Lucky Luna is a fantastic bar & restaurant in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and this summer they’ve invited me to transform their dining room into an Urban Tarot installation. There’s still time to stop by and see the show if you’re in the area, and make sure to try their award-winning Bloody Mary. Event announcement is here.
This day has been a long time coming. With the first run of decks on their way from the printer, I’m now finally accepting pre-orders. So for those of you who didn’t get a chance to get in on the original kickstarter but have been waiting for a chance to order a deck, now’s your opportunity.
A project that’s taken me 13 years to complete is finally going to print. The Urban Tarot was funded through Kickstarter in March of 2012 and will soon be available in my Shop. Check back soon for more details.
Work continues apace on my Urban Tarot Deck. One of the most exciting parts of the project so far is how it’s getting me to visit places around my city that I wouldn’t ordinarily go, see things and speak to people I wouldn’t have any reason to talk to otherwise. It’s been said that the series is essentially a love letter to NYC – that’s not wrong. If you’re interested in getting regular updates as the project progresses, make sure to sign up for updates on the project page. All cards completed to date can be viewed there as well.
Thank you, internet! The Urban Tarot Deck has been successfully funded on Kickstarter and work on new cards is underway. It’s a very new experience, finding myself now employed full time illustrating the deck – which was, of course, the plan all along. The first new card is #13 from the Major Arcana, Death. Abby Estes modeled for the card, and I took a series of photos of the card in progress, if you’re curious about my process. The new card, along with all the others done so far, is on the Urban Tarot Project page.
