The Ghostly, Mythic, Tarot & Fairy Tale musings of Lisa Hunt

Seagull-Shapeshifter, Fairy Tale Spreads and our humble, creative life.

| February 1, 2013

Seagull-Shapeshifter was inspired by the birds in my backyard.

After sending everyone off to school/work, I like to open up my day with a cup of coffee and a porch chair. Those precious few minutes between me and the open sky provide the necessary clarity to mentally jot down my to-do list. It’s like my own opening bell–a ringing in of the new day with prospects of an industriousness…

Happy New Year! ATA logo design, fixing this old house and getting organized for 2013

| January 9, 2013

A few months ago, the American Tarot Association approached me with an awesome assignment: Design a new logo that would encapsulates the idea of “community”. For me, the concept of community engenders simple beauty, connectivity and the capacity to feel compassion in the face of challenges and elation in the glow of another’s achievement…

Ghosts & Spirits Tarot going to press!

| October 28, 2011

When the fed ex guy dropped off a fat box from my art director at U.S. Games, my happy dance alarm threw me into a whirl as I quickly tore into its contents. Out came the final Ghosts & Spirits Tarot manuscript, card back designs, card art and the long-awaited cover designs. It is hard to describe how one feels when one first lays eyes on pieces of production, but it is similar to seeing one’s artwork or earned award newly framed and hanging on the wall…

Milestones along the way. A Midsummer update from the studio hermit

| July 16, 2010

As many of you may know, I’ve been spending the last few years focusing on ghosts and other beings from the spirit world. It has been an eye opening project, literally, as I dig ever deeper into the mysterious realm of shadows and paranormal phenomena. This project marks me as an artist totally letting go– with fearless intent and curious examination.

Bird Shapeshifters: venturing back from wence I came

| December 8, 2009

After 20 years of publishing intensity, I’ve taken a break from contracted assignments to work on my own material, unheeded by deadlines, dimensions, or other technical considerations. This does not mean I’m abandoning my identity as an illustrator/writer–I still have plenty more to do/explore in print publishing. I needed to refresh myself- and flex some creative muscle that was lying languid since the completion of the monumental Fairy Tale Tarot project…

In the throes of an intense painting season (with “studio buddy” at my side)

| October 1, 2009

It has been a while since I’ve written a life-as-an-artist post. The past few months have been a flurry of The Fairy Tale Tarot promotion (something that has been a fun experience!), getting kids ready for another school year, tying up long neglected loose ends including painting bookshelves, purging clutter and prepping seedlings for the […]

Seeing The Fairy Tale Tarot kit for the first time: a peak experience!

| July 24, 2009

Life has peak experiences, though these monumental events are surely infrequent. And for me, one of those celebratory moments was delivered to my front door via a fed ex box…
