Tarot, Mystics, & The Occult at Light Grey Art Lab

I’m very excited to have been chosen to participate in this upcoming Light Grey Art Lab show. 78 artists and designers were each assigned a card from the tarot deck to illustrate. The show will be going up this October, with prints of the artwork available online and at the gallery. Stay tuned for more information about the show in Minneapolis and how to buy prints.

My assigned card was the Five of Swords. Of course, I had to use the swords suit as an excuse to draw belly dancers. When I researched the meaning of the card, I found out that it’s a somewhat negative card, which can indicate power struggles and betrayal. So the informal title for my piece is “Upstaged.”


Ten Paces “Villains” challenge

The theme for this week’s Ten Paces & Draw challenge was “villains.”

For my swap, I created a final illustration based on a sketch of Hans Gruber from “Die Hard,” drawn by Marloes de Vries.

My illustration:

You can check out Marloes’s sketch over at the Ten Paces blog.

My rough sketch for the swap was of Eve and the Serpent, and Marloes created a final based on it.
