Tarot Artist Interview Schedule
I am delighted to announce the following schedule of release dates for My Special ‘Tarot Hot Seat Interviews’, which I hope will become a regular feature on my site. These in-depth interviews feature talented tarot artists and deck creators who I believe you will find most interesting and informative. Julie Cuccia-Watts (Ancestral Path Tarot, Blue Moon Tarot, Maat Tarot and Journey Into Egypt Tarot), Odessa Sawyer, (Illustrator, Doll-Maker and Tarot Artist), and Sarah Wheatley (Asherah Tarot) have very kindly given of their time to answer my probing questions about the work and inspiration behind their Tarot Creations. I think you will agree they have gone beyond any expectations to share a glimpse of their world with us. For any wannabe tarot artist or deck creator looking for direction or guidance, you will find much to interest you. The Tarot Hot Seat Interviews are a must-read for anyone who has ever wondered about the process of creating a deck of tarot, their artist’s source of inspiration or influence, and the stamina required to complete what often takes several years to fully birth.

Tarot Deck Creator, Illustrator & Doll Maker
Superb Collection of Major Arcana
(Excerpts taken from Bio)
Odessa Sawyer “is an illustrator and doll maker from Santa Fe, New Mexico. “
“Her artwork has graced the book covers of many top publishing houses.”
“She has also done work for various film and television projects, posters and album covers, as well as work for HBO, Laika, Duck Studios and COTY.”
“Her work has been published in Lurzer’s Archive as one of the 200 best illustrators worldwide for 2011 and 2014
Highly influenced by fantasy, fairy tales, fashion and classic horror, Odessa’s work celebrates a whimsical dreamy and vibrant quality.”
Odessa’s work is superb and I a newly devoted fan. This is a stand alone Major Arcana Deck which does not appear to have a name at present. It is enchanting, bewitching and very ethereal. I love all of them. The imagery used in Strength is fascinating and just oozes with multiple interpretations. It looks as if the lion and young queen got into a battle of wills or power struggle. Odessa is talented on so many levels. Check out her wonderful handcrafted dolls and strange creatures. She has a very impressive portfolio of art work to her credit. I bet she can sing too!!
