Been inspired by James R Eads kickstarter project to make an original tarot card set, because I don’t really have the money to spend on them myself I decided to make my own personal set based on the style. Here’s my version of The Lovers, appropriating work by Gustav Klimt.
Oh my gods. I am so blessed to say the postman brought my dream deck, the Prisma Visions Tarot by @jamesreads today. It feels as if it has always belonged to me and I’m in love with it! The art, presentation, packaging, and shipping was and is nothing short of immaculate. 💖
Once we get more acquainted, I’ll be offering readings by Wednesday or so.
Please feel free to message me if you also have worked with this deck! I would love to hear your thoughts and stories.

It boggles my mind that this is a digital illustration (even though it’s obvious). I guess coming from a fine arts background, I’ve always been much more comfortable with hand-drawing illustrations and working out colors and what-nots on paper instead of on the screen, thus really using the latter only for clean-up and layout. That said, the ephemeral hand-drawn quality coupled with digital precision is so exquisite here, that I’m pretty much sold.
