Penny Dreadful Tarot
The TV show 'Penny Dreadful' has a trading card set coming out soon, and I was asked to design and paint some original Tarot sketch-cards to be included. I drew 22, one for each of the Major Arcana.
The only rule was 'don't draw the actors themselves'. But we could use the idea of their characters; so I blended the traits of the show's characters with the traditional symbolism of Tarot, and then wrapped it up in sexy Victorian costuming, with backgrounds and sets from Season One. The result (I hope) is simultaneously very Tarot-ish and Penny-Dreadful-ish.
