Allow me to speak about the 78 Tarot project, an international collaborative endeavor in which 78 (really, 80) artists from all over the world gather and create ONE tarot card each, out of a full 78-card traditional deck. The final deck is then produced as a high-quality high-end collectible product, which can appeal both to people who are using tarot AND to fantasy or symbolic art collectors. An art book also comes along the deck in the "deluxe" edition.

This huge project is being led by two wonderful ladies, Kayti Welsh and Delphine Demers Griffin, with the help of Trish Sullivan as a community manager. And believe me, dealing with 80 artists with the aim of producing a unique product within a fixed time frame is no small feat. A bit like herding cats, as the saying goes. And some of the contributors (many, in fact), are real world-class names in the fantasy genre: Amy Brown, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, Selina Fenech, Poul Dohle, Eny Guerrero, Larry Elmore (yes, THE Larry Elmore from Dragonlance), to name but a few.


The link to the fundraising campaign is right below:
www.kickstarter.com/projects/k…

The project IS FUNDED already. And as I write, only 12 hours are left to contribute and get a chance to purchase this one-of-a-king product based on collaboration and sharing  between artists and tarot lovers of all nationalities, sensibilities and styles. But you can still help IMPROVE the final printed result by backing the project and helping it reach the next extended threshold, which will allow the project managers to still improve the print quality and size of the deck. And guess what ? A I write, once again, we are less than $1000 away from the $30,000 milestone, at which point a HUGE surprise upgrade will be made.

So spread the word, visit the Kickstarter page and help us create this amazing product.

This is my first incursion into the mystical world of Tarot card illustration. This image is my contribution to the 78 Tarot project, an international collaborative endeavor in which 78 (really, 80) artists from all over the world gather and create ONE tarot card each, out of a full 78-card traditional deck. This huge project is being led by two wonderful ladies, Kayti Welsh and Delphine Demers Griffin, with the help of Trish Sullivan as a community manager. And believe me, dealing with 80 artists with the aim of producing a unique product within a fixed time frame is no small feat. A bit like herding cats, as the saying goes. And some of the contributors (many, in fact), are real world-class names in the fantasy genre: Amy Brown, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, Selina Fenech, Poul Dohle, Eny Guerrero, Larry Elmore (yes, THE Larry Elmore from Dragonlance), to name but a few.

So here is my small contribution to that collective endeavor. I hope you like it, and connect with the symbolism behind the elements present in the picture.

Oh, and in case you read this in time: Here is the link to the Kickstater page where you can check (and order) the full deck. Hurry up, the fundraising campaign ends soon ! :)

Coucou!

Et beh dis donc, la galerie s'est pas mal garnie et c'est beaucoup plus jolie ça me rend jalouse ^^

Par contre "Back from the dead" depuis décembre 2013 ça me rappelle quelqu'un :D

Qui malheureusement doit encore rester dead pour encore au moins 6 à 7 mois... Ça commence à faire long mais bon quand on a pas le choix...

Fin bref, keep it on!

Mais je ne suis pas là :(

Hey La Plume, où étais-tu passée ?
Content d'avoir de tes nouvelles. Je passe maintenant assez peu sur DA, comme tu le vois. Plusieurs raisons, mais c'est compliqué, on pourra en parler calmement une fois. Tu n'es pas sur Facebook, par hasard ? C'est là maintenant que "j'officie" le plus.
Envoie quelques nouvelles en MP quand tu en auras le temps.

Bon courage et à très vite, j'espère. :)
