The Ocean Tarot Deck by Taylor Hultquist-Todd.


From the artist:

"My first attempts at (what I deemed) to be serious art were variations on sharks. I pored over a small guidebook from a book fair, copying each unique snout and jaw. I spent forever making sure that their dorsal fins were properly notched, each eye was placed correctly and dotted with the perfect highlight.  My repertoire grew to include dolphins - I drew them everywhere, ritually adding a tiny dolphin at the end of my middle school signature. Eventually, I devoted a wall of my room to a full mural of ocean life, dutifully adding the sharks and dolphins I had committed to memory.

Around the same time I was getting deep into marine biology, I was also nourishing my spooky side - my obsession with tarot is about as old as mine with the sea, but it never crossed my mind to make a tarot deck about the ocean. It felt too nebulous to capture in even 78 different ways. It's genuinely dizzying at times how rich in life the oceans are, leading to a few scrapped attempts at more refined tarots - cephalopod, cetacean, deep-sea, arctic and tropical, invertebrate, even sea monsters and lore. 

In the end, I had to select a few personal favorites and try my best to include a thoughtful variety of sea life...  

 ... To wrap up this great bit of rambling and hopefully make a point: the ocean is an immense and incredible biome that we're lucky enough to share a planet with. This tarot was truly a joy to work on - from research to final illustration. I hope that this deck can pass on a sense of awe and curiosity, and as a way to make this more accessible I will be offering a PDF with every tier. This PDF will be a full color booklet explaining each card in depth, including facts about each creature or scene.

AND, FINALLY! Booklets! ...There will also be a booklet included with the Ocean tarot."
