A few weeks ago I discovered the Tarot of Loka - I only wish I had heard of it sooner but I've not been very active on the internet for a long time. Anyway, I quickly picked up a couple of packs from Amazon and will no doubt buy some more next month for gifts.

As someone who loves the games of tarot in all their variety, it really gave me heart to see so much talent invested in creating an original pack like this and promoting it for game play. The English speaking world has been missing out and you have created a beautiful temptation for people to discover these games.

I have to say what a wonderful job you've done. As a rule, packs that employ the traditional themes in a double ended format have been created rather crudely by simply repeating the top half of an old full image top and bottom. The only other example of an artist creating double ended designs with these themes in this way was the Erde Tarock, which is an art pack published in a limited edition and so is just for looking at, not playing with. This makes your cards unique - at once traditional and original, beautiful, practical, and produced for playing with.

In fact, I'm so taken by them that I've made a start at re-writing the rules to a selection of Italian, French, and Austrian tarot games, describing them in terms of the Loka, its conventions and suits. When a reasonable number are ready, I'll create a blog or something to post them to.

Thank you so much  for creating these - they are going to give me a lot of pleasure!

I came by after you got a commission for the cover of Legendary Game's new AP, Legendary Planet. With art this superior, I can't wait to see what you come up with. 

As a side, I especially love your Wildborn set. My husband said, "You could put these in an office" - where only the most curious of mind would notice the dragon in the mist or at between the trees.
