The deck started out small, and was meant for personal use only, but it transformed itself many times as I went along. It soon became huge and MESSY!!! And that is OK, as the process for creating it felt huge and messy. There was lots of scribbling and mistakes and I didn’t always like theContinue reading “How Inner Child Artist Oracle Came To Be: The Progression of the Process is Sticky Sometimes”

Inner Child Artist Oracle is Done, Diddly-Un!!!!
This deck is a culmination of everything I’ve ever done in my entire life, from teaching elementary school art , to messing around with graphic design and websites, marketing and advertising, to storytelling and journaling, to card creation, etc.! I have had so many random opportunities to work in so many different fields, and IContinue reading “Inner Child Artist Oracle is Done, Diddly-Un!!!!”
Dude, this is happening!
I have to finish editing 22 stories in the guidebook for Inner Child Artist Oracle. The stories are from my inner child’s perspective, and some of them are not easy to write, and even harder to read. We all have our stories. So this is me, wearing my heart on my sleeve, as I’m sharingContinue reading “Dude, this is happening!”
Inner Child Artist Oracle by CooptyLew
I am back to work on my new Oracle deck! Coming to Kickstarter so soon!
Drawing is the perfect distraction!
What in the hell would I do, on those days when my head spins and spins with shit I can’t control, without art to distract me? I would definitely be on lock down somewhere, just sayin’. It’s also a good reminder. We can thank God for our creativity on the days when we can’t findContinue reading “Drawing is the perfect distraction!”
Some draw it out; Others sing it…
My son sings it. And he’s so good. I love it. I think it’s important. And beautiful. ❤️
I wrote my Dad’s obituary! 😭
Being the first born child sucks ass! Not only did I arrange for my Dad’s cremation today, I was also appointed as planner of his Celebration of Life and also as writer of his obituary. I only recorded it so that I could type it quickly without looking back-and-forth at my little piece of paper.Continue reading “I wrote my Dad’s obituary! 😭”
Art therapy is the shit, (if anything is at this point…)
On the evening of my dad’s death, I was drawing. I was practicing facial expressions, like I do every night, and I usually throw them away, but this night was different. What I drew on this night reminded me of what I gave my dad for Father’s Day last year… it had similar faces, butContinue reading “Art therapy is the shit, (if anything is at this point…)”
Drawing it out… 😭
My dad has been in ICU for a week now. He has to a have a defibrillater implanted into his heart tomorrow morning, while his blood pressure stays at a very low rate. I’m worried. I am so fucking scared of facing life on Earth without him. I can’t stand the thought of losing him,Continue reading “Drawing it out… 😭”
Characters just fall off my brush!
This is a video of my artwork from 2016 to present.
The Tarot Embodiment… My very personal project! I have been working on this deck for over a year now. It is on my original artwork. It is shocking how scared a person (ME!) can be to put themselves out there. It is really a road traveled by only the fierce! 😚 I have no ideaContinue reading “Tarot Embodiment”

Commissioned Worker, I am…
Hey Guys! I love drawing people and I have gotten good enough that I am able to catch a likeness to them. When I show people my work, I always get asked to draw for them. It is flattering and it is a lot of work! But, I do like it (as my work!) andContinue reading “Commissioned Worker, I am…”
She Thinks She’s a Fucking Kite
I drew my niece tonight. She didn’t call me for Mother’s Day. She has called me every Mother’s Day since her mom died, three years ago, but she didn’t call this year. And I know why… It doesn’t make me happy. I used to think she was a heroin addict, but I know now thatContinue reading “She Thinks She’s a Fucking Kite”

Emotional Well-Being Spreads
Tarot can be used for many, many purposes. One of my favorite uses for Tarot is to help me escape “crazy brain.” When anxiety and fear take over, it is hard to sometimes think rationally and actually see a situation for what it really is. In situations like this, I will pull out my TarotContinue reading “Emotional Well-Being Spreads”

Happy Birthday in Heaven!
Not a day goes by that I don’t wish for just one more moment with her! My sister would have had her 48th birthday today. We celebrate nonetheless. It is so hard. It is so hard to live without her. It is so hard to celebrate her in her absence. And, unbelievably… ItContinue reading “Happy Birthday in Heaven!”
