The Shadow of Oz

Fans of Dorothy and The Wizard of Oz might be interested in this Tarot Kickstarter project – The Shadow of Oz by Anna and Mark, the Illogical Associates.

As the creators of The Wizard of Oz inspired comic book Dorothy, Anna and Mark seem especially suited to making this deck a reality, and they’ve gathered together a truly impressive group of comic book artists to help them.

Take a look at their video below, and visit The Shadow of Oz project page to learn more.

The Elora Tarot Project

September 23rd, 2013 § 4 comments § permalink

I love group Tarot decks, and the new Elora Tarot Project, curated by Shelley Carter, is no exception.

After a Tarot trip to Italy in 2011, Carter returned home to Elora, Ontario inspired to make her own deck, or more specifically, a ‘made in Elora’ deck.

She passed the idea by some artist friends of hers, and next thing you know, the Elora Tarot Project was born.

You can see images of the cards at the Elora Tarot Project website, where you’re also able to purchase a copy of this beautiful deck.

But if you’re lucky enough to be in the Southern Ontario area, you can also see the Elora Tarot Project in person.

An exhibit of all the original artwork is running now through November 3rd at the Wellington County Museum and Archives.

Sounds like a good excuse for a day trip.

Tarot Waiting To Happen – a deck by Andrew McGregor

September 10th, 2013 § 2 comments § permalink

Tarot Waiting to Happen is a brand new, very limited edition Majors-only deck by Andrew McGregor of The Hermit’s Lamp, and it’s fantastic!!

Though it follows a traditional Tarot storyline, it does so by looking at the moments just before the situations we usually see portrayed in the cards. Times like Justice reading up on a decision before trial, or the Emperor as he’s putting on his clothes.

We even see what might have got the Hanged Man swinging.

The idea is fabulous, and I love the black and white line drawings. The only thing I could wish for is that McGregor follows this deck up with a 78-card version.

To see images of all the cards, and to order a copy of your own, visit The Hermit’s Lamp website.

The incomparable Ciro Marchetti has sadly decided to retire from the world of Tarot, but the incredible decks and Tarot characters he’s created will continue spreading their magic for many years to come.

The video below is a montage of some of that magic. It’s a collection of Ciro’s own favourites as first shown to his lucky audience at last month’s Readers’ Studio 2013.

Take a look. They’re beautiful!!

Mountain View Tarot

Unfortunately, the 3rd Edition of the Mountain Dream Tarot is already sold out, but you still might want to take a look at this video Bea Nettles made about her deck a few years back.

I wish I’d been quicker. I’d love to have a copy.

A Knight Is Born …

August 10th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

I love watching videos of artists creating their art. And it can be especially fun if they’re creating Tarot art.

The video below by Claudia, aka Reino, is just that – Tarot art manifesting before our very eyes.

Reino works in multi-media and is in the process of making her Dharma Tarot.

Watch her in action as she creates the Knight of Wands. I really like it.
