My piece for the Hero Complex Gallery's upcoming Cardistry show in L.A. 52 artists each design a card to make a full deck. Here is my card, the 6 of Hearts. :heart:

Watercolor, ink, photoshop

Very detailed line art. Very good balance in colors; there is excellent harmony. The arrow piercing both doves is what captures my attention the most. I can guess what symbolism there is in this but there is room for individual interpretation. Very good organization of elements just like in a flower arrangement. And nothing is there for no reason.

For me, this depicts a journey into this woman's soul. She's thinking in a lost love? Or perhaps her soul is bound to someone else's? But she's in thought.

You can stare at this forever and find another meaning.
Great work!

Would a full deck be available for purchase after it is complete? It would make a lovely gift!

A few people have asked me this and I'm not sure quite yet how it works but I'll announce it if you can order decks online. I also have no clue about pricing of the decks or official prints but I'll let everyone know as soon as I do :D Thanks for the interest! :heart:
