I had wanted to design an image to be printed as a scarf for foreverrrr… and I finally did! Depending on how this one goes I have some other designs in my head I’d like to paint and print as well.
I’m taking pre-orders over at my storenvy for those who might also enjoy having this as a scarf! It’ll be a 14x48in silk scarf. All the details can be found here: http://www.leptailurus.storenvy.com/
The moon is a card of mixed feelings. A distinct lack of clarity in your life causes a lot of conflict leaving you anxious and insecure. You’re letting your imagination run rampant, weaving tales of fear that don’t exist. Your emotions are getting the better of you and it is time to just… let go!

Savage Divination Tarot :: ACE OF COINS
This card represents the feeling of being lost and constricted. This clouded leopard is blind, surrounded by swords that threaten gashes if he even moves a step. He’s uncertain what to do or where to go. He’s totally powerless.

Hi there again! Long time no post. Heh.
I’m coming out of my tumblr hiatus to beseech you to check out my Patreon. If you enjoy my work and would like to see more with regularity, please look and consider becoming a patron— even just $1 per image can really go a long way!
I’m working hard behind the scenes to hopefully launch my art career this year into something more than just an idle hobby. And, well, I need any support I can get to make this dream a reality.
With Patreon you needn’t worry. You won’t be charged until after I create and share! No paying up front and waiting eons for my slow hands to craft images and get a product to you. So please, give it a look!
Working on some little #ACEO paintings for my next show.

The Three of Coins is a positive card representing teamwork, and planning, and the successes that come from both. Seek accompaniment in difficult projects and working together you will surely accomplish your goals!
Had a lot of fun with this one. Especially the swirly wirly background. :3
Somehow forgot to share this one!
The Wheel of Fortune is a card about your destiny. It may represent a turning point in your life, a sudden change, an explosion of opportunity. All those loose threads in your life start to weave together. Life is a cycle, there are ups and downs. So when everything is going your way, enjoy it! And when times get rough, it is important to remember that the cycle will come around again and the bad will melt away.
The King of Cups is a pleasant, calm figure. His emotions are balanced, he knows what he likes and he enjoys it. He is successful and revels in it. He’d be a good friend to have as he will encourage you on your journeys. Though watch out, he may seem innocent, but there is a hidden side to the King of Cups, too.
I couldn’t resist a tanuki for the King of Cups, though I did decide to omit the giant testicles he more traditionally carries with him…
The King of Wands is a bold card. A powerful figure, he is very inspiring and creative but equally firm and dominating. Some may call him stubborn or accuse him of letting his position get to his head, but all can agree that he works hard towards his goals.
The Empress is a card of mothering, power, and connection to nature. She is queenly but not at all weak, she stands proud and asserts herself over her domain.
I know I already did a lion for this deck but a lioness was just such a perfect fit that I absolutely could not avoid it for this one.
Included 2 work-in-progress images of the painting process, and the rough sketch from my sketchbook!
Ten of Coins! Included a couple work-in-progress screenshots that I managed to take.
Completed Two of Cups! This card represents deep connection and duality. Two sides of the same coin. A romantic card that often symbolizes true love and commitment to one another.
I’ve started heavily researching on launching a kickstarter for this project, and I hope to launch in the next month or two after I work out the specifics (and figured out some fun pledge perks). So if you’re enjoying this project so far please keep an eye out— I’ll announce here when it happens!
