I’m starting my Tarot project with these two. It’s off to a weirdly appropriate start. I am starting with the Trump cards. I wanted to get The Fool (0) out of the way first, but I was working on the templates for the frame, illustrating the suit motifs, and handwriting the cards at the same time so… that one’s going through another draft.
