So, it all started with wanting to get back to drawing and honing my skills. Once I decided on this, the universe sent me a piece of advice via YouTube.
The video above started the creative journey of Corpus Femina Tarot (although I didn't know it yet at the time.) The advice was to stick to drawing one thing every day for a year. I chose to draw the naked female form. My goal then was simply to get better at drawing.
Around the same time, I was diving deeper into tarot. It was in 2020 when it all started --- my tarot practice and rekindling my love for art. The result was the creation of a tarot deck.
Here's the timeline of Corpus Femina's creative journey.
- I officially started creating a tarot deck in August 2020.
- Finished the deck in December 2021.
- Launched a Kickstarter campaign in February 2022 which was unsuccessful.
- Relaunched in September 2022 which got funded in October 2022!
- Deck production commenced in December 2022.
- Production was completed, plus I received my copy in January 2023!
- Decks arrived in March 2023 and all Kickstarter rewards were shipped in the same month.
That is just a snapshot of the entire creative journey that taught me so much. I will share more on this brand-new blog. Yes, this is the first blog post! I don't want it to be tediously long.
Things really do happen as they should at exactly the right time. I can see that now as I lovingly look back. I am always where I need to be.
At the time of writing, we are a few days away from the 1st anniversary of the launch of the Kickstarter campaign that made my first deck happen. How time flies! To celebrate, I will offer Corpus Femina Tarot at a discounted price for the rest of September!
