|Sepia Stains Tarot|
by Bethalynne Bajema
Within my graphic novel the Black Ibis there are two tarot decks that serve two different purposes in this somewhat surreal world that exists beneath the everyday one. There is the light Sepia Stains tarot and the darker Black Ibis tarot. A few years back I decided to illustrate the first of the two decks and over the course of several years the full Sepia Stains deck was created. You will find the artwork on the decks is very basic and lacks much of the traditional symbolism of other decks. The cards each represent the very basic definitions of the individual major arcana cards. I learned a great deal about the tarot as I was creating the deck and I hope that despite its basic nature you enjoy using it.
