About

COLORED CARDS

First, I'm making 78 black and white drawings traced from the Rider Waite Smith deck, using Photoshop and my endless patience.

I then color the card carefully.

  Does that sound easy?

 (If at first you don't succeed, keep bashing your head against the wall until it seems right, remembering art is never really done...)

 I'll show you a few of the cards I'm working on now:

 Some wands:

 Here is the postcard being offered as Reward #1:

When done, the cards will be ready for publication in hard copy. I have a preliminary quote of just under $5,000 for printing 750 copies from Print Ninja as follows :

Tarot size cards Size: 2.75" x 4.75"

80 cards

Blue Core Standard 350 GSM

1 card back

Varnish finish

Tuck box, gloss varnish finish

Hard copy proof

BLACK AND WHITE OUTLINES

The black and white outlines won't be complete until the coloring is complete. Then they can be published for the use of others who could use them to color their own decks in Photoshop or other electronic applications. This will require preparation of the application and legal protections. Perhaps in the future they could also be made into a coloring book.

SOUND LIKE FUN?

Risks and challenges

I have never published a deck of cards before. While I believe the graphics are solid, and I have chosen a reputable publishing house which is familiar with just this kind of product, the process is new to me. However, I was once a Project Manager for a large legal electronic publishing company, and solving problems is well within my wheelhouse, so I will take each issue as it arises and arrive at appropriate solutions. Producing tarot decks has certainly been done before and I am confident I can do it too!
