I’ve created a tarot deck! This was actually a custom project for a man in New York, who over the course of the year waited patiently while I slowly worked on this project – something I’ve wanted to do for ages, but finally was asked to, so I couldn’t put it off any longer! This is a 22-card deck, of the Major Arcana.
Painted on watercolor paper with Windsor & Newton Inks and watercolor paint, backed with thin, thin sheets of wood and painted with gold detailing on the backs and edges.
I tried not to cling too tightly to the symbolism of classic decks, though did pick and choose some odds and ends that I do like.
I am super proud of this deck and sadly sent it off in the mail just a few days ago. I plan on creating a reproduction deck, if only to have one for myself, but possibly to sell, too. 🙂
