New project: Green Witch Tarot

Sometimes a dream job appears in your inbox! I recently signed a contract with Llewellyn Publishing to illustrate a full tarot deck named The Green Witch Tarot, authored by Ann Moura.

I will have a little over a year to complete the 79 illustrations for the job, it’s going to be challenging and will also push my artwork to new heights. So far I have a handful of the cards done. I was honestly a little intimidated by the scope of the project at first. I have not previously worked on a project of this scale, but it is a wonderful opportunity and I am very excited about it.

The publisher has granted me permission to share my progress along the way so I will be posting updates as the illustrations come together. The author Ann Moura has done a wonderful job of providing me with rich descriptions that I will follow for the illustrations. The tarot deck will rely on nature, herbs, plants and folk magic with rustic charm.

Stay tuned!
