Ace of Cups Tarot Card Artwork in the Making
I was recently tasked with creating an image of a slit fist, bleeding into a chalice – at the same time, I’ve been playing around with the idea of slowly (very slowly) creating my own tarot deck. It occurred to me that this piece could have a double purpose, serving as the ace of cups tarot card artwork as well as being an album cover for The Owls Are Not What They Seem.
This is just an initial concept sketch, but I like where it’s headed in terms of the symbolism and layout. I made sure this piece could be cropped to fit within a square CD, rectangular cassette, or a tarot card without losing any of the important elements.
I will probably move the top of the window and the foreground elements down a bit more to center them and leave room to finish the window arch at the top, but otherwise, I’m pretty happy with the concept and would like to see it painted soon.
