IN A NUTSHELL
A high quality photo poster, made to order, of the Death card from the Spirit Vertigo Tarot concept art, 16x20”.
Death in tarot symbolizes remarkable change and rites of passage as well your classic memento mori imagery. It’s about letting go of one phase to embrace the next, and leaning into the mysteries of one-way growth, points of no return, and uncertain journeys.
In this design, sickle crescents frame upper and under-ground views of a night cemetery. The upper skeleton is the allegorical Death. Their right hand receives and their left hand releases. Tall and proud, They reign and They abide. Underground, the human dead dance in celebration, and lie in repose, all pushing up the dahlias, marigolds, mums, lilies, and willows. The stars in the vaulted night sky echo the grains of mica, stone, and muck in the soil.
This print features concept art circa 2015 from the Spirit Vertigo Tarot, a deck in progress which I will be reworking in a new medium as I no longer use this fine marker technique. The initial concept illustrations will only be available as prints and posters. I’ve selected highlights from the deck in progress to feature in the shop, but you can order an 8x10” custom print or message to request a 16x20” poster with any of the images currently on the Spirit Vertigo portfolio.
