It is with great sadness that I put this blog on hold for health reasons. Hopefully I’ll be back soon. In the meantime, I will keep sharing art regularly through my Instagram, so please follow! I’ll miss it here very much. ❤

Adjacent cards in each suit line up side by side to form a panoramic picture and story. What a fabulous concept, and seemingly quite well executed here. The deck comes with a 100 page guide book.
You can view each card and read more about the deck on the About Page.
Here are just a few of the rare ghost illustrations I’ve collected over the years.
I love seeing the way different illustrators represent the dearly (and not-so-dearly) departed.
Hat tip to Frank Zumbach for posting a number of these!
Chad Wehrle sites the “masters of spook” Stephen Gammell, Edward Gorey and Donn Kenn among his influences.
I see Gammell’s spirit most of all in this work (which is great because he’s one of my all time favorite illustrators).
I just love the effect of broad, skillful smudging/erasing combined with very fine line work.
Vilde Furdal Nymoen paints vertically elongated portraits of (mostly) girls, sans hair, with colorful worlds emerging from the top of their heads.
Each has its own theme, and they look absolutely beautiful displayed as triptychs. What do you think about the intentional omission of hair (I can’t help but be reminded of Eleven in Stranger Things every time I look at this art!)?
