R.M. TAROT DECK
2011 - 2014
The R.M. Tarot (the Red Magician's Tarot) is a 78-card deck constructed in the traditional format of five suits -
each card along with its number and title. Drawing inspiration from dream imagery and influenced by a range of artistic movements, visually this deck is a syncretization of ancient
Originally, the R.M. Tarot was created for my own
personal use. However, as I shared the imagery with
friends and other tarot enthusiasts, many began to
inquire about obtaining their own copies.
Luckily, a successful crowdfunding campaign via Kickstarter provided me with enough money to produce a limited
edition of 100 decks.
Ironically, I hadn't planned on making an entire tarot deck on my own! What began in 2011 as small experiments of collage on artist trading cards developed into the personal challenge of creating a deck that reflected my own understanding of the tarot. Having used various decks over the years, I'd reached a point where I was no longer satisfied with others' cards. I felt that I needed something more personal and the only way to get it was to make my own! Happily, collage turned out to be the perfect medium for me. After three and a half years, the R.M. Tarot was complete and available to others in a limited edition.
