Advice for Creating a Digital Collage Deck


I've been thinking of doing my own tarot deck after getting inspiration from the tarot art of Seth Styles:

I'm thinking of taking mine from dream symbolism that is personal to me. 78 cards seems a bit daunting so I might start with just major arcana and, if I'm still interested, build from there. I'm also thinking of doing mine as sort of collage art, maybe using Photoshop to make digital collages. Any advice from anyone that's already made their own deck? I'm really excited but just don't want to burn myself out.


Hi- I created a deck using collage. It called The Cult of Weimar Tarot and you can see it here:

I built a whole web site about the time place and people that inspired the deck, Weimar Berlin in the 1920's. The link I gave you goes directly to the page where I describe the different elements that are in each card.

I had a lot of fun creating it. It took about a year. I learned a lot about a lot of things. And I still am learning a lot.

I don't know what advice to give you except stay curious about your topic and ideas and materials and inspiration will be your reward.


Wow, thanks to both of you! The Weimar deck is incredible! Fantastic job - so much emotion and aesthetic!

Thanks for the copyright site too! I'm pretty much interested in designing my deck for personal use as opposed to commercial but I'm still going to give it a read just to make sure everything's on the up and up!
