Hello all!
I just started a few weeks ago making an abstract Tarot deck for my graphic design class. I am currently in the stage of making the base for each card. Soon a typographic system will be implemented in some way. If you like, I can keep you all posted.

This is the Hanged Man

I am using a paper marbling technique called Suminagashi, then scanning in the images and applying the same filter to each card. The ink colors and amount of ink were determined by rolling dice.

Also I'm up for answering any questions!

Everyone here is doing beautiful things.

Hiya-
I really would like to. And I plan to.

I'm going to make a 1-off deck just for class, though. Probably after critique on that I will refine it further (I am also writing a short intro) and see what I can do.

Thanks for your interest!
