        —Eugène Delacroix
      • A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

Seeing my city from new angles

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.

The First New Card is Up

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.
