This deck has been illustrated by hand in a digital environment, utilizing the various artistic techniques utilizing today’s software and hardware. The initial inspiration for The Meraki Tarot was to create illustrations that shape a unique and playful world inspired by nature and supports the Rider-Waite Smith tarot system. With a deck that could be used by everyone of all ages, each image was designed to not only represent the foundation of that card’s intrinsic meanings, but to also draw the reader into the graphic messages the cards have to offer. The colors are balanced and full of life, facilitating an intuitive journey. Each card laid out next to one another in any standard or personal configuration tells a beautiful and vibrant story that expand imagination and extract new meaning and ways of approaching all life situations.
The Meraki Tarot is based on the RWS format and The Meraki card has been added to the major arcana along with five informational cards for reference.
