I’ve always wanted to illustrate a tarot deck, so I’ve taken it on as a side project. It’s has a D&D theme, because I’m just that nerdy, and it’s going to take me forever, but I’ll share progress from time to time!

Emma Frost by Terry Dodson. By far my favourite artist. Look how fabulous he draws her.
Please, let’s not forget his partner Rachel Dodson. I mean, without her, he’s great. Together, they’re amazing.
I miss seeing Terry and Rachel drawing Emma.
It’s been a while since I did these, but they’ve finally been published! Artwork for some promotional material advertising Reed College’s 2013 Reunions festivities. Art direction by Laura Pritchard. Unfortunately I don’t have the final versions with text included, but at least you can take a gander at the art.
The Hindu goddess Lakshmi (many alternate spellings exist). Entry number six in my Goddess Series!
Like many Hindu deities, Lakshmi has literally dozens of different forms, incarnations and names, has complex relationships with other deities (like Vishnu and Ganesh) and plays many roles. She’s probably best known for being a goddess of abundance - and that can mean simple good luck, personal fulfillment, or material wealth. Lakshmi is the one who fills your cup!
Diwali, a festival of lights and of the abundance of the harvest, is the biggest holiday devoted to her. It’s coming up a little late this year, on November 13-17. (It’s a lunar holiday that most often hits around the end of October.)
In most devotional images Lakshmi is depicted standing or sitting in a giant lotus blossom, floating on a tranquil sea - a bit like Aphrodite, she was born from the ocean. She has four arms (the better to distribute wealth!) and holds lotuses in two of them. She is sometimes attended by two white elephants. This is an illustration, not a traditional devotional image, so she is behaving a little less formally here! Lakshmi is generous of spirit, so hopefully she won’t hold it against me.
I tend to like goddesses who are a little scary or dangerous, but it’s impossible not to love Lakshmi.
