Teenage me would never have foreseen a future where I lived in SE Louisiana and worked as a professional artist. Teenage me would never have believed that I would be so willing to expose my heart and soul for the world to see.
Now, teenage me would have been delighted that I was pursuing Tarot reading as a side gig but she would have been gobsmacked that I'd created my own Oracle deck, let alone that I would be attempting to get backers on a public forum.
I can hear her in the back of my head, muttering disbelievingly: What if they don't like the deck?
What if they laugh at your art?
What if you fail?
Fortunately, I've left teenage me behind aside from the echo of her insecurities. I've journeyed far since those days. Otherwise, I wouldn't be here right now, writing these words and exposing my vulnerabilities.
The end of the Kickstarter campaign is in sight and we're about 2/3rds of the way to the goal.
I'm hoping to make a strong last week push and get the rest of the funding so that I can publish. If I don't get all the funding in the Kickstarter campaign, I actually get none of it.
If you've been thinking about it, but haven't made up your mind, just think: You will receive a box full of artwork that fits in the palm of your hand and I will be able to publish my dream.
Thank you to everyone that has backed me so far, your support in helping to make my dream a reality means so much to me. Your belief in me and my artwork in these precious years has made all the difference in my life.
It would be much appreciated if you can throw something in the Facebook fundraiser pot or in the Kickstarter campaign. $1? $2? $5? It adds up fast and can make all the difference!
If you can share my campaign that is also an enormous help as I really don't have a marketing budget. All I have is a box full of Oracle cards and an artist's dream.
