Tabula Mundi Tarot: formerly Tarot "M"


Called this post "Tarot M" for now, since I wanted to show you the start of my newest deck but it hasn't yet been officially named. Who knows, maybe it will stick!

(Tarot "M" for for now as my initials are MMM - for M.M. Meleen. My first deck was published 11/2/11 and is called the Rosetta Tarot. You can see it here on AT in the deck listings or on my website at http://www.rosettatarot.com/)

Last weekend I finished the Fool card for this new deck, and already have the drawing of the Magus done.

While with The Rosetta Tarot I worked with a different medium for each suit, with this deck all cards will be done in the same medium - india ink on frosted acetate. I also decided to work much larger. With the Rosetta I did the cards actual card size (do not attempt this at home kids, unless you want to ruin your neck and back and eyes!). Needless to say, I would not choose to work actual size in that style again - it was tough!! And hard to get the details I love worked in at that size. These are done on 11x7 sheets, so much nicer to work with!

This is just the artwork for The Fool, with no border or title added yet...hope you like him!
