Exciting News! Anakin & Mika will be on Kitten Bowl V on the Hallmark Channel!

Exciting News!! Anakin and Mika are going to be on TV! They will have a small featured segment in Kitten Bowl V on the Hallmark Channel, Sunday February 4, 12/11c. Kitten Bowl V this year will feature video clips of special kitties like Anakin & Mika to help promote to their viewers to consider rescuing and adopting  "special needs" kittens and cats. We are thrilled to have Anakin & Mika be a part of this & hope you will tune in to see them on the show. I know it will be asked so I will answer that now, Their video segment was created using video footage I made of Ani & MIka. No, I did not let anyone come to my house & film them ;) Also you can make your own Cat-lete Trading Card of your cat and learn more about the wonderful kitty adoptions that happen because of this show on the Kitten Bowl V Website here,

Bakeneko/Nekomata Rough Sketch for 78 Tarot Mythical

For my 78 Tarot Mythical Card I'm painting the Mythological Japanese Demon Cat called Bakeneko/Nekomata. I haven't decided what to call him yet exactly. From my research it seems Nekomata "Forked Tail" and Bakeneko "Changed Cat" are very similar. I've read a lot of info about them both & the sites each explain them both a little differently. One site even calls Nekomata a breed of Bakeneko? It's all rather confusing to me. I'm leaning towards Nekomata since he does have the forked tail & is in the mountains but I'm not sure.

My card is the Ace of Wands. It's a positive card full of personal power, confidence, enthusiasm, new beginnings, hope for the future, ready to take on the world! I used a lot of the symbolism and card elements from the traditional Ace of Wands Cards- I’ve got the fire, the Japanese castle in the distance, the forest will be in the background. The bamboo wand with the new growth sprouts on it. The clouds from the original card are in his kimono and the blue of his kimono will represent the river.

I absolutely LOVE my sketch & I can't wait to start painting :D I hope you like it too. I have less that a month to get this whole painting done so I have got to get moving on this asap!

"Christmas  Kitty 6"
Original Painting Framed Ornament
Size; approximately 2.25"  x 2.25" framed- 3" x 3"
Medium; Acrylic & Ink on Cotton Canvas Sheet.  2017
An adorable Chocolate Point Cat wearing jingle bells in front of a colorful Christmas tree. Wide-eyed Winter Kitties! This is one of 6 Christmas Kitty Original Painted Ornaments I have created for the Holidays this year. The frame has a small charm with the date 2017.
Additional  info: The painting is signed on the front by me, initials & date  and also signed on the back by me including the title and date. It is  sealed with a light coat of UV resistant spray varnish to enhance and  protect the colors.

I’ve been on Patreon for a few months now & so far so good! But I want my Patreon to be the best it can be. That means I needed to make some changes. I took a good look at what I’ve learned on Patreon so far. With that info I have updated all of my reward tiers to be more desirable and beneficial to my patrons. Each tier is a fantastic deal for the rewards given. Patreon isn't free BUT if you would like to try it out, It's just $1.00 to join as a "Sweet Kitten" & be included in all of my Monthly Giveaways & have access to Select Patreon Only posts. This will give you an idea of how it all works and you can decide from there if you'd like to remain a Sweet Kitten or try one of the other reward tiers. (You can always change or cancel your pledge at any time.) I’ve also added a New $15 Reward Tier, the “Surprise Cat” which includes an item or two featuring my artwork delivered to you monthly :) Same as before my reward tiers featuring original art do still have a cap on the number of patrons that can pledge to them.
What is Patreon? My Patreon page is a place for me to interact and connect with those who want to know more about me and my art. I share a more personal look at myself, my creative processes and inspirations than I currently do on any other social site. Depending on what Patreon Reward Tier you pledge to you will have the opportunity to see exclusive peeks of what goes on behind the scenes in my career (Patreon Only Posts, Works In Progress & New Art will be posted here first, & lots more.), receive unique perks in the form of discounts to my website (Your Own 25% Off Code to Tigerpixie .com & Special First Dibs List for New Art!), special items just for you, (Monthly Original Artwork, Sketches, Prints & Gift Sets mailed right to your door) and be entered in giveaways only available for my Patreon subscribers (Giveaways are at least once a month sometime more). Your Patreon pledges will be going specifically to supporting my artwork such as my business related costs, supplies and equipment I need to keep my art career thriving. You are able to edit your subscription or cancel at any time. Thank you so much for looking and hope to see you there! 
78 Tarot Mythical
I got my 78 Tarot Astral Decks in the mail & they are just gorgeous! The artistic talent in this deck is Out of this World! Pun intended 😉  This is the 4th 78 Tarot deck and I have been lucky enough to be a part  of all of  them so far, First Edition - "Four of Wands", Nautical -  "King of  Pentacles", Carnival - "Queen of Cups" and Astral - "Page of  Wands". If you missed out on the 78 Tarot Kickstarters and would like a deck (or two) of your own you can find them for sale online here,  

The Next 78 Tarot Deck!
I'm beyond thrilled to share that I will also be in the 5th 78 Tarot Deck Mythical! Tarot of the Imaginary! I am creating the Ace of Wands! Yes it's another Wands card but I don't mind at all because they have each been so unique. This one will be something I have never painted before but have always wanted to. If you would like to check it out, I have already been sharing some "Behind The Scenes" and "First Look" Posts of my card concept on my Patreon page :)
What's Up Next for Me?
I will be painting my 78 Tarot painting asap! I also have a lot of boring behind the scenes art business stuff that has to be taken care of this month for the new year. I know, I know, It has to be done! :P Then I will be getting ready for my first show of the year. Pensacon is in February & my already made stock is kind of depleted. So I have a lot of prints, jewelry, etc I need to make to be ready for that show :)
I hope you take advantage of my Happy New Year Sales and find something new for yourself & your cat loving friends and family members! 2018 is going to be a Fantastic Year! I can feel it! :D I couldn't do this without you! Thank you so much for your support! As always please feel free to email me, with any questions, suggestions or requests.
