Packaging artwork

I thought it might be interesting to show the final files for the box artwork for a deck of cards….

Here are the top and bottom pieces of artwork for the Greek Mythology Reading cards available from Inner Traditions/Bear and Co, Findhorn Press, Amazon and all good book shops.

This is complex and precision artwork involving many many layers.

In Conversation with Susan Larison Danz

I was very kindly asked by Susan Larison Danz to contribute an hours conversation to her BlogTalkRadio channel – The Frontier Beyond Fear. We completed this this morning and it is now available to listen to by clicking here. Topics range from the Tai Chi Reflections cards, commissioning book covers, calligraphy and my life in Thailand,

Susan and I have worked together on a few projects over the last few years and it was very pleasant to finally get to speak to her and have such a long and interesting chat.
