I made this tarot deck on a blind wave of inspiration. I didn't set out to find anything, and I wasn't sure I would actually draw all 78 cards of the deck—but I just got excited and kept going. I was drawing so fast it took no time to realize that there were messages behind the images.

I've always been a little bit of a tomboy and struggled to find the right female-identifying role models. I want to feel empowered not because of my looks, but because of my abilities and personality. Since becoming a mother 4 years ago, I've become more aware of the sheer strength and resiliency of femininity around me everywhere. I'm trying to rewrite the word "feminine" for myself so it doesn't mean passive or weak, but strong and empowered.

The characters in this deck blend the boundaries between gender, sex, family, friendship, shape and size. I love the beauty in our differences and I want people to use this deck to explore the love they can find in themselves. 

REACH GOALS

15k - a sticker sheet (the 4 aces and lots of all-seeing eyes)

20k - small spell cards (the image of each ace on the front with a recommendation for how to channel that cards power on the back)

25k - enamel pins (totally have to be eyes)

Risks and challenges

Since all the artwork for this deck is complete, the last steps will be sending the images to the printer and having the decks printed. I've got to raise $5000 to meet the minimum the printer requires to print these tarot decks and complete the project. The more money raised, the more decks printed.

Thank you all so much for your support!
