Hello friends!

I'm your local art witch and I'm here to bring a little more magic into the world. Tarot, illustration, writing, and comics are both my craft AND my witchcraft! I'm here to tell stories about people like me, a queer, trans/nonbinary person living a full life, through joyful times and sorrowful ones. 

Why Patreon?
The money I make on Patreon is an essential part of my income. I recently (August 2018) quit my part time day job and am now working full time as an artist and Tarot reader. By supporting me on Patreon, you contribute to the money that pays my bills, income, food, and other necessities for living! Patreon income is nice to have on top of my deck sales as it is fairly steady and I can plan for it to be in my bank account each month. Your regular contribution, even just $1-2, adds up and gives me peace of mind. I couldn't have gone full time without it!

What kind of work do you do?

TAROT
My most well-known creation is the Numinous Tarot, a full Tarot deck that features inclusive, diverse, colorful imagery and a guidebook based in intersectional feminism and written with gender neutral language. Gender has also been removed from the card titles--for example, The Empress is called The Nurturer and the King of Swords is the Mystic of Bells. Many different body types, abilities, and skin colors are showcased by the people on the cards in the hopes that more people will see themselves represented.



The Numinous Tarot raised an amazing $27,798 on Kickstarter in 2017 and became a reality several months later! You can purchase a copy of the deck and guidebook HERE in my shop. I currently (as of August 2018) have low stock and will not be restocked until Spring 2019, so get your copy now if you don't want to wait!

I have been reading Tarot since 2003 and currently offer a monthly group reading for Patrons who pledge $2 and up! My focus is one of optimism, hope, healing, and recognition of the dark, shadow parts of life rather than turning away from them. Private readings are also available through my web shop.

COMICS
I am creating a new comic called The Thread That Binds in 2018. It's a solarpunk fantasy drama about a found family of queer bookbinding witches dealing with loss & strengthening the bonds between themselves. It will be released digitally chapter-by-chapter (about 40 pages at a time) every 3-4 months for free or pay-what-you-like. Patrons at the $2+ level will get to read an entire chapter ahead of the general public. The first chapter is expected to be available to Patrons in late fall/early winter 2018.

From January 2011 - October 2016 I published an urban fantasy webcomic called Ignition Zero about a bunch of queer college-age friends who get mixed up in the supernatural. Pretty much the entire cast is queer, and the two leads are romantic asexuals (like myself)! The story is not about their queerness, but it is definitely a clear part of the characters' lives.



I also sometimes make journal comics about my life, mental health, gender, queerness, and whatever else is on my mind. Those comics get posted here FIRST before anyone else gets to see them! Some of my journal comics are exclusive to backers entirely, as well.


OTHER STUFF

Sometimes I post recipe zines, or magic spells, process videos, or short stories for my Patrons as well! Whatever's on my mind and on my drawing table, Patrons get to see it first and see more of it. I'm also currently working on setting up livestreams so you can watch me paint!

I have a question or comment, how can I contact you?
Please email me at [email protected] and I'll get back to you as soon as possible!

Thank you! <3
