The Prisma Visions by jamesreads has an interesting, I don’t want to call it a mistake, because for all I know it was intentional, quirk on the Seven of Pentacles compared to every other single card in the deck. Can you see it?
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.
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.

I would just like to send jamesreads my deepest gratitude for sharing with us his beautiful tarot deck and for striving to create such an amazing product with stunning presentation - it truly was well worth the wait. It is so much more than I was hoping or expecting and I am absolutely taken with this deck.
