CROOKED WAY TAROT • NEW EDITION LAUNCHES @ KICKSTARTER TUES. JUNE 2!

Crooked Way Gothic Tarot came quite close to succeeding on Kickstarter last year. In the end, we were forced to launch it as a more expensive print-on-demand deck. But beginning on TUESDAY, JUNE 2, we're trying again, this time with a more modest goal in mind. Instead of funding both a standard and deluxe large-size edition, we're just focusing on the standard edition. If the goal is met, we'll be able to offer you this spectacular ghoulish tarot pack in better quality and at half the price. YOU can help make it happen!

In late March, I noticed that she was breathing awfully hard. By the last week of April, I knew that...

On Printing, Shipping. . . and Corona-19

This post calls to mind (well, to my mind, which is lost in the past most of the time) the old Doublemint chewing gum commercials: because it’s “two — two — two posts in one!” I’ve been wanting for a while now to discuss the different printing methods that are used to produce my decks. At the same time, there’s the whole Covid-19 “pandemic” scare that’s going on, and this directly relates to the the decks’ production and shipping. Let’s get the Coronaviris thing out of the way first. Some of my decks do ship from Hong Kong. At the very start of the coronavirus scare, this caused some delays of up to two weeks in the shipment of those...

Tarot: The Gift of Life

Here is something that I have typed before: Tarot has been good FOR me and good TO me. It’s probably something that I should type every day. In 2013, I was still in a bad place in a number of ways. But I had taken up the cards again as part of my recovery, and that was the one thing I can point to as being instrumental in saving my life. One of my doctors had advised me earlier to start writing and drawing again. I did not think that this was Good Advice. All of my prior efforts in writing, cartooning and design had resulted only in failure and disappointment, and to open that can of worms again, to...
