Art today sadly seems to be more about plagarism, pastiche and poor rendering than creative exploration and expression! That is why fountain pen ink art is such a special medium. Here is my Major Arcana Tarot Deck created with Fountain Pen Ink, water and bleach with the minimal amount of computer assistance to set up the print artwork. Art from destruction and totally authentic utilising the natural chromatography, serendipity and alchemy inherent in this genre. Once these are back from the printers and photographed, I will post a more detailed account about the Personal Tarot project both here and on my blog.

Ah so you (hand)made the original bunch and are getting reproductions made from them? Makes perfect sense I thought there was some printing done on the originals, dunno why...

Stunning as always, Nick.  I'm not at all into Tarot cards but these are fantastic!

Many thanks. I have done these for an ink and bleach portfolio I’m putting together to try and get commissioned work from publishing houses and packaging design studios. I’m quietly confident there won’t be too much competition using this genre. Just gotta hope that it works.
