The Crimson Coil Tarot


The Crimson Coil Tarot is a deck whose imagery is inspired by my dark fantasy novel, The Crimson Coil. Once completed, it will be a fully realized, functional tarot complete with its own system of symbolic correspondences related to settings, characters and mythologies present in the book, but that are also informed by various currents within and related to the Western Mystery Tradition at large. 

As with many decks, The Crimson Coil Tarot will consist of 78 total cards, 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana. Each card starts with a pencil drawing which is then digitally finished. I do all the art, graphic design and finishing work myself. I started the deck in 2018 and I expect it to be finished by the end of 2020 at which point I will publish and release it.

I upload cards for viewing as I complete them and occasionally, I update or revise cards. I would welcome any feedback along the way.
