Art in all its forms has always been a fascination for me. It was always my favorite class throughout school.

But much to my disappointment, aside from the very rare piece of inspired work most of my art consists of stick figures and lollipop trees. So I decided to get into graphic arts, concentrating on the lab work, design layout, and printing press.

It was here that I discovered I had a certain talent for the augmentation and manipulation of existing imagery. With the advent of the computer age the lab work and printing press unfortunately no longer exist in a widely used format but the layout design still does. And along with the new technology comes the ability to augment And manipulate existing imagery in an unparalleled fashion to anything in the past. But as I am not actually drawing anything I felt the nomenclature of a graphic artist did not quite fit, so I prefer to refer to what I do and what I am as a Graphics Engineer TM.

I have had some moderate success through the decades designing flyers for various theatrical venues and being the head publicity designer for Albatross Productions in Chicago, and doing some publicity work for my band The Plastic Neo-Pseudo Fascist Bastards. This work carried on through the 1990’s where I then got a gig designing T-shirts for Absolute Pleasure T-shirts in Colorado. And a few short years later had the honor of designing and laying out the cover and booklet to the vinyl LP The Rocky Horror 20th Anniversary Fan Tribute Album.

I eventually discovered the world of the fractal art and have been having a great deal of fun with it. You can check out the results here.

Not too long ago an old friend of mine, Edmund Zebrowski, convinced me to take on the hobby of designing Tarot cards. My most recent project in this area of art is a Tarot Deck based on World War 2.

The Magician

From an upcoming deck I am making based on WWII. The working title of the deck is 'The Tarot of WWII: In Memory of Bravery and Reconciliation'. 

This is a seemingly strange subject for Tarot imagery, that being World War II. I say 'seemingly' because for thousands of years the implications of Krishna speaking the Bhagavad-gita to his friend Arjuna on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra has been a template for how one might live, view and navigate life. 

The individual personalities of the Major Arcana have been matched to personality analogs of WWII (the archetypes of the cards, and the modern equivalent). What they were in real life, so they are represented here, with the allies on the more pleasing cards and the axis... not so much. (I can’t take credit for that perspective, it’s life and history that made this viewpoint come alive in the making of this deck because that is the truth of the events as they unfolded.) Someone with knowledge of Tarot and WWII would be able to look at the images and immediately get a correlation. Although for the casual observer, some of the imagery will still stir something in the right direction.

This deck is not intended to glorify the war, it is instead capturing the key figures and events responsible for great good and evil, for situations and decisions, and applying them to the archetypes of the cards to invoke similar meanings. And reflect that life has a good, a bad and a gray because from the beginning of time the world has been beautiful and horrible, full of the truly heroic and truly horrific. This was also a time in which all that was good in the world stood up and drew a line and proclaimed "NO MORE!" That is also reflected in this project. There is great good and great evil in the world around us and inside us. And more times than not, this is reflected in readings. 

This deck is an attempt to hold a contemporary mirror to life, using one of our greatest modern conflicts as a poignant metaphysical exercise.

And if a new generation learns anything from this project, and this time in history, of what to avoid and what to embrace from it, I am fine with that. 


“I do admit that the idea of this deck at first seems shocking and completely 'un-tarot'. However, I think the deck leads to some great ways of seeing the deck in real-world situations. Using great conflicts such as wars to understand and explain spiritual matters has been around since the Bhagavad Gita. What good is tarot if it can't help us to understand the world around us.” 

— EDMUND ZEBROWSKI, Creator of ‘Pixie’s Astounding Lenormand’ 


“This Tarot is a reminder of no matter what happens we can and do get through life the best way we can.  And it also is giving us another perspective on helping ourselves and others, no matter what horrors or difficulties we have in our lives we can pull through, strong and resilient.” 

— THOUGHTFULL,  from The Cartomancy Forum
