This is an installment of a daily project I’m launching for the month of October. I’ll create work revolving around the theme of identity and regrowth and I’ll update my blog with behind the scenes content, process, and finished artwork. Click through to read more. Catch up on the ongoing narrative here.
These are some photos I took this morning of my Pagan Otherworlds Tarot Deck created by Uusi. I absolutely love the attention to detail they’ve put into the artwork. I would love to hang some of these as prints in my studio. The cards themselves are wonderful to work with. They’re printed on a beautiful thick card-stock that has a lovely linen texture to it.
I’ve always wanted to create a tarot deck, but I never considered it a viable thing until now. Tarot decks and printers who work exclusively with tarot decks are popping up in so many different places online. This particular tarot deck was a Kickstarter project that I backed last year. I love collecting them. There’s something very beautiful about tarot cards which are created directly by the artist and tarot reader. The Pagan Otherworlds Tarot Deck is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Look at the details!
The Queen of Wands represents fire, intuition, energy, and femininity. She holds a wand, which is masculine, and a sunflower, which is feminine. She represents the balance found between the two. She’s able to run a home, manage a family life, a personal life, and a work life, all with exceptional balance. She’s warmth and creativity personified. In a reading, she can represent an optimism and a determination to follow your dreams, however big they may be.
