Hey someone is selling these as magnets at Denver Comic Con. I recognized your art so I thought I would tell you.

(Ps. I have a photo and the name of the store.)

I was thinking you'd be one of the winners. This one was a a very artistic approach. Ah well.

It's still an excellent and funny piece. Jerry and Beth's cards are the funniest in my opinion. ;P

could i ask what your ideas/motivations were for picking each of the familys cards?

Magician, Fool, Temperance, Heirophant, Empress.

Basically I wanted to stick to the human figures in the deck since they would all have the same background template. Tower/World/Sun/etc. would involve me drawing more landscapes to get the point across and making the cards look too different from one another, which I wanted to avoid.

Magician and Fool were pretty obvious. Temperance was just because I immediately got the image of Beth with her surgeon's head mirror in place of the "sign of the sun" and pouring wine instead water, and also it is linked to "accommodating" people. In some interpretations, the Heirophant is linked to weakness, conformity, and marriages. Also "his appearance can show that you are dealing with a force that is not innovative, free-spirited or individual but is instead fixated on the ‘way we have always done things around here’." source

I made Summer the Empress because femininity, "daughter of heaven and earth," blah blah blah. She could've been Judgment or something but I didn't like that imagery quite as much.

Amazing work, I still recognize your style! I hope you win! :D

Thank you so much! :) Sadly I'm not in the top 30 semi-finalists round chosen by deviantart. At least he saw it though.

Aww, well it's a tough competition for sure. Be proud of the fabulous work you did nonetheless!

Wow, I really love this piece. The style is epic and reminds me of tarot cards.
