The Green Wolf
How would you describe your business?
The Green Wolf is the aegis for all of my creative efforts. I am a pagan author with several books published via Llewellyn Worldwide and Immanion/Megalithica. I am also an artist working with hides, bones and other natural materials; I create a wide variety of costumes, ritual tools and other sacred art. I am the creator of the Tarot of Bones, a natural history themed divination set due put in Summer 2016. And I am the organizer for Curious Gallery, a two-day arts festival in Portland, OR celebrating cabinets of curiosity and their contents.
What inspired you to start this business?
I began making my artwork in 1998. I mostly did it as a hobby for a few years, and then in the mid-2000s upgraded to a proper business with a license and more infrastructure. My first book came out in 2006 so I was able to leverage the Green Wolf as a promotional platform for that. And I have been 100% self-employed since September 2011, so it’s my primary form of income.
Where can we find your business?
No brick and mortar store, but the main website is http://www.thegreenwolf.com. Auxiliary websites include http://www.thetarotofbones.com and http://www.curiousgallerypdx.com. My Etsy shop is located at http://thegreenwolf.etsy.com and my eBay store is at http://stores.ebay.com/thegreenwolfportland
I also vend at a wide variety of events in the Northwest US, from FaerieWorlds to Sakura-Con, PaganFaire to the Northwest Tarot Symposium, and many more.
Do you offer wholesale, drop shipping, affiliate or other programs?
Not currently, though I will have wholesale and consignment information for the Tarot of Bones once it’s out in Summer 2016. I am also very interested in consigning my art through brick and mortar stores; interested shop owners can contact me at lupa.greenwolf(at)gmail.com
