I really want to design my own tarot card deck, but would have no idea where to start. There are so many themes I could pick that I have no idea where to start.

Speaking of themes I need to pick one or 2 for college. For the one class she told us that what ever we brought in, make sure its transportable and its better to pick a theme that we would love. hmm I know I could find a small horse that would fit in the lift, but somehow I don't think that would go over too well :p well she did say small and easily carried :p

They have this old Singer in one of the rooms so I thought I might pick sewing as one of the themes. I figure there are so many things in that theme I could draw it might work well. If not I need to spend the weekend thinking up a theme that will lend itself to lots of drawing and something I have in the flat or can get cheap at the charity shops (hmm don't think I will find a pony at the charity shop :p)

The title of your post frightened me when I saw it on my blog roll! Good thing I am used to your humor :-)
When picking a theme, just make sure it's something you would want to draw, or however you are to develop work from it, as well as something you like. Maybe toy horses?

I was thinking Tarot cards. Of course that would involve looking at others artwork (art on the tarot) but you could also find objects to bring that are related to tarot?

I love Ingrid's idea. Perhaps use a very old deck like a Marseilles and use the metaphors of a few or a single card? Or a horse themed deck... Hmmmm.

That looks like a Lisa Hunt Dragon deck... And is that the Tower in the outcome for the cow?!?

Designing tarot cards sounds like a facinating idea! Goodness, picking a theme, I think my brain just locked up. Good luck with that! :-)

lol Ann I didn't even think the title would be taken that way lol sorry :) I wish I had some toy horses, don't think using a my little pony would go over too well tho ;)

Ingrid- thank you so much for that suggestion, got my mind working on a theme :D

Michelle- yep thats the deck :) I think its the two of pentacles instead, can't remember :) I would love a horse themed deck

Teresa- I think I have picked a theme that will work now *crosses fingers* thanks :D

thanks Shashi :D hopefully the chosen theme will produce some nice pieces of art :)
