Design-a-Tarot

I just started working on some pretty cool tarot cards! I’ve always found them interesting so I’m giving it a shot. I will be creating the Major Arcana and still not sure if to work on the Wands, Cups, Swords and Coins as well, or to finish the deck as playing cards. We shall see …

So far I have The Fool, The Magician, The High Priestess and Death. I wanted to work around the idea of a design-oriented collage for each card. The connection between the meaning of the card and the design should be subtle, but translates well. I am pretty sure this is going to be a kick-ass deck!

Since I am no expert on tarot it will take a lot of fun research on each section and card. Actually, I am nowhere near an expert, I am more like a fan that knows almost nothing about the subject, but admires the concept. So with that said I am totally looking forward learning about it as I design it. I’ll keep you posted and maybe you can soon come to me for some tarot readings … I’m kidding. OR AM I?

Check out what I have so far and let me know what you think!
