One thing I discovered when launching my first campaign on Kickstarter, is that as a project creator, you become immersed in a 24/7 all consuming adventure! My semi-regular blog posts pale when compared to the amount of time and work involved in running a campaign. Kickstarter is an amazing roller-coaster of nerves, excitement, gratitude and sheer anticipation – along with the huge reward of meeting so many wonderful people.

VIZAĜO’s queens frolicking around a whimsical teapot

Image Gallery

I put together a gallery with images from VIZAĜO artwork, cards and tuck box, to show an overview of what this colourful deck is about. I hope you enjoy:

The Goal in Sight

When I paint (on canvas),  I can complete the work without relying on external manufacturing or processes. Any manufacturing is generally done before I start the painting (paints in tubes, pre-stretched canvas, brushes bound and ready to go, bottled thinners & thickeners…) From the moment the canvas is on the easel, the process becomes all about the painting itself

A deck of cards on the other hand, is different … While the process of creating the artwork has many similarities, the deck itself isn’t complete until it has been printed – the point when all the characters and elements come together the way they were meant to be :)

Drawings for VIZAĜO

At almost 60% funded, I am hoping with all my heart to get across the line and be in a position to print the project that’s been my creative soul since July last year. A girl’s got to dream – besides, I know they will look great printed :)

I’d be thrilled if you spread the word to anyone you think might enjoy this colourful deck of cards!

Thank you for visiting and all the best,

Annette :)

Art to me, is as much about understanding life and its mysteries, as it is about telling stories to connect with the world ...

    You have been doing an amazing job, Annette – both with the launch and with the cards themselves. I agree with you: the cards are going to look absolutely fantastic when they become a physical reality (which they will).
