Animal Totem Tarot published by Llewellyn Worldwide Publishing
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Eugene Smith | Share link:


This week marks the release of Llewellyn’s Animal Totem Tarot, written by Leeza Robertson and illustrated by yours truly! This is a fun deck kit that combines a whole host of animals with traditional tarot symbolism. Whether you like ’em soft and cuddly or hard and gnarly, this deck suits all your animal kingdom needs! I spent the better part of a year working on these beasties and it’s always great to see things come to life in printed form. All artwork was created digitally using Kyle Webster’s amazing Photoshop brushes.

A big thanks is due to Leeza Robertson and Lynne Menturweck of Llewellyn for the awesome art direction.

"Eugene Smith is one of my very favorite illustrators, and I've worked with a ton. He has illustrated 8 or 9 books for my company (including several award winners & at least one New York Times bestseller). His illustrations are always packed with imaginative and rewarding details. He brings a million creative ideas to every assignment. He makes terrific use of light and shadow. He never cuts corners. And he has never, ever missed a deadline. We just hired him for a new project and I can't wait to hire him again."
