Gritty Tarot Re-boot

This is, without a doubt, the most intensive Photoshop project I’ve ever done. I have at least 20 hours into these two images. Prints will be available as soon as I have the pricing down.

I did all the Photoshopping myself, but I owe many thanks to Corvin of Mixed Debris for the raw photos, and to Mary St. Sin and Sir Mark Bruback for standing still longer than Adam and Eve probably ever did.

Of course these pieces are based on Pamela Coleman Smith’s original designs for the Rider-Waite tarot. The card borders are from scanned images of my 1971 deck.

By the Gods, this was fun. I think I’ll do an entire deck. At this rate, it’ll be ready for pre-orders around 2025. Anyone want to sit for photos?
