I’d like to introduce you to a whole new set of Kiddy Katz cards; this time with a Halloween inspired theme. We call it the Spooky Cats Tarot, although it has a more Halloween holiday feel to it.
If you’re like us, you’ll probably enjoy the feeling of Halloween long after Halloween has past, so I feel that the deck will be enjoyable to read with, regardless of the time of year.
The deck is full of fancy costumes, jack o lanterns, creepy spiders, bats and much more.
The good thing about working on a new deck is the ability to keep sharing new artwork during the campaign to draw attention to our Kiddy Katz decks, but also to give our followers a little Halloween themed Spooky cats artwork each day. (Update: The deck is now complete)
The Spooky Cats deck consists of the suit of Pumpkins (Coins), Brooms (Wands), Swords and Cups and of course the Majors. To the left is our 2 of Brooms where our kitty is dressed as a kind of Dracula character.
My world was a little rocked in August when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. It came as a shock to me as I never thought myself a great consumer of sugar, although I must admit that as an Irishman I had grown fond of Irish Whiskey over the years and it must have taken its toll.
At first I did not want to accept that I was diabetic, nor did I want to sign up to all the clubs and groups they advise you to be a part of. I didn’t want to officially “join the club” and I probably won’t, even though I have accepted that I have diabetes. I was in shock for a time, and started feeling depressed. I thought about announcing it on Facebook but thought better of it. Hurricane Harvey had struck the U.S, and Houston and other parts were badly affected. My diabetes blues paled in comparison. I decided that Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I would keep drawing cat images. I do not know if anyone will like them, but I do. When I wake up in the morning and see what I drew the previous day, it is these simple things that allow me to not feel too annoyed about now being a diabetic. It allows me to take my mind off my worries.
Of course I see the irony in drawing tonnes of candy in many of these cards when I’ve been completely sugar free throughout it’s creation. Candy corn, tootsie rolls and gummy worms feature among the candy in this deck, but alas I shall see none of it throughout Halloween…alright, so maybe a few, who knows lol.
There is something very therapeutic about drawing pictures everyday and I thank, not only those who buy my artwork (in whatever form it takes) but I am also grateful to those who hire me for their own projects.
