In the midst of the global financial crisis, there were some surprising changes to the way that cards were drawn.
It’s a bit like how the world has changed.
Now, cards are actually printed on the card itself, rather than the cardholder’s face, according to card designer and photographer, David Cote.
Read moreDavid Cote has been drawing tarot card images since the late 1990s, and he’s been doing so for more than 15 years.
But he’s not just doing it with the cards themselves, but also with the people that draw them.
“I’ve seen it all before,” Cote told TechRadars.
“I’ve never seen something so much as a black-and-white image with just a tiny bit of white.
But, for the first time ever, the cards are being made with human beings as the creators.”
In other words, the card is being created from scratch, by real people.
It’s a big step forward, Cote says, and one that’s been in the works for a while.
Cote has had a number of tarot artists working with him over the years, but he says that, for him, the most exciting part of his work is working with people that aren’t just playing cards, but that actually create the cards that he draws.
I’ve been lucky enough to have the ability to work with a few really good artists who have created some really amazing images, and it’s always been a dream of mine that I could get my hands on some of those.
“Cote says that he doesn’t get to use any of the cards, although he can occasionally use them for his own artwork.
But, he’s always the first to tell us that he gets to draw the cards himself.”
I love the way it takes time and dedication to get the image done, and that it’s a collaborative effort.””
And that’s the kind of thing I really like about this whole process.
I love the way it takes time and dedication to get the image done, and that it’s a collaborative effort.”
Cotes says that the process is not easy, and some of the artists that he’s worked with have said that they can’t even draw an accurate representation of what they’re drawing.
But Cote insists that he loves it, and wants to continue doing it for as long as possible.
“You can’t imagine how many tarot images I’ve had in my collection that I never even touched, and I can’t get those images out of my head, so I just love it,” he said, laughing.
In other news, Cotes recently released his second book of tarots, and you can read more about it here: http://trib.in/3u0l2wA Read moreDavid has been making tarot art for over 15 years, and while it’s only just been two years since his first book, there’s no doubt that it has a lot of meaning to him.
“I never expected to have a book, but when you see the work that I’m doing, it’s just incredible,” he told Techradars.
The book was released in 2015, but Cote was able to go back to work on the artwork from the book, which he says is now done up to 400 pages in size.
“It’s amazing to see the result of my love for the art of taroting,” he says.
And now that the tarot has moved on from his first collection, David has set his sights on the next one.
“We’re working on something that will be really similar to this one, and then we’re going to have an updated edition of the tarots,” he explained.
“Then we’ll move on to something completely different, and maybe a completely different book.”
Read moreCote told us that one of the things that he likes most about tarot is that it gives him the opportunity to see all the different shapes that he can create, and what he sees when he draws them.
“It gives me a lot more freedom in my drawing,” he added.
David says that his art is meant to be fun and playful, and the result is something that has lots of potential to be a lot bigger than just one tarot book.
