Today on this pleasant October dawn we welcome artist and designer Dean Kealy to the clouds.
Dean contributed something to our little event this year that gets extra bonus points during this event—an original work inspired by a nightmare. After all, that’s one of the things that got us started here, right?
Story has it this was based off of a recurring nightmare Dean had about tooth loss. Pretty freaky, huh? Don’t worry. Legend has it any teeth harmed were later repaired by dental professionals.
I’ve been like a small child in a room full of bright colors ever since I found Mark online. He shares some truly wonderful behind-the-scenes magic on a pretty regular basis. He’s worked on a good number of all the movies I’ve ever loved as well.
It has been six whole years today since CardCastles first opened its virtual doors.
We started off from humble beginnings. This place has come a very long way after completing an equally extensive journey. We have shared so many memories with you as a family through my artwork and journals, and that spawned off into even more beautiful things. We have enjoyed this trek amongst the stars in the sky with you, so much so it gave birth to new worlds and a parent company. Snapping Turtle was born out of love. New ventures it seeks as it now takes over the clouds and we transition through the full merge.
So much more planned for the rest of this year. & For however long we keep this going.
We’re slowly packing our things again for yet another move. The future is somewhat uncertain but we’ve been planning out how the next few months should go. We’re all so ready to leave this place, including my son. While I sorted out upcoming errands and filed away my folders for the night, I added this piece to the collection of prints coming up for sale as wall art and greeting cards. It actually started out as my son’s idea and it is brilliant. This one is another trip into the fantasy genre.
Why not escape far away for a while before we head someplace new and have to do all of that un-fun grown-up stuff. 🙂
