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. Over the next few months, Witches Tarot will give everyone a peak into the creative process used to craft this magickal deck.
