Hi folks,

As you probably know, I write short totem files based on a description and keywords, and then I write long totem essays which break down those keyword meanings, explain potential shadow totem meanings and usually give some information about how best to contact the totem for self-work purposes. All of this is at Wildspeak.

In working on my new Totems of the Ocean (Vol. 1) book, I've completed all of the short totem files, but would now like to expand 10 of these into essays. I'd like to invite your input. I know of two I'm going to do already, but I'd like you to help me figure out which of the following would make great choices for the following 8. :) Thanks! Feel free to pass the word around, especially to people who you know are interested in the ocean, or ocean creatures.

Just letting you folks know that I have been nominated for the 2011 Rose & Bay Award in the Art Category (it's a crowdfunding award, and you can find out more about that on the landing page here)

If you are interested in voting for my art, or anyone else's art (no, you don't have to vote for me, I'm amongst some seriously awesome company), please VOTE HERE.

I was lucky enough to be nominated by [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith who wrote:

"Summary: Moonvoice produces a variety of art, much of it black ink drawings tinted with watercolor pencils. Totemic and shamanic motifs previal, with amazing diversity among featured animals and birds. Moonvoice also draws at amazing speed, even though the drawings are exquisitely details: it is not rare to see a complete pencil sketch one day, inked the next, colored the third, and then on to a new sketch -- or to see several pictures at once. We get to see a lot of in-progress stuff. I've been echoing links on my blogs because the art is just that cool to watch in development.

The project is funded by print and other product sales. Moonvoice also does commissions sometimes. Audience participation includes polls (such as which animals we'd like to see, or what size a planned card deck should be) and discussions."

You can read other nominations and check out websites here. And feel free to check out the other categories and creators, patrons and artisans involved and cast your vote! :)

Would you use an oracle deck if it was standard playing card size? (I.e. quite small for the hands in terms of shuffling?)

Normally I prefer larger decks, but 3.5 x 2.5 inches is the standard size offered and I am thinking about tweaking with layout to see if I can work with this size.

If I can, would you work with this size?

Standard playing card size (3.5 x 2.5 inches) for a tarot / oracle deck, what do you think?

For an art deck, it's kind of small, so I'd wait for a larger format.
6 (10.5%)

For an art deck, it's kind of small, but I'd still use that format.
34 (59.6%)

I don't care what size as long as I can use your artwork for self-work and divination already!!!
27 (47.4%)

I'm sight or vision impaired, that size is too small.
3 (5.3%)

I guess I'd get it, but I'd probably wait for a larger size.
4 (7.0%)

I suppose this is where I vote for the ticky box?

Also, infinite thanks to [personal profile] tsukikokoro who has gotten me thinking about this in different ways, as well. :)
