Wow, I just hit 20,000 tumblr followers! Thank you thank you thank you for taking the time to enjoy my work in the tumblr universe!

It’s been a looong time since I’ve done a print giveaway and I’m thinking this is the perfect occasion!

You see, there are these flat file drawers I have filled with prints that have been deemed “unfit to sell”. These guys have little dents, scratches and blobs but are totally perfect to hang on your wall for FREE. 

So to enter the giveaway all you have to do is reblog this post! Next friday, September 26th at noon I’ll be randomly selecting a group of people to receive some of these beauties!

Make sure you’re following me on Facebook and Instagram and be sure to sign up for the newsletter at for the first word on new releases!

Much Love,

Mockup of a book cover idea I had for Jane Eyre.

The jacket is the fire (obviously) but when you take it off, you see the damage the fire left behind.

The Prisma Visions Tarot is coming..Pre-orders begin in October!

Hellloooo Tarot enthusiasts! Wow, I’m already floored by the support this deck has gotten in it’s baby stages. Thank you all so much for your encouragement, it has fueled me to keep pressing on late at night and through this unbearable heat.

 I’ve thought a lot about how to approach the production of the Prisma Visions tarot, and as quality is really important to me, and printing a tarot deck is extremely costly, I’ve come to the conclusion that another Kickstarter is in order. This is really good news for you, because not only do you get to PREORDER the deck in the next few weeks, but you’re also going to have the chance to get it at a discount. Not only that, but there’s going to be some sweet rewards and incentives for becoming a backer, much like this limited edition art print above.

So start spreading the word about the Prisma Visions deck! Make sure you’re signed up for the mailing list, there you will get the first word on when the campaign will launch!

the written escape

I'm a 19-year-old book blogger from Toronto, Ontario. This blog is a response to the people who ask me what books I read and what they're about. Through this blog I intend to review and blog about my interest in books. I'm currently reading The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two by Catherynne M. Valente and Where I'm Calling From by Raymond Carver.
