~ February 2010 ~

It has been a while since I've updated my news page--an obvious sign that I'm a busy studio hermit! As you may know, The Fairy Tale Tarot was recently released and has received critical acclaim from many tarot luminaries. I also finished up a publicity campaign that included some amazing experiences on Blogtalkradio, my first imovie of The Fairy Tale Tarot, e-print interviews and fun giveaways. You can access archives of my interviews HERE.

I've also launched my storefront and have enjoyed creating tarot/print packages and custom drawings for fans and friends. Thank you for those who have ordered artwork from me. And those of you who have not and are interested, you can go to my store HERE.

I'm also creating logos and business cards for my creative clients including a logo for a dynamic blog talk radio duo and also one for a magical lady who creates specialty incense. If you're interested, please feel free to e-mail me for a quote and discussion of my services. My prices are competitive and I love helping others brand their unique visions. I'm also fortunate to be married to a professional graphic designer who assists with the technical end of things and helps assure the utmost quality in everything that we produce.

Publishing-wise, I'm over halfway through creating juicy, mysterious artwork for a deck focusing on ghosts and spirits. It will be published by U.S Games, though an exact release date has yet to be determined. In between, I'm working on project ideas and have embarked on my journey as a fine artist. I painted Owl-Shapeshifter and Crow-Shapeshifter as part of a winged enchantment series. These paintings are available as large format limited edition prints of 150.
Once 150 prints have been sold, the pieces will be retired forever.

If you would like to see my painting progress and be kept informed of blog updates and LisaHuntArt online specials and sundry tidbits in between, you can follow me on twitter and Facebook.

Thank you, friends. Your continued support is much appreciated!
Watch out for some upcoming March Madness sales including a tarot deck giveaway!

~Love & light,
Lisa

Tarot Reflections reviewer Debra Madigan posted a glowing review of the Fantasical Creatures Tarot in April. Her review is also posted at the Aeclectic Tarot.

~ Lisa: April 20, 2008

"Recently, a moderator for an art forum advised me that the infamous "Stacy English" has been ripping off my name and artwork. This is not the first time someone has attempted to pose as myself. I'm trying to understand why anyone would want to steal my creative identity in this manner to begin with--what is there to be gained from it? Thankfully, members, with an astute eye for fraud, brought the impostor to the attention of the moderator and the individual was prevented from posting. Unless an art group is listed on my links page and/or appears in a legitimate gallery with obvious copyright permission granted (and I am selective about where and how my art should appear on the web), assume it is an impostor."

"To everyone: I would greatly appreciate you helping me to stop this kind of unwelcome behavior by those who have seemingly nothing better to do than to pretend that they are me. Please e-mail me if you think someone is ripping my artwork off. Thank you for your kindness and support--and for other artists, beware of imposters! No one is immune from falling victim to art/identity theft. But by spreading the word and keeping informed, we can help prevent the proliferation of such perfidious behavior and protect our artistic integrity."

Lisa & Kris at the Orchid Gardens

Kris Waldherr - the new web site

 

~ Lisa: April 4, 2008

"My dear friend Kris Waldherr recently visited with her family. Our daughters are both three years old, so they managed to get in some serious playtime while the grownups chatted. We toured the American Orchid Society, drank some delicious coffee she brought from New York and enjoyed many hours of soulful art talk. It was fun to show her original watercolors from my upcoming Lisa Hunt Fairy Tale Tarot. And it was equally as fun to hear about everything she has been doing (she has an impressive work load!).

I'm quite certain most of you are familiar with Kris' amazing work, but if you're not...keep your eye out for her upcoming publication Doomed Queens (Doubleday, 2008). Knowing Kris and her work, I know this book is going to be a huge success! It's going to be one of those *you gotta read!* books. Be sure to check out her new website:"

November 2007 - Note from the Cincinnati Tarot Guild
-------------

Alchemical thought. What is it?

Alchemical thought is what we perceive everyday....We perceive it in our relationships, our families, our workplace....But most of all we perceive it within our minds. We put our ideas, actions and reactions together based on feeling, thought and environment. This means we tend to take in our information in, in parts. These parts come together in a series of space and time. Sometimes we can take in too much and we begin to over load.
Alchemy is a type of discipline, a path of sorts and also a state of mind. If we can organize the understanding of all the layers within this type of "coming together" or "FUSION" - we can better understand HOW to slow down or speed up our thought processes, particularly pertaining to critical thinking and thought patterning.

In Taroic imagery, we can bring together all of the information in the card/s, and the information in the environment perceived by the reader of the client/seeker and tune into the patterns and energies of what information is needed to obtain answers.

Friday's class was wonderful and very informative in every way. We learned that alchemy is a part of life daily and though we seek answers on the general basis of wrong verses right, we also can peel back the very ingredients of any given situation, person ,place or thing and understand cause and effect.

Lisa Hunt's new deck, Fantastical Creatures, provides us with a wonderful example of "thought alchemy" with her interwoven artistic angle and view on symbology, deity, and color in this deck. At our first class in "Journey Within The Mind" series, we see ourselves as "parts" in an ever changing world, living day to day under the guise of the multi layers we live with we refer to as life, that make up those parts of a "whole". Energy speaks to like energy - we find that we are "part" of something greater. Thought patterns repeat. Solution becomes predictable by understanding these patterns.

Fantastical Creatures gives us the full experience of alchemic thought and the knowledge contained within ourselves verses imagery on a metaphoric and empathic level.

The Cincinnati Tarot Guild highly recommends Fantasical Creatures Tarot in the usage of the Alchemic Path.

A big thank you to Lisa Hunt for this new and wonderfully impactual deck!

June 2007: Lisa just sold another project to a publisher, to be completed in 2009. This project will reflect a darker side of Lisa's work where elements of the shadow will be brought to light on the canvas, so to speak. Lisa is very excited about the prospect of exploring the subject matter in depth (TBA at a later date). She has already compiled a plethora of research material and will throw herself into intense sketching throughout the summer.

 

June 2007: Lisa's art graces the cover of the 40th issue of The Beltane Papers. The painting used is a portrait of Sedna, an underwater deity from the Inuit tradition.

"As Sedna submerges, she is connecting more fully with her inner being, allowing one state of consciousness to merge with another."
Sedna was originally published as the Death card for Animals Divine Tarot to represent rebirth and the opportunity for new beginnings.

If you pick up a copy of TBP, be sure to read Lisa's friend Kris Waldherr's column on mythic living. Kris is an extraordinary woman whose various publications are insightful and beautiful.
