  1. Ah! Thank you so much for sharing this artist! I’m blown away by his art and SAD that I can’t immediately go purchase this deck! His art this gorgeous blend of Alphonse Mucha and Hayao Miyazaki with a splash of Arthur Rackham. I absolutely love it.

  2. These are such gorgeous, gorgeous cards. Even in black and white, they’re lovely, but with color–WOW.

    “So when I talk about ‘personal narratives’, for me this is the idea of “showing” and not “telling.” Especially with the tarot illustrations, there are lots of symbols that need to be incorporated like a text. There are some superfluous elements of images here and there for embellishment, but I have to make sure each picture can be “read”. It’s sort of like writing a beautifully succinct academic text and then refining it by removing the extraneous purple prose.”

    I think this is what I’m enjoying most about learning tarot–learning to pick up on and read these symbols. It’s like learning a new language and accessing a new mode of thought all in one, and I love it!

    • Yeah totally. Some decks are so heavy with symbols it’s alienating at first…and then so satisfying when you start to understand them. I love the idea that the artist is trying to convey secret messages to me, hidden in their artwork. And best of all, it’s totally up to you how to read them…once that deck is in your hands it’s really beyond the artists’ control (like any good work of literature I think.)

    Oh my, I love what he says about consideration, and seeing himself and the people he loves in his fantasy life! Gorgeous cards, too 😀 Will definitely watch this space for the completed deck!

    • Yes – this idea of honouring the people you love (and yourself) by allowing them to be part of your imagined, ideal world seems so obvious, but maybe so hard to do – especially with the internalised racism Trung talks about:

      But that’s the reality for many people of color – we internalize the idea that we are not considered people worthy of space in our own minds.

  4. I am so so so very in love with this deck and am definitely buying it when it’s released– his artwork is so beautiful!

    I think one of the reasons I love his work so much is because I studied art history in high school and am now studying sociology and Latin American Studies in college; all of my personal studies are now tending towards histories of power and oppression discourses and fairy tales and the construction of identity and media– so I love his combination of interests/backgrounds, because I love finding that I’m not the only one who thinks that combo works well together!

  5. What a fabulous interview. The deck is absolutely stunning — I’m not familiar with the artists he’s referencing, but it’s so thoughtful and eye-capturing. “Death” is also a personal favorite of mine right now, and his interpretation of it absolutely blew me away.

    Going to follow on social media immediately!

    Very colorful and cool. I’m really into his Hermit, and I like the thoughts behind his Death card. Would definitely buy a deck!

  7. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for sharing this! This deck is beautiful–I’d love to get my hands on it! I’m fairly new to the study of tarot, and one of the first things that struck me when researching decks was their homogeneity. We live in such a diverse, vibrant world! Honestly, it saddens me that people of color don’t see themselves represented, and that this lack of representation affects self-conception so drastically (Benebell Wen just wrote an enlightening blog post regarding this). It’s so important that we embrace diversity! More diversity in decks, please!
