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

Enjoy your messes while you can!

| September 17, 2013

I was talking to a neighbor of mine who recently became an empty nester. She told me that now that kids are all grown up and gone, her house is in perfect order: neat, clean and quiet. Before I could tell her how happy I was for her (because my own house is hopelessly disorganized and loud with kids, cats, and creativity), her eyes welled up. She told me “Enjoy your messes. It’s life. Enjoy it while you have it because one day you are going to miss it all…”

Raven has lingered the longest!

| July 18, 2013

I am no stranger to Raven and its mythological stature. I’ve collected stories and sketched the corvus for as long as I can remember. No wonder— It is a rather omnipresent bird in folktale tellings and has an almost divine position in the mythos spectrum…

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…

Help to make a difference! Shop Small Saturday.

| November 21, 2012

Dear friends: When you “shop small” you really do make a difference to families and their communities. Please help keep Lisa Hunt Art in the black by making a purchase at my online store. Not only does it help ensure the financial health of a little-studio-that-could, but it helps nourish the soul and even invigorates further creative output…

Mischief, mastery and wit: The Marvelous Magpie

| February 3, 2012

Whenever I tell my friends that it’s Hermit-time, they know I’ll be largely unplugged and holed-up in my studio. If any of you follow my posts on Facebook and Twitter, you can almost identify these creative intermezzos by my virtual absences…

The Fool, the Piano and a Phantom Called Stage Fright

| May 26, 2011

I love the piano. To me, the keys are allegorical. They are emotive, mysterious, scary and can be a girl’s best friend. They can feel hard and cold, slippery and wet, warm and soft–all depending on what is being played and how it’s being played.

Spring cleaning: From Hungry Ghosts to Hummingbirds

| April 19, 2011

That is how I would best describe things here in Hunt-Kramerland right now. As I proof my Ghosts manuscript and check all the art scans (special thanks to the ever-patient Paula and Lynn at USG), I’m looking ahead to my next project focusing on birds. But before taking the next project plunge…

New Year’s Resolution: Breaking the chains that bind us

| January 3, 2011

It’s hard to believe that a month has gone by since my last post. But given the hectic pace that was December, I’m not surprised that some things were woefully neglected along the way including my blog…

What I’m up to: Christmas Carol, Kobolds & Hearing the Tooth Fairy.

| December 6, 2010

When working, I usually have 3-4 drawings and paintings on boards at various stages. Some sit there for a month while others I tackle right away. It all depends on the mood I’m in and what I feel compelled to focus on…

Documenting the Drawing Process

| August 18, 2010

In the last few months, many friends and fans have suggested that I somehow capture the creative process on film, so to speak. Though I feel confident drawing and painting in front of others, I have never sketched in the presence of a camera-on-tripod before. I used a remote feature that enabled me to snap […]
