Pre-Order the New Mary-El Sketch Tarot Deck Packages!
---
I had a lot of ideas while working on the Mary-el Tarot over the years but I kept telling myself to focus on the task at hand, there would be time to do those later.   Later is finally here and I've decided to start working on a series of tarots that are fun, or interesting, or specialized, or whatever else catches my fancy.  I am now ready to offer for pre-order the first in this series which is a deck made out of the sketches for the Mary-el Tarot.  I find them interesting because they show a bit of a progression and journey themselves, from the very rough early sketches to the highly rendered sketches for the last set of paintings.  A lot of them had a lot more information than what ended up in the final paintings, different subtle figures and ideas - so, I thought I would like to see it as a deck and maybe other people would too, plus its a nice platform to begin discussing different ideas around the Mary-el.   There are some cards in this you won't find in the Mary-el, I lost the original sketches for the 4 of Cups and the 4 of Wands but I had a previous version which everyone liked so I've included those.  The Tower never had an original sketch since I just sat down and did it alla prima in one day (mostly out of fear ha!) so what I did was use some older sketches of Towers I had done.   Likewise, the 7 of Cups was done alla prima, but I had some previous ideas for it and one of those sketches were used. 

What I am going to do is make a limited number of them, 78, which I go through and do some hand coloring so they are unique.  Also to go along with the theme, with one of the pre-order packages you will get one of the original sketches, whichever one you choose.  First come first serve!  Right now these are available as a pre-order and I plan on having them done and ready to ship in 6-8 weeks.

I hope you are as excited about these decks as I am!  I'm really looking forward to the next few I have planned in this series too!! Finally, because of a computer crash this week (ok I spilled coffee in it) I lost all of my old emails and email lists, so if you have previously subscribed to updates with me, I no longer have your address.  If you would like to continue or begin to receive updates with me you can subscribe with the form to the left.
