polymer clay tarot art [06 Aug 2008|03:28pm]

Hi, all. I want to share the tarot art I'm working on. I have four pieces done so far. Eventually, I'd like to make prints for a full deck. Obviously, I have a long way to go. These are made primarily with polymer clay with some other mixed media elements added. All comments are welcomed. Thanks!

Whispering Tarot by Elizabeth Hazel [19 Jul 2008|12:37pm]

I just got notification of the Summer 2008 American Tarot Association's Quarterly Journal. No one was happier than I when Liz Hazel agreed to take this project off my hands. While I enjoyed gathering the articles, Liz has transformed this members-only publication into a classy, quality production. You could tell with her first offering that she was aiming for a magazine style that would give experienced and beginning readers in-depth information.

When I opened up my QJ, I saw an announcement that read:

The Whispering Tarot by Elizabeth Hazel was released in late June 2008. This is a signed, limited edition of 500 decks. Copies are available at www.kozmic-kitchen.com. A review of the deck will be in the QJ Fall 2008 issue.

To see what I thought of this deck, check out my most recent blog.

Well, nothing actualy sold at demicon so I still have the entire set.
Wish I had a decent sized scaner - something that could handle a 16x20 painting.

sigh I hate waiting [07 Dec 2007|03:59pm]

I wonder, does anyone know how long the tipical wait is to hear back from a publisher?
I know I'm being very impatiant but after all I've spent the last 6 years on The Essance Tarot and got a lot riding on it.

The sooner I have a publisher, the sooner it will be in stores, the sooner I can move to a place thats all my own.
The sooner I can figure out my next project.

Four of Pentacles [29 Sep 2007|11:34pm]


The four of pentacles lords over plenty, but still wants more: he stares at his glittering treasures with dissatisfaction. A hording dragon coils around him, representing his greed. It both feeds from and contributes to his desires until the difference is imperceivable. While he's looking away, it slips another sphere into the crook of his arm.

So here's the next drawing for my tarot deck, which I plan on completing SOMEDAY. I imagine that day is very far away.

The mural crown in the Rider-Waite system is pretty much the only detail that I've stuck to -- the symbolism attached to it in heraldry is very faithful to the meaning of the four of pentacles.

Cards I've Done So Far:

The Empress
The King of Wands
The Page of Wands
The Hierophant
The Five of Pentacles
The Five of Wands
The Four of Pentacles
