Woooo it’s a new year! I feel like I start every year by declaring “This is gonna be my year,” and then it’s kinda… not haha. But, FOR REAL, this year is gonna be my year! December was incredibly busy so it has been nice taking a couple weeks of downtime this month while I wrap up a few things that have been on the list for a while. This post is to give some updates on what I have been up to the last little bit and share some things that are happening soon.
The Fox Tarot has been spiffed up and is ready for reprinting! This was a big project that I managed to tackle during a quiet January, and I’m really happy with the results. In the end I gave the cards a new reversible back design, a new 2 piece box design, a totally reorganized and expanded 116 page guidebook, a more complete reversals system including additional moon phases and personality traits for the court cards… in addition to updated artwork for the cards to make them more detailed and contrasty. It was a lot. But it is bigger and better than before and I’m in love with it all over again.
Newly completed artwork means more elements to turn into a fabric pattern! The Fox Tarot has a new matching tarot cloth print featuring drawings from the deck. 100% cotton and chiffon fabrics have been ordered. I took a moment this week to work out some new settings on my serger, something I haven’t ever done before in the 20 years I’ve had it haha. I discovered I am able to stitch a tight rolled hem on the tarot cloths which is a much cleaner finish than serging and then hemming them. So all cloths and patches will now be finished nicely by machine, and they will be way faster to produce which is a win for me.
One other thing I have in progress right now is a tarot journal that corresponds to the shorthand symbols included in the Fox Tarot. There will be both a 31 day printed Tarot Journal (more on this later!) as well as a free page download for readers to print at home. It will be available soon, here is a peek at the legend that will be included.
The Fox Universe Tarot: A Self Care Oracle is finished printing and is on the way to my studio, all preorders will be shipping out once they arrive (Estimated to be around February 8th). Print date for The Fox Tarot: Pips Edition to be announced soon.
Enormous thanks to everyone that has supported me and my weirdo art over 2019. 2020 is going to be a blast!
