I can’t believe how much fun I’m still having with this project. I’ve created around 80 of these animal totem paintings so far, which feels sort-of incredible to me. The is the longest I’ve ever stuck with this type of daily project (even though it’s ended up being more like 5 or 6 times a week, not daily, but you know what I mean).
And the really fun thing is that when I finished the Vulture one above yesterday, I now have a full alphabet of animals, A through Z.
Check it out:
I’m pretty obsessed with how they all look together. I didn’t originally set out to create an alphabet series, but once I realized I was practically there, I started filling in all the strange letters. X, Q, etc. I’ll probably switch some out (for example, I don’t think I need Arctic Fox and Fox in the same set), but all in all, it pleases me to see these together.
Here are a few other recent animals in the collection:
You can follow along on Instagram, where I post each animal painting as I create them, along with a bit about their unique animal totem energy qualities.
I am really, really excited about the possibilities that exist for this project. I’m going to create an oracle deck for sure, though I don’t know when that will be complete and ready for purchase – I’m working on nailing down a manufacturer, settling on size specs, etc – lots of folks are asking me! I’ll keep you posted here as that all comes together.
I’m thinking, too, that a fun set of alphabet cards for kids might be great. Or a big alphabet poster. Or a matching game. Or or or….
The sky’s the limit!
I’m also going to have a big ol’ sale at some point and sell these original paintings, because I’ve got quite the stack going on at this point. So stay tuned for that!
Hope you like them. Got any animal suggestions? Send them my way!
