This is a poster I did for an upcoming thing in September. I removed the text as the event's details may still be unfolding. I often throw some things I like into an image without too much thought about how they'll contribute to the meaning of the piece as a whole. It's always fun to see how they synch up and become something larger, or present a narrative of some kind. I suppose one's subconscious is doing it's thing, giving you little puzzle pieces to fit together.

Calgary's The Shakespeare Company premiered a play called Queens this week, about some of the Bard's female characters. I provided some illustrations that will be used as projections. I was asked to insert drawings of the actor's faces into specific tarot cards. Using Pamela Colman Smith's illustrations from the Rider-Waite tarot deck, I decided to take it a little further and redid the linework for clarity and tweaked the colors somewhat (a lot).  Below are the original cards alongside my reworkings.

I was asked to provide just a scan of the Tower card as well, but I did this one too, so they would hang together as a series more.
