The Fablemaker's Animated Tarot

Art Direction | Illustration | Design | Animation

Art direction, design, illustration, and animation of a deck of animated Tarot cards produced with Hit Point Press. Concept direction and descriptions were provided by Ricardo Evanghelo and Misty Bourne of Hit Point Press. Each card is a looping 8-frame animation for lenticular printing. 


The deck was nominated in the 2023 ENNIE awards for Best RPG-Related Product and the animated Tarot Guidebook won Gold in the Independent Publisher Book Awards (IP Awards).

Minor Arcana & Aces

The King, Queen, Knight, and Page face cards; as well as the Ace (one) cards for the four suits: Coins, Cups, Swords, and Wands. These cards also served as the art direction and style reference for the rest of the number cards (1-9). With prop and fx animation assistance from Kevin Areopagita.

Pip Cards designs

Concept designs and key frames for the numbered cards (1-9) of the Coins, Cups, Swords, and Wands suits. These were later fully animated and rendered by Liam Gregg with the Minor Arcana face cards as the basis for art and animation style.
