I’ve noticed I’ve been getting a whole bunch of new followers in the last little bit (thanks!) and I feel duty bound to let you all know that the drawings here are part of a specific project that is now over. This Tumblr site exists as an archive of that project.
I’m so happy that these images circulate enough to draw new people in, but nothing new is coming (cue the hemorrhaging of followers). Please though, feel free to keep circulating them, and I encourage everyone to have a poke around the ol’ archive.
A Berlin Diary by Sholem Krishtalka.
Just so you know, if you want to know what I’ve been up to, my Berlin diary is where all the action is.
As I might have mentioned a couple of times here and there, I’m living in Berlin now/for the moment/for as long as I can. As a kind of experiment, I am keeping a visual diary of my time here.
You can follow it here: aberlindiary.tumblr.com.
Oh, it will occasionally get NSFW. This is Berlin, after all.
See you there,
So the Tarot deck that I’ve been slaving away on is now printed and available! There was that whole re-locating to Europe thing that happened, so they get shipped to you from glamorous Berlin (which impacts shipping costs). All details available here: http://bit.ly/13oPJzs
Let me tell you all a little story.
My hard drive crashed a month or so ago, and I lost the original scans of the last 11 Lurking drawings. So I begin scanning away, and realize that towards the end there, I got a little lazy with titling and dating the drawings.
So here I am, scanning and titling, titling and scanning, when all of a sudden the numbers don’t add up. There are, in fact, not 300 drawings. There are only 299.
Which means that this project is not yet over.
I am currently off of Facebook, for a variety of reasons, all of them excellent. I will, reluctantly, be returning to Facebook once I am in Germany (in a scant 10 days). So, towards the latter half of the next two weeks, expect one more drawing for this here project; 300, I said — a deal’s a deal.
Oh hi there.
Two updates: the first is that a selection of Lurking drawings will be published as part of the XXX zine series. I’ll let y’all know when it’s available for purchase.
The second (and heftier) bit of news is that, in slightly less than two weeks, I’m up and going to Berlin for a while. More announcements about that (and what I’ll be up to while I’m there) later, but in the meantime, any Berliners out there, feel free to get in touch.
In case you haven’t been following, I’ve been designing and illustrating a Tarot deck. I’ve just finished the Major Arcana images, and thought it a good time to announce that, should anyone want a 7” x 10” archival print of any of the images on the site thus far, I am happy to comply.
Prints are $30 plus shipping. Payment can be made via PayPal. Just send me a message via the ASK link, and I’ll send you the pertinent details.
Oh and prints of the Lurking drawings remain always and forever available for purchase as well.
