goddesses of Cuisine. Each international goddess stood over 6 feet tall and represents a different category of cuisine: Tea, Coffee, Cheese, Pasta, Spices, Herbs, Bread, Rice, Fruit, Vegetables, Seafood, and Meat. The detail is impeccable.

To create this project, Echo is working with Emma Garside. Emma is an artist, a prize-winning colorist, and has her degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University in England. She specializes in geometric designs, knot work, and fractal art.  

By popular demand, we would love to print these works (plus bonus designs) to be colored by adults (or young artists-to-be!!). These incredible works of art will be provided as one sided loose leaf coloring pages on art paper in a gorgeous full-color portfolio.

For only $20, you may receive all 12 images on fine art paper.

We chose the folio option as opposed to a bound book for a few reasons:
Images are easy to frame. They are perfect for left handed artists - who normally run into trouble with the spine of a book. Additional prints can easily be added. The folio will store your artwork safely. The prints are one sided.

REWARDS

In order to produce both projects, we are offering rewards to backers that include signed copies of finished products and some juicy extras that only Kickstarter backers are eligible for. When backing, you may choose to receive Folios, Decks, prints of Echo's original art, and other great add-ons as we imagine them (depending on demand).

Including:

• Color Your Own Tarot Decks valued at $20

• Coloring Folios value at $20

• Fine Art Prints valued at $20

• Original Drawings by the Artist Echo Chernik

   (^Original Drawings are already drawn. There is no customization.)

• Custom Tarot Cards featuring your face (or a loved one)

   (^Provide a photo and the artist (Echo Chernik) will draw that face on a tarot card.)

STRETCH GOALS

We intend to only produce the best quality products for Echo's fans and collectors - but there are some dreams we have for the finished works.

If we reach...

• UNLOCKED! $8,000 every Folio backer receives larger Folio images that will be at least 14" tall.

• UNLOCKED $9,000, every Folio Backer receives at least three (3) free artworks to color by Emma Garside for a total of 15.

Fuchsia by Emma Garside

• UNLOCKED $10,000 every Tarot backer receives a higher quality box with foil stamping! 

Proposed Standard Tarot Box

This design is what we are getting quotes on. It may change significantly before publication.

• UNLOCKED $12,000 every Folio will contain 18 images instead of 12.

• At $18,000 every Tarot Deck will come with a booklet on how to read the cards.

Future stretch goals may include Kickstarter Only cards, Kickstarter Only Boxes, or Coloring Pages of Echo's Dessert Cthulhu Series.

About Echo Chernik

Echo Chernik is a renowned artist who has graced countless products, books, magazines, and posters. My name is Lazarus, and Echo is my studio partner and wife.

Over the past few years, we have successfully run and funded many Kickstarter campaigns, including three books, two calendars, and four incredible Kickstarter-only art projects.

Among her famous works are a series of Kickstarter-only works of art featuring woman with wings inspired by different birds: Swan, Raven, Crane, and most recently Falcon.

Details

Echo has teamed up with artist Emma Garside to reproduce her stunning artwork in a coloring-ready format. 

For instance, Echo's finished Goddess of Tea:

And Emma's Coloring-Ready line-art:

Among the other works of art to be included in the Coloring Folio are: Echo's Wine Dryad, Chocolate, and a variety of Emma Garside's exquisite designs.

Great Gifts!

The artwork is completed on both projects - we just need your help producing them. That means that they will ship just as quickly as they get back from the printers! It also allows Echo more time to do some really special custom rewards. We have received many requests for the tarot to come back to life - and need your help to make it happen! Thank you!

Risks and challenges

Echo and I have successfully managed, funded, and delivered on 10 or so Kickstarter projects so far. We know exactly how to produce the decks and folios and reward our backers for their contributions.
We need approximately $8,000 for the decks ($3-$6 each for 1,000-3,000) and another $4.000 for the folios - plus shipping and handling. This means that we are only asking for about 75% of the actual costs needed. We have the other 25% ourselves.
