Mini Meditations on Friendship is my first ever illustrated book, and to create it has been a wonderful experience and life-long dream come true! Truly. I was so thrilled when Liminal 11 asked me to collaborate with them, and equally surprised when they asked me to share the process of creating this book with you.
Last year, when we tweeted out looking for someone to create an original webcomic based on tarot or mind, body, spirit themes, we heard back almost immediately from Kaylee Pinecone. She developed an amazing idea that we knew people were going to love, and – if our social media and blog numbers are anything to go by – now we know how much it’s resonating with you!
Fez Inkwright is an illustrator, author, and folklorist. Her greatest passions are botany, nature, primitive religions, and folklore, which flavour most of her work. For the past eight years she has produced work for children’s books, hand-drawn maps, and tattoo design, and now spends her time indulging in conservation work and writing. She lives in Bristol, UK, with two cats and several hundred bees.
So here we are, immersed in the joys of 2019, but still with a reflective mind to 2018. If not for an exceptionally busy end of year for Liminal 11, this would have been written earlier. So please forgive the tardiness.
Each year, the number of high quality tarot decks seems to find new peaks, whether self-published, through established companies or with the emergence of new publishers (tip of the hat to Liminal 11!). It really does seem to be a golden age to be a tarot enthusiast or collector. Are there too many decks to choose from? Personally, I think the wide variety provides the space to find a deck that connects more deeply with you… as for the extent that it is a problem, then it is certainly a premium one!
It’s the first #tarottuesday of 2019! Err… it’s the first post anyway. We all gave ourselves a bit of a break over the holidays and we’re feeling refreshed and ready! Whatever the new year means to you, we hope it brings you health, happiness, love and lots of amazing books and tarot cards! We can help a little bit with all of those things!
Happy 2019 to everyone! Whatever the new year brings from you, we hope it brings you health, happiness, joy and plenty of amazing books and tarot cards! And hopefully we can help a little bit with all of those things…
Read on to see a quick rundown of Liminal 11’s 2018 and a few quick updates to keep you in the loop for the year ahead! If you’ve only just heard of us, this is the perfect primer.
Janelle Belgrave‘s first love is astrology. She stumbled upon it at an early age and has studied it for nearly 20 years since then. She lives by the principle of “As above, So below” believing that all things that we experience here on Earth are reflected in the heavens and within humanity itself. That guidance led her to study Chinese Medicine, earning her Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2012. Since then she’s practiced in a myriad of settings, from community acupuncture to private practice. That same year she trained to become a Clairvoyant Intuitive, and has seen used her skills to give readings that have been lauded as impactful and accurate.
In 2015 Janelle began seeing astrology clients, coaching them one on one, using their natal charts to support them through challenges, success and future planning. She has written horoscopes for Refinery29, XoNecole and Cassius, and she has been mentioned XoJane, Essence, The Guardian and other publications. Her mission is to make astrology, clairvoyance & Chinese Medicine both practical and common knowledge for the public, as their wisdom is powerful as well as healing when applied in our daily lives.
