Working on a Tarot Deck

Posted by Rose Hillen

I’ve been working on my own tarot deck for a little while now. The theme is Dia de los Muertos.

As a Filipino woman, I wanted to create a magical deck that could resonate with people similar to me. And Dia de los Muertos is a magical holiday.

I’ve taken the traditional meanings of the Rider-Waite deck and reinterpreted them with my own art style and symbolism.

I’ve drawn inspiration from the various cultures that celebrate Dia de los Muertos, including my own Filipino culture.

Every illustration I do for this deck touches a different aspect of my life profoundly and I’m loving every minute I’ve spent working on it so far.

Soon, I will be launching a Kickstarter to bring this deck to life. If you’d like to know when the Kickstarter launches, please sign up for my newsletter here.
