I did this thing all by myself!

First off, I just want to direct you all over to see what [info]furiosity has got herself up to. She is starting a Tumblr dedicated to Awesome Female Characters, and she is looking for suggestions from TV, Books, Comics, and Video Games. You should go and recommend, and peruse the lists just because reading them is kinda cool.

Secondly, this is my exciting new! I got a box today, and it was full of this thing that I have been working on since September.


That’s right!  This is my first-ever Tarot deck. It’s fairly faithful to the Rider-Waite imagery, but with my own take on the designs. It looks so nice and I’m so excited!

This was such a fun project and I am so gratified to have finished it.  Even if I don’t make any money off of it, I am extremely satisfied and proud that I was able to complete a whole deck and get them printed.  The cards, by the way, are store quality with a glossy coating and 3.5″ x 4.75″ They come shrink-wrapped and I will be putting together a small instructional pamphlet for people who don’t know how to read Tarot already. Here is an illustration of the size:

They will be premiering at MoCCA for $25, and after MoCCA (April 9 & 10), I’ll be selling them online for $25 plus S/H.

EEEEEE so excited!

Not that I'm a tarot fan or anything, so I wouldn't know, but this is both the happiest!!!1!! and most multicultural tarot deck that I've ever seen.

:D

Also: I SEE WHUT U DID THERE with the hearts/clubs/diamonds/spades versus the cups/rods/coins/swords -- nifty!

Yeah! I wanted to try to make a friendly and accessible tarot deck, so, bright colors, happy people, and some familiar symbols. A lot of people don't realize that the suits are the same, just with different shapes to represent them, and seeing the suits they recognize might make them feel more comfortable with Tarot. And yes, one of the reasons I wanted to make my own deck is because it's pretty hard to find one that isn't entirely full of white people!

Thank you for the pimp! ♥ Also I just opened the post to everything because OMG SO MANY AWESOME TV and book characters. :D

Okay, awesome! When I get a chance I am totally giving you some Chinese movies. And you are welcome, of course! I think what you are doing is kickass.

Tarot isn't really my thing, but these are great! I love the illustrations. 10 of Cups is my favorite :D

Thanks! I picked out a few of the ones I like best to show.

OH M GOD THOSE ARE SO CUTE

WILL YOU SELL THEM TO ME WHEN I AM IN NYC THIS WEEKEND

WILL YOU PLEASE

OKAY I WILL MAKE AN EXCEPTION FOR YOU!

We need to plan meetup! Jess might be around as well.

PICTUUUUURES!

I demand pictures of this meeting of titans!

I feel weird saying this about a tarot deck, but: ADORABLE.

Hahaha, thank you! That is the reaction I'm going for.

These are adorable. I'm definitely getting a deck when I can!

Oh my gosh your little people look so happy to be on these tarot cards.

THEY ARE VERY HAPPY TO BE THERE!

I MELT OH GOD WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT!

These are just so cheerful, it's great! Love the diversity represent, too. I honestly don't think I've come across a tarot deck quite like this. Lovely work!

I don't do tarot but I love these. YOUR drawings that I like so much all in a set:) (for some reason, I really love sets of things)

They turned out GREAT, you should be really proud! I bet they sell like hot cakes:)

How many sets did you order to sell? I'm so glad they came in time!!

I got 100 sets! I will probably keep a few just for me.

They look great! And SO HAPPY!

Awww! Happy shiny tarot cards! They look lovely, what an awesome project, well done dudette!
