Below I’ve got some thumbnails (no larger images) of the petal etc. work that I’ve been up to. I was inspired by my sweetie’s folky button up shirt and looked up some folk flower designs used in fabric patterns. I got inspired by a particular graphic style of flower where the elements never touch and create a line likeness in negative space.
I liked how the centers of the flowers looked like stones. I have been interested in tarot and I felt this motif was well on its way to create the imagery for the cards. I added currents and rainbows to the petals and stones to have the four suits.
The tarot deck is mostly done. I just need to produce it on card stock. The prototype has been a pleasure to use. I find it surprisingly helpful and lovely.
