Changing Up the Deck

June 13th, 2024 Comments Off on Changing Up the Deck

Have you noticed that I’ve been slowly replacing the images of The Tarot Room’s Tarot Cards of the Day? If you’re a regular visitor, you probably have. I started doing this sometime back in May when I decided that I was sick of the old images.

Don’t get me wrong, I like my old Georgie’s Tarot … I even had printed copies made and gave them out to friends and family. It was the first deck I ever drew. But I drew it 22 years ago when I first learnt to draw on the computer (not to mention, when I was still learning to draw in general). So I thought it was time for a bit of a renewal.

The pictures I’ve been drawing to replace the old ones copy the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot ,just as Georgie’s Tarot did. The biggest difference is that they were drawn by hand on paper, much more quickly, and with far less angst over each stroke. I used water-colour pencils and my favourite black ink brush pen. The new cards are a little sloppier, but maybe more fun. Or at least I think so.

It’s likely that’ll I’ll be redrawing some of these new images as I go along. I’ll keep doing it till I’m satisfied.

So don’t be surprised if a card you’ve been accustomed to seeing suddenly changes its look … not that you would be, just thought I’d mention it.

Hope your day is good.
