Because I've been lucky enough to be involved with the creation of so many tarot decks, I've learned that there are many ways to approach it. Because most people prefer Rider-Waite-Smith (RWS) -style decks, that is Llewellyn's main focus. The challenge is bringing enough freshness to the new deck without deviating so far it can no longer be recognized as an RWS-style deck. Llewellyn asked me to design a new, wizard-themed tarot. I was free to take the concept in any direction I wanted. My first instinct was the four-house school approach because I love it, and also four suits, four houses; it is a natural blending. But it has been done and done very well. I believe ideas can be explored ...

My journey through the Forest of Enchantment began early in 2015, when the Llewellyn Art Department suggested that, as I had been illustrating books for Llewellyn for some years, I might like to work on a full tarot deck of 78 paintings. Many years ago, I spent time with the Motherpeace Tarot and the Thoth Tarot (painted by Lady Frieda Harris), and I have always admired the artistry of the cards, but I wouldn't consider myself to be at all fluent in the language of tarot. So, the suggestion that I create a deck percolated for a while, as I considered what I could possibly offer such an awesome project? Then came the idea that I should collaborate with Lunaea Weatherstone, a writer and ...
