What is 78 Tarot?
78 Tarot is a global collaboration of artwork between 78 different artists who have come together to create an entire 78 card Tarot deck! It was a project thought up in early 2014 and it's taken off like a rocket! All artworks from artists are due to be complete by May 1, 2014. At which point there will be a KickStarter campaign to help fund the deck. The KickStarter campaign will offer all kinds of incentives to people who back the project and in the end there will also be this amazing deck we'll be offering for sale! If you'd like to see the deck in progress and learn more about the artists, please visit the 78 Tarot website or Fan Page. *78 Tarot Graphic by Shana at shanashay.com*

Mr. Larry Elmore!
This truly is an incredible project with some really incredible talent! There are some really big names tied to this deck, including that of Mr. Larry Elmore! Some of you may know him from his work with Dungeons and Dragons and the world of Dragonlance, among many other projects. This man is a legend in the Fantasy Art community and we're so lucky to have him on board! When I heard he was joining us to create the Magician card, I honestly panicked a little thinking I may have bit off more than I can chew with this project! He served as a catalyst for me to make my card something I could be proud to show my children years down the road! Please visit Larry's artist section in the 78 Tarot website to learn more about him and his work.*78 Tarot Graphic by Shana at shanashay.com*

9 of Cups
When I came on board with this project I was lucky to squeak in! By the time I signed on most of the cards were spoken for and I think there was only 6 left! I went through all that was left to find the one that would fit me the best and finally settled on 9 of Cups, the Inn Keeper. This is actually a really great card to get during a reading. It's also known as the wish card. It's a very happy upbeat card which fit so perfectly with my work. On top of that, the elements included were things like coral and pearls......this card was meant for me! This card is all about good times and great company and abundance....but it also comes with a side of caution. Be careful what you wish for is the warning that comes with this card. It was a fun card to create - a mermaid and her Octopus friend with a ridiculous amount of wine, chilling out on the bottom of the sea!
