I am so disconnected from the tarot, and almost even uninterested, that it wouldn't feel fair to design a deck. I feel it would ruin it.



Tarot aside you could make a non-traditional card set. While most card collectors think about sports cards there are a lot of collectors that focus upon what is termed Non-Traditional card decks. Non traditional decks include artists regardless of genre, things like Mars Attacks cards, the old Wacky Pack card series, ships and transportation, heck even the most wanted cards that were issued for Iraq. Lots of potentials there. Number of cards per issue often varies from genre to genre though many of them have something in the order of 50 cards per deck though Disney type cards tended to have something like 25 per deck with a few special foils, 3d or puzzle type cards included as well.

Yes, many tarot lovers also make use of non-traditional decks. The cards in non-traditional decks may or may not refer to the two main traditional tarot systems, Tarot de Marseille and Raider-Waite-Smith.
That meaning that one may just create his/her own deck, with one's own cards and symbolism. I always lacked the skills, but the day I'll have the time to start a serious art class I will start drawing my deck. The only card that I have produced so far, you can see in my avatar.

The reason I suggested you draw a deck is because, when I looked at your drawings, they talked to me. The same way that tarot-cards talk to me. Like a key that opens a door.
I could see myself using cards with these drawings (and I'm a picky tarot-reader, I normally only go for TdM decks, with an exception for Etteilla).
Then I know people who hate when others try to elaborate on their art, so sorry if this all sounds weird to you.

not at all! it actually means a lot to me, because these drawings spoke to me very much when i was making them. At the time i felt like i was documenting a war lol so it's good that others see things in them too.

Barsa, truly amazing. Your art is transcendent, it truly evokes the energy of the time it was created I am sure. As a fellow artist who also has experimented with ball point, you have truly mastered this form. If you can, find a motivator to take this up again!
