Trans Fatty Tarot

Trans Fatty Tarot

I like making card series when I want to try out a new art style. Tarot cards are my favorite because each one has so many symbols to interpret.

This Trans Fatty Tarot deck that I’m working on is kind of a goof: I tried to include at least the basic symbols that you usually find on a tarot deck. I might write some silly descriptions for each card when I’m done. For now, I’ve finished the Major Arcana (0-21, The Fool-The World) and I’m about to start the four suits. So far I’ve decided on cookies for Coins and cupcakes for Cups, but I’m not sure about the Wands and Swords, because they are similar in shape. Candy canes? Lollipops? Any ideas?

The Giants’ Tarot!

giants' tarot

By Raven Kaldera, published by Asphodel Press.

It’s here! I loved working on this project because I got to use traditional Tarot symbols along with Northern mythology, which I’ll admit I knew very little about before starting. I learned even more from reading the guide that comes with the deck.

These are the three cards I illustrated for the deck.

At least twenty other artists contributed, along with Raven Kaldera, the author, but if you want to see the rest of ’em, you know what to do đŸ˜‰
