Ron's been back at work on our Grande Edition of the Coffee Tarot. I thought I'd share some pics of him in his studio with you. Right now, he's working on the Court Cards for the deck. (If you want to keep track of his progress, visit and "like" our Facebook page here and sign up for the Newsletter here. Our website is Tarot.Coffee).
Scrolls and small white cups will be the symbols for the Pages, metal travel mugs and Horses for the Knights, black mugs and crowns for the Kings and dainty ivory cups and crowns for the Queens.
The elements are represented as Earth=Bronze, Fire=Copper, Air=Silver and Water =Chrome.
Elemental backgrounds for the Courts will be ivy (Earth), flames (Fire), clouds (Air) and waves (Water). Ron's working on the ivy background now. He found some wild ivy growing at the edge of our fence, and is using that as a model.
Here's one of the metal travel mugs (Knight) superimposed on the ivy background. The color of the symbol (in this case, horse) depends on the element (Earth=Bronze, Fire=Copper, Air=Silver and Water =Chrome).
He's using watercolor pencils with this project, and is now coloring the ivy.
