My recent forays into non-representational drawing made me wonder: what would the Tarot look like if I stopped trying to make the cards entirely representational. What if, instead of a hand holding a wand, I made an object that could be construed as a hand?
This is what happened.
Over the next ten or so weeks, I will be developing a new Tarot deck from the ground up: The Spinoolean Tarot. It is the first work to intentionally bear the name of this venue, my current artistic endeavor. I'm using the Rider Tarot Deck published by US Games Systems as a model for the cards, content, and layout. Expect diversions, however. Lots of them.
(During the writing of the text for this blog, including the subject, I have mistyped "Wand" as "Want" every time. Weird.)
