The World Card – Sketches and Notes

The World Card - Guardian Spirit - Lion
The Chibi Tarot Major Arcana is coming to a close, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve finished the Chariot and started work on the World Card.

Tarot Major Arcana - The Hanged Man as drawn by my son
A few months ago my 4-year-old son took to the page and drew three of the tarot’s major arcana: the Sun, the Emperor and the Hanged Man. The results are below. Here’s what he had to say about the cards: Those are beautiful cards. Them mean the truth and prosperity. (You can see the originals […]

The Hanged Man and the Material World: Or the Time I Gave Away a Car

The (Yamabushi) Hermit

Originally I’d intended my next card after the High Priestess to be the Lovers. I really enjoy the layout of that card, and I plan on having it echo both the Hierophant and the Devil, as it does in the Waite-Smith, with the triangular staging of the three figures. But when it came right down […]
