What is automatic art you wonder? It is art done under a trance state to help divine a message. While channeling is most often used to connect with a spirit or deity, it can also be used to connect with yourself. This is very handy when processing deep emotions like trauma or child wounds. The art allows the subconscious to speak without the conscious filtering it. Exercises are done the next day to process what is being conveyed and release it.

I have examples of both an emotionally channeled one (done when my abusive father died) and ones that accompanied a card reading (adding an extra layer to the reading).

I attempted a rune card set that year. Things got crazy so I could not finish them. I definitely will be revisiting this for production later. There has been interest.

Mesopotamian Tarot: I designed these three for a collaborative tarot deck, didn't end up completed. 

This was my first Inktober challenge and first deck of cards I created for a daily challenge. It is an oracle deck based on the group of deities called Azerate. I based it on depictions within The Grimoire of Tiamat. I may have not followed any list, but I did keep it to ink (sharpie and ballpoint).  

I started to do research into finding more authentic depictions where possible. I want to flesh this into a major working deck for production one day.

These are some tarot art I've done for various projects. They may or may not end up in a full deck, no real plans at the moment.

Random Tarot Sketches

Most of my divination pieces were created within Fun a Day and Inktober. I use those challenges to create mock ups of decks that I may extend to mass production later. Within this page is automatic art, tarot art, and misc decks that are not apart of the aforementioned series.

Yes/No Cards

Voltaire Oracle 2020

Yes/No cards are a new oracle type that is designed to facilitate answering yes or no questions easier than how you do so with tarot. Not an overly popular deck style, but I figured I'd do a few designs.

This was my first shot at creating a hand painted deck. I opted for the Lenormand because it was closest to 31 total cards (36) of the divination decks. It has some roughness in the execution so I will redo this before I contemplate going to production.

Elemental Dragons: Three knights that were requested by a collaborative deck, did not get completed. 

TW: Body horror, trauma, rape, addiction, suicide. The art within depicts some heavy topics which can be triggering for some. If you are sensitive, please use caution when viewing the galleries.

D-org Tarot: I was hired to do a few cards for a Draconity.org collaborative tarot deck. Will be available for print on demand soon. Yes some subtle, tiny black light accents as well as light effect paints.

This year was rough. I created a fan art oracle based off of my favorite artist Aurelio Voltaire. I even gave them meanings so people could give themselves readings at the shows. Unfortunately only one show made it before lockdown began, so the other group got robbed.
