About

Halloween in August ......      

Are you a zombie fan?  Do you faithfully follow The Walking Dead and Znation? Do you like old Romero films?  Are you interested in the art of Tarot ? Are you already a seasoned reader? If the answer is yes to any or all of these, we have the perfect deck for you. It's called the "Dead Waite". The following charts show the progress so far, with more being illustrated daily. This gives an idea of where we're at in terms of progress.


Our new Tarot combines the best of both worlds. Based on the classic  RWS tarot imagery, This deck of 78 fully illustrated cards is jam packed with the living dead.

Every card has been transformed, with once pristine costumes torn and shredded with bones sticking out and rib cages on display. Angry zombies, wistful zombies, the Dead Waite has a whole host of undead characters.

Do you wonder how your favourite kings and queens, pages and knights would look like in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse? If you're a lover of horror or a survivalist at heart this tarot treat is guaranteed to sate your appetite for gore. We have everything; rotting flesh, zombie animals, bones and missing limbs.

Perfect for Halloween readings or just to freak out your friends, people will wonder where you got this unique ghastly gem crammed with horror galore. If you're a collector of Tarot decks, "The Dead Waite" will definitely add something different and unusual to your existing collection. There aren't too many horror Tarot decks being made nowadays. Grab your deck while you have the chance!!

We are aiming for a Halloween release, but the official release is December. In other words, if we can get the deck printed and sent out by Halloween, we will. Contribute now to make this nightmare a reality and help us reanimate 78 grisly ghouls and ghastly scenes. With your support, it can happen.

The cards will be great for fans of The Walking Dead, Znation, and many of the great zombie movies.

...or perhaps you would like a deck of cards plucked from the zombie apocalypse itself.

The "Apocalyptic Survivor" Dead Waite has been pulled from the ruins of the old world, a little worse for wear*. This is a more beaten form of the original. The great thing about these cards is that the more you use them, the more the “actual” real life wear and tear will help the look of your apocalypse survivor edition cards.

*Please note. These are perfectly new cards. All special effects overlayed on the cards like dried blood, burn marks, dirt and general grubbiness etc, are just that: effects. Rest assured that they are not real! But they sure do look awesome!

EXCLUSIVE TO THE CAMPAIGN

Every deck for this campaign will include two special cards: a "survivor" card (the querent) and "the infected" card (which indicates toxic influences around you).

Now for some details on the cards themselves : 
The card size is 2.75 X 4.75 inches. Standard Tarot size, The cardstock is 330 gsm, and will be printed in Italy. We have used Ludocards in the past and the cards are good quality. Unless things change radically we plan to use them again for this Kickstarter project. The decks will include a tuck box. A LWB will be included.

We were asked what's a good reason to pledge to the campaign. Firstly, if it isn't funded the cards don't happen. It is too expensive nowadays to use print on demand for customers. There's just no money to be made with print on demand. The cost to customers is also too high. 

The rewards all include shipping. Any customers who have participated in our previous Kickstarter /indiegogo campaigns can attest to the shipping cost not being cheap, when shipping from the UK to the US/Canada etc. We do not get Priority shipping deals. Allof our Kickstarter campaigns include shipping. 

Another reason to back our work is that the images are all high quality, hand drawn art. It takes a lot of time to draw, especially if you're trying to recreate the look of a certain deck. This is NOT clip art.  We are also known for our daring themes and designs. This may be your ONLY CHANCE to get a zombified version of the RWS images. I don't see too many zombie Tarots decks out there, especially hand drawn ones and certainly no RWS zombie decks. Grab one while you can!

All decks are signed by the artist

Risks and challenges

I have been illustrating Tarot decks for 10 years.
I've run two successful crowdfunding campaigns - The Twisted Tarot Tales and Spooky cats / Kiddy Cats tarot.
I also have, in my credits , "A King's Journey Tarot" and "Simply Deep Tarot" published by Schiffer.
My track record for customer satisfaction and service is great.
You can trust that I will deliver the rewards as promised.

While the illustrations are not complete and are still being drawn every day, I do not foresee anything major getting in the way of producing these decks and sending them out.
