The Happy Squirrel by puimun The Happy Squirrel by puimun
Medium: Watercolor
Size: 7.5x12 inches
Details: [link]

"The cards are vague and mysterious." - The Simpsons

I'm toying with the idea of seeing if I can get these printed on something approximating the actual cards to include as an exclusive for decks purchased from Shadowscapes along with some other goodies (to be decided) as a special edition. I can't compete with Amazon for price, so I don't begrudge anyone purchasing from there, but I do like to offer a little extra something whenever I sell commercial products from my own site. The Happy Squirrel card wouldn't be exactly the same cardstock...there's just no way I can duplicate it completely, but would that be of interest to people?

I was wondering.  You feature halos of light in a goodly portion of your work, and you always seem to get them really close to perfectly circular.  Do you use a compass in the sketch stage?

Is the Happy Squirrel card only available for purchase with the Special Edition of the Shadowscapes Tarot?

I would rather buy directly from you anyway--and the extra goodies are just what I need to justify paying more!

Please include the goodies, and I will order the deck from Shadowscapes the moment I find out it's available to order!

As someone who collects tarot decks for the art, I think that would be awesome! The painting itself is gorgeous, and I may have to pick up a full-sized print of it, too...I love how you have all four suits tucked away in the tree.

I'd definitely be interested in getting a little bonus card; especially considering I have something of an affinity for squirrels. ;)

Out of curiosity, do you make more personal profit from direct sales or is it about the same through Amazon or elsewhere?

Yes I do. When selling it myself, I get 50% vs. 5%

However I'm aware that sometimes amazon is just too cheap to resist and so as I said please don't let that stop you from buying there! If I do sell it from my site, I will be offering it as a special edition for a higher price, but I will include some extra items and prints. It's just that selling it as is, even for the full list price is hard because of all the extra effort it takes to package something like this safely (prints and books are much easier to package and ship).

Well, unless it costs 50% more, I'd rather have my money going to the artist rather than some middle-man distributor. ;)

Oh I wish I hadn't pre-ordered my deck now! i would have happily paid extra for unique extras...
I might give my pre-order deck to someone as a present and order a deck from you if you do create extra cards :-)

if there are printing places near you you might look into commissioning them. I know if you work from a print of your pencil and water color them by hand you could have it as a special art card.

If you signed the Happy Squirrel card I think that would make it that much more special. I really like the ravens coming out of her hair, you pulled that off really well! I would have put more wings in it, which I think would throw off the flow. Anyway, it beautiful!

I was planning on buying the deck strait from your site anyway - just so you get more mola! ;)

As far as extra goodies, that is awesome and very generous of you! Could you throw in any of your glass pendants/jewelry? Or make a new one specifically for the release? Just an idea.

So excited to get this deck!

An excellent addition to an already exquisite deck! I especially love how the Squirrel has hoarded all of the four suits into it's stash. I'll be happy to see this included with a deck, and wish you well in having it printed to match the published deck.

I promised my niece your deck the moment it became available. I'm sure she would love any extra goodies you tossed in.

However, you've done so much work already, do you really need to add more?
