Sketch for the Empress from Witches Tarot by Ellen Dugan and Mark Evans
I am Mark Evans. In June of 2010, I started working on the seventy-eight paintings that make up this Tarot Deck.

When I accepted the job, I knew nothing of Tarot and it’s history. I was blessed to have the legendary award-winning author Ellen Dugan as my collaborator. With her guidance and vast knowledge, the meaning and symbolism of each illustration was true to the traditions of the Tarot community.

I thank Ellen and the good people at Llewellyn for including me in such an amazing project.

Each illustration was painted digitally using Adobe Photoshop CS.
