Card description
This Four of Cups was my first attempt using Photoshop. The card shows a shadowy, torpid figure lodged motionless in a decomposing piece of driftwood. There are four golden cups, one of which is being offered by an entity. The figure makes no attempt to retrieve or accept the gift of the cups being offered, but instead remains aloof and lifeless.

Card meaning

The Four of Cups generally means a time of self-absorption, which can range anywhere from healthy introspection to apathy, depression, and narcissism. This state of mind can often keep us from accepting the gifts and blessings offered to us. Love, answers, and opportunities go unnoticed or are ignored because we are too self-consumed to see them.

Artist bio

I live in a small town in West Virginia in the middle of the Bible belt, where many people still believe Reflexology and Yoga are satanic practices. I have been collecting tarot for many years, but without my fellow tarot collectors on the web I would feel completely isolated. I don
t read the cards, per se, but I do perform tarot spells for friends and family using the cards, usually with surprisingly effective results. However, it is my love for the tarot artwork that keeps me an avid collector.

Card description:
King Of Pentacles. The king enjoys the abundance of his kingdom.
Joe: I started out drawing the concept out on several different papers till the right one popped out. Than I took that concept and detailed it further using some of the elements from Rider-White Tarot. I than used Aviary to detail the sky background and the tremulous earth.

Card meaning: "Lord of the wild and fertile land"
The king of pentacles is less of a warrior and is more like a feudal king over seeing his fertile lands.His success comes more from instinct then intellect and his choices are practical.

Artist bio
:
Joseph Barker is the artist who created the card.Joe is a licensed massage therapist and has a business called "Massage Me L.A."
Mike Barker is Joes father and buys and sells tarot.

This from starlightexp: 


Card description

6 of Wands- The silhouette of a lion surveys his realm victoriously. For him, his sights are set on the whole of his world. Jupiter , the great benefactor surrounds his head in an ever expanding vision of where he can go next. This is one of those cards that fit’s me astrologically and I’ve just grown to love. The style is one of great contrast of bold bright colors. Many thanks to photoshop.

9 of Pents- Here we have Venus in Capricorn. A joyful fountain of bliss, one of the Fountain of Prosperity of one will.  I’ve always looked at the card as being able to  finally take in the wonders the world has to offer.  The picture is one of Buckingham Fountain here in Chicago that I took several years ago, layered with a pentagram and of course Venus shining down.

5 of Swords- Venus in Aquarius. A battle is over and a victor is declared but who was it, where are they now, who won or lost? The darken sky can be seen as oncoming or lifting.  I wanted this card to have a feeling of clouded mystery about it, because for me it’s about things that come out of nowhere be it losses or victories. Did the battle happen in the Sea of Emotion, or did one loose their footing on the rocks?

Artist bio
Edmund is a happy, crafty little gay pagan that lives with his husband and two cats and tends his herb garden. He’s been reading tarot since high school but only recently got more decks other then his Robin Wood to stop his friend Nicky from laughing at him.

Edmund, you wrote about yourself "He's been reading tarot since high school but only recently got more decks other then his Robin Wood to stop his friend Nicky from laughing at him" but don't you know that Nicky is not laughing *at* you, she's laughing *with* you? At least that's what she tells me when I yell at her...
