The Devil Tarot

I've been meaning to do my own version of the Tarot Major Arcana, so here's the second in the series of twenty one (the first was The Hanged Man). The Fool is on a journey and has both wisdom and a childlike innocence.

UPDATE: the third in this series, The Magician, represents masculinity and the power of will.

UPDATE 2: the fourth in this series, The High Priestess, represents the power of instinct. She is also the keeper and knower of secrets.

That 'fool' thing is one of the scariest pictures ever. It looks like a psychobaby. And the high priestess one isn't much better, looks like a supernatural trollop who'd have body parts in her fridge.

Babies are stupid. They can't stand up by themselves. For fuck's sake, they even shit themselves! And they're freeloaders - when did you ever hear of a baby getting a job? Never, that's when.

The sooner we send them all back where they came from, the better it'll be for our country.

What the fuck is this all about?

MonaCO,

I like to put together bits of artwork, to keep my hand in.

Anon,

That's not Photoshopping: that's what Mr E actually looks like. Babyish, yes, but pub managers always serve him once they look into his eyes...

Your work's very reminiscent of Dave McKean (and obv. his Vertigo tarot)- an influence?

Anon,

Yes, Dave McKean is the finest artist in the wold ever, IMHO and of course his Particle Tarot has been an influence. Let's face it, the man's a genius.

Mirrormask, whilst not the best made film, was, for me, an hour and a half moving artwork.

I aspire to be that good. One day.
