Mad Dash to the Tarot Card Finish Line by Valerie Day

Wow, what a project I've undertaken. The picture below is an example of the ammount of art that goes into making an 80-something card, fully-illustrated tarot deck... I'm really looking forward to holding the end product in my hand.

The energy I've put into these freaking cards is intense. Approaching about a month of production at the moment.

They will be for sale within a couple of days, as I get them completed.

So Excited!!

Sketchblog issue #1 - 10/21/15 by Valerie Day

There comes a time in the midst of several serious art projects, where one has to take a breather. When you spend more than two days on something, it starts to get a little stale, so sometimes it's necessary to step back and just draw. Draw something that you don't have to care about so the stress element of "Will this pen line mess up the whole drawing" is alleviated.

This sketch is from last night. In the midst of working on the back-side of an album cover piece, I took a break and sorta half drew out a concept.

The six armed thing is definitely fun. We'll see if this turns into something further down the road...
