For my thesis, I chose to illustrate a tarot deck suit known as the major arcana. Every card of this suit is represented by a character, and in my series I chose to carefully illustrate each card as an animal. The major arcana is a suit of twenty-two cards found in the standard tarot deck, which is used in modern-day media for divination. Each major arcana card has its own set of meanings and predictions, so I chose animals with cultural folklore and history that aligned best with the message of the card. Each animal was selected from a variety of cultures found around the globe and their aligning myths to deliver an individual message to the card drawer. This notion was inspired by human interpretation of animals being a messenger of a god or a symbol of an outcome. I illustrated the deck with vibrant colors, flora, and imagery in the hopes that when each card is drawn, the animal will offer comfort along with the foretelling.
