Hi everyone; I have finally decided on a name for my new deck – The Cosmic Sunbeam tarot deck! I wanted to give it a title that was ultimately uplifting and inspiring – like the art is intended to be. I also have a thing about the sun (being a Leo rising) and find it such a positive and beautiful thing to behold… so of course it was important to get that into the name :)
A bold, colourful and inspiring deck with a retro twist
The colours are super bright and bold – and it has a slightly retro feel about it, hence the word “cosmic” – which also gives a nod towards the 1960s / 1970s and everything retro. Although the deck isn’t exactly like 60s/70s design, there is a flavour of it, I think. Additionally, a lot of people have said they think it’s like the work of Mary Blair – a concept artist for classic Disney films like Alice in Wonderland and many more during the 1950s and 60s. Although I was not aware of her before the comparisons, having subsequently looked her gorgeous work up, it is a huge compliment to be compared to her and we all will recognise the pieces she worked on through the Disney films which live on today, as popular as ever.
Kickstarter in planning
My kickstarter is planned for some time in 2023 – so watch this space! You can see all the cards designed so far and sign up at the mailing list here to stay posted. Lots of little perks are planned for subscribers, who will be the very first to find out about the launch and more! Thank you so much for reading, I’m so looking forward to sharing my journey with you. :)
