Happy Gregorian New Year everyone,

I hope all is well on each of your journeys. Today, I wanted to offer both an update & opportunity for those who resonate with my art. 

To begin, I shall provide an update on developments. Very soon, I will be conducting a Survey to best gauge how & where to present my art as it develops this year. To connect & understand what's best to concentrate on will allow for quality over quantity as many moon's shall pass. Every submission will receive a discount code for the Waking Canvas shop & also be entered to win a FREE Tarot Deck.

As of now, I have heard that the boxes are all set & when they arrive, I will begin assembling all 450+ packages by hand to fulfill everyone's much-anticipated rewards. With this, I am still aiming to have everything out into the world within January. This leads me to my second offering, a timed co-creative Opportunity...

With the delay of Shadow Light Tarot & a recent ankle injury, this threw some interesting challenges along my journey. In the forefront is the balance to be able to support my family by covering expenses (like food & medical bills) while also reserving the funds set aside for shipping all rewards. To solve this, I am proposing a creative solution utilizing the skill set I have been blessed to bring into the world. 

I am offering custom commissioned illustrations for a flat rate of $75 in the style featured throughout this update. The last few weeks, I have been hard at work exploring many of these illustrations & I would love to express into creation your heart's desire through my illustrative style. I find this is a perfect experience to provide myself & those who have supported Shadow Light & Wander Light something special in anticipation for the Deck's release. All commission's will be first come, first serve & will only be taking on a finite amount. If you are interested, please send me a message or email Magick@WakingCanvas.com

To be able to support my loved ones with my passion is ideal. With the two weeks provided before the estimate shipping, this is a perfect window to offer such potential. If you resonate to make this possible, I thank you on behalf of myself & of my family. Your support & commission's will help contribute in such prospects, in more ways than I could share. We are truly & greatly appreciative.

Here are a few more examples of some the art explored these few weeks,

This also is all in preparation to make my upcoming project, Astro Light, the best it can BE. For those curious about current development of the Astro Light project, I feel it may be something much more. As previously shared, this will be a Constellation & Astrology themed Oracle deck. I am doing more research into the Constellations of different cultures & plan on creating an entire reinvented illustrated Star Map. This will then branch into many aspects like an Oracle Deck, but am interested in pursuing an Astro-Grimoire & many other surprises on the way.

      @NyxMoon As stated in the opening update, the replacement magnetic boxes are arriving mid-month so that I can assemble them and send them out by the end of January. The sooner they arrive, the sooner I am able to begin preparing everything for shipping. As concrete developments occur, I will be offering more project updates.
